Wise words from Rabbi Moshe Averick

From Nonsense of a High Order: The Confused World of Modern Atheism:
It is my opinion that the reality of the Creator, or the existence of God, is a truth that is quite accessible. Although the ideas that I will present may require careful analysis and contemplation, they are not particularly complicated or difficult. Most can be understood by an intelligent and inquisitive high school senior. This is not necessarily a reflection of an individual’s native intelligence; proper analysis of an abstract or philosophical concept is a skill he or she may never have acquired. Regarding this, I hope I have presented my ideas in a clear enough fashion that newcomers will be able to follow.
There is a second challenging factor that is much more serious ad cuts to the core of the essential nature of a human being. Quite simply, it is the desire for truth. If people have not assigned “truth” a top slot on their list of priorities, it does not matter what I said to them and what evidence is presented. … (pp. 24–25)
Moshe Averick … has taught theology, spirituality and religious philosophy for nearly 30 years. Many of his students have gone on to become educators and rabbinic leaders in North America, England, and Israel. He is known for his singular ability to explain complex topics in clear, understandable language and – to borrow the description of one University of Chicago-trained philosopher of science – his “wicked” sense of humor.
