Why God Exists - Interview with Christian apologist and former atheist Tyler Vela

This is the second guest interview for Truthspresso!

I interview Tyler Vela about the age-old topic: Does God exist?

Tyler was raised an atheist until his atheist professor in a Metaphysics class in college discussed arguments for the existence of God. The challenge of the "moral argument" caused Tyler to investigate and eventually convert to Christianity.

In this interview, we raise and answer various philosophical and presuppositional arguments about the existence of God.

We also consider the issue of miracles and animals that talked in the Bible.

We also examine the arguments about God's existence from the claims of the Bible itself and how to define a "fool."



Tyler Vela studied Philosophy and English at Sonoma State University in California.

He earned a Bachelor of Arts in Biblical and Theological Studies at Moody Bible Institute.

He is pursuing a Masters in Biblical Studies at Reformed Theological Seminary.

He is the author of Measuring McAfee: Why One Atheist's Attempt to Disprove Christianity Misses the Mark.
