I found Mike in the Youtube Comment Section of my Lee Strobel Video.
0:01 Beginning of discussion with introductions.
1:34 Doug does his Rapunzel impersonation. Doug's 5 min testimony follows.
7:00 Mike asks Doug "Why do you think you know the truth?" Is atheism a stance on knowledge or belief?
11:35 God is like the number "6" on a die when it comes to belief and knowledge.
17:50 Doug gives an example of where belief and knowledge diverge using a pen and a U.S. recession.
23:46 Mike agrees with me on belief and knowledge? "yeah but ..."
26:11 Mike says "We don't know as much as we think we know." Does that apply to the topic of Mike's God?
28:03 Is your confidence in God more like knowing a pen will fall or knowing a U.S. recession will occur in the next 2 years?
30:40 It's more certain that Jesus rose from the dead, than he was God in flesh.
34:04 What is "faith" to Mike?
35:20 I get a "wow" from Mike with my question :)
39:04 What's more likely, 500 witnesses saw a risen Jesus, or a text just says they did?
40:38 The fire breathing dragon thought experiment (what would you need to see to believe in a fire breathing dragon? Is this the same types of evidence for Jesus?)
50:07 "That's a very fair statement."
51:52 "Jesus is not a special case???" Jesus vs Genghis Khan.
57:13 "If you're a normal human being like me ..." :)
59:04 What if the NT said Jesus had a dog named "Fido" Am I way off base here? "No, but ..."
1:00:58 "Let me give you an example of how you could have answered ..."
1:03:51 Eureka! I think we agree that certain claims require something more!!! ( 1:04:20 )
1:05:39 Let's talk about why you REALLY believe.
1:09:51 Outsider test for faith. How do you know you're not that person? Why don't you go first.
1:13:24 Is the belief rooted in an amazing personal experience or the ancient evidence??
1:17:37 Is it irrational to believe in the Avenger's god Odin due to an amazing personal experience?
1:25:05 What Doug loves.
1:27:33 The Muslim's or believer in Odin's personal experience could have been more powerful than yours. "Right, Exactly".
1:30:43 Mike explains the scientific method to me ... BTW, I have a master's degree in analytical chemistry :)
1:34:41 I have a confession to make.
