We are Reasonable Faith at the University of Texas of Dallas! We meet each week to explore evidence for the truth of Christianity to the campus at large and to provide a safe and welcoming community on campus where discussions on the deeper questions of life can take place for individuals from all backgrounds and beliefs (Agnostic, Atheist, Muslim, Hindu…).
Our typical meetings look like a presentation for about an hour followed by Q&A for around 15-20 minutes. After each meeting, folks will typically stay later to keep the discussion going and to hangout. Each week, we bring in expert speakers to present and lead a discussion on evidence from science, history and philosophy related to life’s big questions such as…
- Why are we here?
- Does God exist?
- Are science and faith in conflict?
- Is morality objective?
- Is there evidence for Christianity?
We don’t claim to have all the answers but want to try to tackle the tough questions and bring speakers who have researched topics in detail. People from all religions and backgrounds are welcome! The more diversity in perspectives, the more interesting the discussion! Too often people tend to make uninformed decisions in these important areas – they may not even realize how much evidence is relevant to these deep philosophical questions.
Founded in 2010, Reasonable Faith at UTD is the 1st campus chapter of the international Christian apologetics organization Reasonable Faith founded by the famous philosopher, debater, and author Dr. William Lane Craig. Check out his website at reasonablefaith.org and some of his debates for yourself! Our group was started in 2010 by Garrett Engel and Charlie Holman and Allen Hainline.
