Take the next step in apologetics and go deep into the study of the metaphysical. You will study miracles such as the Resurrection, the Shroud of Turin, and the Day the Sun Danced. Join Catholic apologist Gary Michuta and discover the beauty that lies within our Church.
Outside of the metaphysical proofs for the existence of God there are other phenomena that point to God’s existence that cannot be accounted for by a materialistic atheistic worldview. In this course, we will look at a variety of these phenomenon such as the resurrection, miracles, near-death experiences, miraculous images (i.e., Shroud of Turin, etc.), which speaks against atheism.
