Written on November 28, 2017
The essay below was originally published as a video on YouTube. I've finally published the text version here, with all of the photos and artwork that are in the video.
Is it non-intellectual and foolish to believe that God exists? Is there any evidence in the world around us that will demonstrate that God exists and also show us what God is like? more
