Eric’s opening statement: Premises: 1) Existence does not come from non-existence. 2) Something exists. 3) Something is eternal. 4) The universe is not eternal. 5)Whatever is eternal transcends the universe. 6) Whatever is eternal is the source of all things created. 7) Whatever is eternal is the source of all power existing. 8) Whatever is eternal is intelligent. 9) Lawrence Krauss vs. Hamza Tzortzis http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uSwJuOPG4FI. Conclusion: Something exists that is eternal, transcendent, the source of all things created, all-powerful and intelligent. The atheist has to suppress: 1) An inner testimony of the existence of a god. 2) powerful urge to ascribe moral culpability to people who commit evil. 3) War against any feeling of guilt.4) Inner testimony of having greater value than other types of animals.

Matt’s opening: The Principle trailer, documentary on a geocentric universe: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8cBvMCucTg, Lawrence Krauss’ article on the “documentary”: http://www.slate.com/blogs/future_tense/2014/04/08/lawrence_krauss_on_ending_up_in_the_geocentricism_documentary_the_principle.html, The God of the Bible is loosely defined. Matthew 18:19. God is either the worst communicator or doesn’t exist. Apologist arguments usually point to deism. God concept has no explanatory power. Occam’s razor.
Eric’s rebuttal: God has revealed himself to men, who have suppressed the truth: Romans 1. Quotes from The Miracle of the Resurrection on Infidels.org: http://infidels.org/library/modern/jeff_lowder/jesus_resurrection/chap3.html.
