I stumbled upon PragerU videos a number of years ago, which are mostly right wing political videos - not the topic of this forum. I did find recently they now have a Religion/Philosophy channel, and watched one which sparked my interest. The video " Does God Exist? 4 New Arguments" suggests there are 4 so called Big Bangs - leaps forward which are not explained by secularism.
- Cosmological (Creation)
- Biological (Life from Non Life)
- Anthropological (Humans different than Animals)
- Psychological (Humans ability to reason, reflect, be self-aware, and ask Why questions)
Any thoughts on if this has merit to discuss or share with agnostics? I’m interested in videos for young agnostics that hopefully with get them to think (young being 15-25 who may have an interest sparked by these short format videos)
The videos have had a large number of views, so somebody is watching them and being influenced by them. On their website it says that 65% are viewers under the age of 35.
A mild concern I do have in using or referencing these videos would be the association with right wing conservative politics. I only look at America political culture from the outside, through the distorted lens of our obviously left-wing main stream media here in Australia.
Do you think that it would be wise or unwise to use these when sharing about the message of Jesus as a starting point to get people to think? It is good that there is a philosophy/religion channel here - people interested in politics, may then watch videos about the real and important questions of life.
