Episode 84 – Miracles with Brian Blais


Episode 84 Miracles.

We welcome returning guest Brian Blais to talk about miracles. Andrew gives an update on the failed prayer to heal his eyesight, and towards the end of the show, she have a special appearance by David from Skeptics and Seekers.

For further discussion regarding the shoe on the roof NDE story that we raise and Gary Habermas likes to promote see the digital gnosis youtube video in link 1. It’s a very long video and they talk about a lot of cases, including this one, including the detail that one of the accounts is 4th hand and 7 years later. Something that Gary Habermas fails to mention.
