    The host here is very intellectually dishonest. Empricism does not explain Cosmogenesis nor Abiogenesis. He also erroneously implies that naturalism does away with supernatural explanations due to empiricism when knowledge of God is in the realm of logical inference and philosophy.

  • Secularism in it's pure form is more akin to fanaticism than most would care to admit.  The often borderline violent reaction I have received when attempting to share my hope in the Gospel of Christ with an ardent secularist is akin to the reception I have had from Muslim fanatics when attempting the same.  Actually at least in the case of the latter they have been willing to engage in some kind of argument.  Secular belief are held up as "Non Relious".  That's sort of what the name secular means however we are increasingly controlled by these "Beliefs" whether we are secular or religious.  No need to sell them in schools sorry.  Just turn on TV and bombard your kids with this religion.  Secularism is a religion.  It's ideals are worshiped and defended.
