Bringing it home. Debating Apologists on what counts.

The good news is that today’s apologists find their own core belief indefensible. This is leading to an attempt to draw the debate away from the many core logical absurdities found in the “gospel”, and to a focus on arguments absent from what has lead most of them to their faith. These are just a decoy. Any proposal of a spherical cube of gold can be immediately dismissed due to the impossibility of a spherical cube, evidence of gold not withstanding. In like manner, any proposal of the logically impossible Christian god can be dismissed based on the impossibility of that god, in spite of proffered evidence of “changed lives” or “fine tuning” or perceived weaknesses in evolutionary theory or the need for “objective purpose”. Whatever gods may exist, the logically impossible god of the Bible is disqualified as a candidate due to his logical incoherence. Let’s avoid the intentional distractors, and bring the argument home to the apologists, smack-dab in their incoherent backyard of redemption.

  1. Ironically, you keep talking about logic, but you sound so angry, I doubt very much that logic is at the core of your problems with faith.

    • Interestingly, apologetics is becoming more and more a simple evasion of the arguments; the bald assertion that the opposition is angry, or is “upset with god” in some way. This is definitely good to see. If they had actual arguments, they would use them.
