  1. As I was unable to attend the last class due to weather and distance, could the two gentlemen who asked me to be in their project (008-01) please contact me via D2L or school email or even here as I do not know your full names.

  2. For our group presentation my contribution was looking up a webpage, or different webpages that I felt went along with my standings on what I believe about God. Each member of our group has a different opinion about the belief of God therefore, each member was to find some article or webpage that went along with his or her beliefs. I found a post by a philosopher name William Lane Craig that was discussing if God existed or not. His blog post stated that he did believe and showed the eight reasons why he did. He discussed various reasons of why he did, some I agree with and others I am on the fence about. His views are not necessarily those of a Christian, but from someone who find logical reasoning to believe that there is a God who is the reason for everything. He released a book that answered questions that non-believers and believers have. I took my own opinions and beliefs and compared them to what his were. The reasons he gave were reasons that I would give to someone else I just could ever find the right explanation. During our presentation I look forward to sharing some of his views and how they do or do not correlate to my beliefs.
