Reasons to Believe?

Apolo­get­ics is the art of answer­ing crit­i­cal ques­tions about a reli­gion and in pro­vid­ing pos­i­tive rea­sons to believe in a reli­gion, both as a reas­sur­ance to cur­rent believ­ers and as an invi­ta­tion for unbe­liev­ers to become believers.

If you’re one of the rare few who come here with very lit­tle expe­ri­ence with reli­gion, then you might be won­der­ing just how many rea­sons there could be to believe in things which don’t exists — you’d be hard pressed to find any lit­er­a­ture defend­ing the exis­tence of the Wicked Witch of the West, after all. Thou­sands upon thou­sands of pages have been writ­ten through­out his­to­ry in defense of Chris­tian­i­ty alone, not includ­ing apol­o­gists for any of the world’s oth­er religions.

Com­pre­hen­sive­ly respond­ing to every rea­son which apol­o­gists have giv­en through the years would be a mon­u­men­tal task, so what I hope to accom­plish here is look­ing at some of my favorite rea­sons to believe which I have come across.
