    I may be late, because OC Transpo is utterly useless and Bell's Corners exists. Both are objectively bad, but do not serve to reinforce any argument from morality or moral order.

    I am struggling with the moral argument. I happen to think that Craig's formulation is invalid due to affirming the consequent. It would be a thrill for me

    Can science really explain everything or do we, at some point, must accept the possibility of an Intelligent Creator? Notice I didn't say God.

      What I found interesting in your comment is when you say at some point. Science still make new discoveries, when science will have nothing more to find your question could be revisited. Before science stop make new discoveries it could take several thousand years. Until them it is premature to accept the IC possibility.

      Suggestion: Many people find that the Meetup message area is not a good place to engage in discussion. We have a google group set up for that purpose - cfi-ottawa-apologetics-d­iscussion. For anyone who would like to be added to this discussion group, please send an email to [masked]
