John Loftus and the Whole Kit and Caboodle

Reading Time: 4 minutes I have to thank John Loftus (author, ex-minister and owner of the great Debunking Christianity blog) for giving me a leg up in the blogging world when, running a tiny independent version of the A Tippling Philosopher blog as I was, he allowed me to write for him there.

William Lane Craig Misrepresents and Strawmans CA on His Podcast, Denying Science

Reading Time: 2 minutes William Lane Craig and his obsequious co-host recently slammed Counter-Apologist and his criticisms of Craig’s use of time and the Kalam, in his recent podcast.

Apologist Knechtle owned in debate with Beahan

Reading Time: < 1 minute SO this is a few years old now, but this debate is great. Jeremy Beahan, presenter on Reasonable Doubts podcast and radio show, calmly deconstructs every argument this rather smarmy apologist gives. I enjoyed listening to this one, and I hope to hear Beahan do more debates. Good stuff.
