"Here equipping the body is not an afterthought, it is the mission. How gloriously counter-cultural!"

- Dr. Paul F. M. Zahl

Do We Need God?

Is belief in God dangerous? Is it something we need to eradicate from society, or does it give us hope, purpose, and meaning?

Larry Taunton of Fixed Point Foundation goes head-to-head against atheist Michael Shermer of Skeptic magazine for an electric encounter in America’s most secular city: Seattle. According to Taunton, “Every meaningful movement in the history of the West has been fueled by Christianity, because they all appealed to a higher law.” God, he believes, is far from irrelevant.

On the other side, Michael Shermer of Skeptic magazine asserts that religion is largely to blame for some of the worst atrocities in human history. He maintains that mankind’s progress has brought us to a place where faith should be abandoned altogether. It's the biggest question of all time: Do we need God?

The Fixed Point Fix

The FixWelcome to The Fixed Point Fix: a central hub for relevant news, video, audio, articles, and more curated by Larry Taunton and the Fixed Point Foundation staff.

Since 2011, the Fix has been a resource for thought-provoking content to help you understand how sacred and secular meet.  While remaining unashamed of Christianity, we aim the Fix at a public audience.  Our goal is to facilitate conversations about eternal things through secular portals that point people to the hope of Christ.  Stop by, get your fix, and start a meaningful conversation.
