Mitch Stokes is a Senior Fellow of Philosophy at New St. Andrews College in Moscow, Idaho. He received his Ph.D. in philosophy from Notre Dame under the direction of Alvin Plantinga and Peter van Inwagen. At Yale, he earned an M.A. in religion under the direction of Nicholas Wolterstorff. He also holds an M.S. in mechanical engineering and, prior to his philosophy career, worked for an international engineering firm where he earned five patents in aeroderivative gas turbine technology. This might explain why he wrote a book called How to be an Atheist. While atheists champion the importance of a critical stance toward religion, they often fail to take that same stance toward their own beliefs. This double standard results in grandiose claims about the certainty of their unbelief—which is logically inconsistent at best and intellectually dishonest at worst.
In CrossPolitic news we discuss Bruce Jenner’s recent criticism of President Donald Trump, and why Bruce’s transgendered standards for the olympics are discriminatory.

On behalf of the Host!
Cross Politic (Christ over politics) mixes the taboo formula of faith, culture, and politics in order to bring the clarity of the gospel into muddle-American. We are a community of Christians who desire to see the Lordship of Christ in every corner of our culture, reigning over every politician, and changing every individual for our good and His glory.
