Reading Time: 3 minutes Christian apologists want us to accept their weak evidence for the divinity of Jesus. But why should we when Paul, John the Baptist, and even the disciples didn’t accept far more compelling evidence?
Reading Time: 11 minutes Back when I was Pentecostal, I found myself debating a pair of Southern Baptist guys. At the time, I believed in speaking in tongues, and I rejected the Trinity. They were deeply concerned that I’d go to hell over this huge deception, so they sought to persuade me I was wrong. I’m sure you’ll be […]
Reading Time: 9 minutes Christians demonstrate by their actions that they know perfectly well their god couldn’t manage to arrange a visit to the potty without them helping him every step of the way.
Reading Time: 7 minutes I can see why they worry at those three bits of pseudo-evidence like activated terriers. What they actually do have, they very logically never want to discuss with non-believers. Today, let me show you the real evidence Christians actually have — and how that works out for them.
Reading Time: 9 minutes Hi and welcome back! The never-ending fever-dream of 2021 continues apace. This past week, the world lost a comic genius when Jessica Walter passed away at 80 years of age. The actress long ago embedded herself in America’s consciousness with her iconic turns in Arrested Development and the animated series Archer — playing a classy, strong-willed, patently-dishonest, beyond-irreverent, […]
Reading Time: 6 minutes Hi and welcome back! For the past few days, we’ve been talking about a theme: the way toxic people cultivate a complete divorce between their beliefs and their behavior, between fantasy and reality. Indeed, a vast number of Christians consider themselves to be very logical people who only adopted their various (contradictory) opinions as a […]
Reading Time: 9 minutes Now, I want to show you why resurrections, as a concept, are so silly. Christians have never, ever, ever, ever demonstrated a single one of their miracle resurrection claims as true. Today, I’ll show you why they can’t, and why that matters.
Reading Time: 9 minutes Hi and welcome back! Yesterday, we checked out an apologetics outfit called Summit Ministries. They sell apologetics courses to teens and young adults. At the time, we examined their course offerings and pricing, determining them to be just the same old apologetics repackaged for kids today, da yoot. Today, I want to show you how […]
Reading Time: 15 minutes About a year ago, one of our dear and recently-departed commentariat members, Brad Feaker, asked a question. He posed it to the Christians who frequented Disqus’ also-recently-departed religion channel. And the Christians who received that question did not want to answer it: no way, no how. Today, I’ll show you what that question was–and then […]
Reading Time: 8 minutes For a few days now, I’ve been talking about the three major methods of persuasion I see Christians using. Today, though, let’s pull back. Those three methods differ dramatically from what might actually work–at least, on someone like me. I’ll show you what might work, and then–more importantly–show you why Christians don’t even bother trying that.
