Debating out-of-body and near-death experiences: Susan Blackmore & Graham Nicholls  

As as student Susan Blackmore had an out-of-body experience that convinced her of the paranormal.

Moses and the Exodus - Archaeological Fact or Fictional Fable? Ted Wright vs Bob Price  

Critics of the Old Testament say that the story of Moses leading the Israelites out of slavery in Egypt is a myth and that no archaeological evidence outside scripture exists for the story.

However, Ted Wright of Epic Archaeology believes that critics are misdating the story of the Exodus and that there is archeological evidence in the reign of an ancient Pharaoh that supports the story.

Bob Price believes the Old Testament is mainly fictional and interacts with Ted on why he believes the evidence doesn't stack up in favour of their being a Moses or an Exodus.

Why are there differences in the Gospels? Mike Licona & Richard Burridge  

Differences between the same stories, words and timelines in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John have been noted since the early days of the Church. Critics claim the differences put the historical reliability of the Gospels into question.

New Testament scholar Mike Licona's new research in his book "Why are there differences in the Gospels? What we can learn from ancient biography" aims to show why many of the differences can be explained by the literary conventions of the day adopted by historians such as Plutarch.

Mike's work builds on the scholarship of Revd Professor Richard Burridge, Dean of Kings College London whose seminal work "What are the Gospels?" made the case for their genre as Ancient Biography.

Christian apologist Frank Turek is an author, speaker and radio show host well known for engaging sceptical students. In this show he dialogues with young atheist Alex O Connor who runs the popular Cosmic Skeptic YouTube channel.

After Frank posted a video about why the existence of evil may in fact show that God exists, Alex created a response video. They discuss whether objective morality exists (Alex says ‘no’) and whether undirected evolution can account for our moral beliefs.
