In 1927, Bertrand Russell delivered a now-famous address entitled ‘Why I Am Not A Christian’.

Today we discuss who counts as a Christian, the first cause argument (as well as a couple other arguments in the same family), and the natural law argument.
“Three passions, simple but overwhelmingly strong, have governed my life: the longing for love, the search for knowledge, and unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind. . . . This has been my life. I have found it worth living, and would gladly live it again if the chance were offered me.”
