I found the video below quite fascinating. While I am not an atheist, I am interested in the many and varied perspectives that people have of who and/or what god is.
Before viewing the video, I had never heard of Alvin Plantinga so I didn’t have any idea what to expect. Since then, I have done a little research and find he is described as a “philosopher/theologian.” Wikipedia states he is a Christian who applies “methods of analytic philosophy to defend orthodox Christian beliefs.”
When presented with questions about God’s existence, he certainly answers in the same tenor of every Christian I have ever heard.
I found many of his answers to be nothing more than a nonsensical jumble of words. Instead of taking a true stand on his beliefs and offering solid evidence, he meandered through the usual language of the Christian religious.
The other thing that stood out to me is the constant reference by both parties to “God” as gender-specific. To me, God is an intangible spirit and therefore has no gender but of course, the debate passionately rages on.
