You've heard it before: Students enter college Christian, but graduate atheist, Buddhist, Jedi, whatever.
TrueU.org is a community for students who want to know and confidently discuss the Christian worldview. Our hope is that you'll graduate with your faith not only intact, but stronger than it was before.
Sounds like it has the potential to be a good resource. I've added it to my list of apologetics websites, which includes: Apologetics Index, Ravi Zacharias International Ministries, and Stand to Reason.
As my first taste of TrueU.org, I read a series of articles from the site by Blake Roeber on "Anselm's Ontological Argument" (part 1, part 2, part 3). As much as I am not a philosophy kind of guy, I actually read through the articles. Turns out I couldn't quite get my mind around it, especially point (5) in Roeber's outline of Anselm's argument ... my brain hurts! So why did I read the articles - and late at night, at that? Here's what hooked my interest:
The ontological argument — first formulated by Anselm but reformulated many times since — is 927 years old and still attracts the attention of the smartest people on earth. In contrast, the articles in this morning's newspaper are only a day old and they'll be largely forgotten by tomorrow — completely forgotten in a year. Da Vinci Code will be forgotten in 10. If you have to choose between them, you'd be better off reading Anselm than the newspaper or Da Vinci Code, I'd say.
