The RLT Cinema player is located in the widget sidebar to the right. Simply scroll down and click the top video, which is the feature of today’s post.
Today’s RLT Cinema feature is a 1959 interview with famed British mathematician and atheist, Bertrand Russell. I started reading Russell’s “Why I Am Not A Christian” several years ago, and found it so boring and non-convincing that I put it down (but because of this post, I’m going to pick it up again!). In this short segment, he reveals his reasons for not believing in God, and talks about his lack of belief in an afterlife.
What are your reasons for believing in God, or not? Why do you belief what you believe? Is it, as Russell stated, because it is useful, or because it is true? To take it a step further, do you believe what you believe because it is convenient, or because it is true?
