Post Christian Reseach Institute / Hank Hanegraaff / Origins

Greetings Earthlings!
I'm brand new to this forum so I did some searching first, but did not see any topics regarding the Christian Research Institute or it's president Hank Hanegraaff. For those not familiar, Hanegraaff is the author of 16 books (including "The FACE That Demonstrates the Farce of Evolution") and has been host of the international radio broadcast "The Bible Answer Man" since 1989. It's currently on 169 radio stations throughout the US and Canada. CRI's total gross revenue was $4.3M in 2015.

After being raised Roman Catholic my whole life in Buffalo, NY, I discovered Hanegraaff's radio broadcast one day during my work commute while living in Maryland back in the 1996. As a "twenty-something" then and quite naive, I fell prey to CRI's Christian apologetics and soon became a "reproducing disciple maker" evangelical and ended up raising my children in that regard as well.

Since my full deconversion some time ago, I've kept tabs on CRI and I noticed that Hanegraaff recently did a 3 part series on Origins with Dr. Paul Nelson of the Discovery Institute. Nelson has a new film out produced by Illustra Media titled, "Origin: Design, Chance and the First Life on Earth." (http://www.originthefilm.com/)

I've recently wondered if Aron or anyone has ever attempted to challenge CRI, Hanegraaff, or request to be on his show? One of the reasons that Hanegraaff's radio program and ministry are so successful is that he never hosts any guests on the show with opposing scientific views. I was utterly convinced of Christianity back then due to this fact. All of the biologists, physicists, psychologists, etc. that he has on are always Christian. Talk about insulation!

This is the 3 part radio series:

Thanks for reading,
Randy

Hey Randy,

This is just a post to say welcome, and give a little bump, since I didn't see your post until just now.

So yeah... welcome! :)
