Humanism

Seeking advice for countering a philosophical approach to "proving" God's existence

On my podcast we recently spoke with someone who works for the Southern Evangelical Seminary in Charlotte, NC. They claim to "defend the faith" using rationality.

To me, their argument boils down to "using the language and tools of philosophy, we can sufficiently reason the existence of an immaterial God. Since we can reason that there must be an immaterial God, the tools of science cannot be used in an argument for or against the existence of such a God since they are only applicable to the material world."

The problem with talking with these people is that they are highly educated and trained in the tools of philosophical dialogue. They can counter almost any reasonable assertion against their argument and refuse to give any ground to science or evidence.

I am wondering if anyone here is familiar with their line of reasoning and knows how to counter it using their own tools? I know their argumentation is not new and there must be a counter out there somewhere - any links or resources would be appreciated.

For more familiarity with their argument: Dr. Richard Howe's debate against Micheal Shermer Interview with Adam Tucker on my podcast Citizen:Earth

Q: If you could nominate any random assortment of short works or writings (essays, poems, book-excerpts...anything!) for a 'Humanist Anthology' of sorts, what would you chose, and why?

The idea recently struck me (in the shower of all places) that perhaps it might be a good idea to compile a collection of various/miscellaneous writings on living an ethical and meaningful life--an 'Anthology of Humanism' or, more broadly speaking, 'of Life', if you will--that I could take with me whenever I go travelling abroad or find myself in need of guidance here at home (or anywhere for that matter), as well as perhaps to share with others I may meet, or to pass on to my children (if ever I should have any). Any suggestions you may have would tremendously be appreciated; my own purposes aside, I cannot but imagine that any if not all recommendations you may have would doubtless be beneficial to all those who should stumble across this post. I sincerely look forward to hearing from you r/humanism, cheers! - OP
