Welcome to Real Clear Apologetics!
Our mission is to provide clear information regarding worldviews and to create an online community that fosters healthy dialogue regarding them.
Although our website is Christian leaning, we hope to encourage conversation across all worldviews. As Proverbs 18:17 says, “The first to plead his case seems right, until another comes to examine him.” Our goal at RCA is to provide a place where each individual has a chance to present his or her own view and examine the views of others.
If this is your first time on the RCA website, here are the three essential ways in which our site functions:
The Areopagus was the high Court of Appeals for the Greeks and the term is still used today to refer to the highest court in Greece. Ares was supposedly tried by the gods for the murder of Poseidon’s son Alirrothios at the Areopagues. The Areopagus of RCA is where worldviews will go on trial. It is here that philosophers, theologians, professors, and the like will be able to post their published works. We hope to provide the scholarly work of individuals that represent various worldviews and by doing so allow RCA members to learn from the best on certain apologetic issues.
The City Gates
In biblical times, The City Gates was a place where town leaders would meet to discuss important matters. As Proverbs 24:7 tells us, “Wisdom is too high for fools; in the assembly at the gate they must not open their mouths.” The City Gates of RCA is a place where common leaders can discuss important matters, and where fools may be silenced. This section will include pastors, apologetic “junkies,” students, and bloggers. The idea here is that people will be able to post their thoughts, comments, ideas, and blogs in one centralized location.
The Marketplace is our online store. Here people will be able to buy books published by Christians, Atheists, Muslims and so forth. More specifically, our goal is to offer packaged deals, for example, God is Not Great by Christopher Hitchens along with God is Great, God is Good edited by Chad Meister and William Lane Craig.
