How Many Logical Fallacies Can You Spot in the Words of This Christian Apologist?

How do Christian apologists like Ravi Zacharias spin logic to suit their needs?

achilleshoplite compiled a series of his statements in the video below and dares you to spot the fallacies:

Without even trying, I heard Pascal’s Wager, the claim that atheists are hateful and can’t possibly have any meaning in life, the idea that atheists can never know what is good or evil, Reductio ad Hitlerum, a false understanding of what science is (apparently evolution isn’t on the list), faulty math, and fancy words (oooh, quantum!)…

I’m pretty convinced the only reason people hold Zacharias in high esteem is because he *sounds* authoritative. His accent, his cadence, his gestures — they all just make him appear to know what he’s talking about, when rebuttals to his statements could be found with the simplest of Google searches.
