Botched Response to The Empty Tomb

(This article was written in 2005 or 2006, but sat in my Drafts folder while I was inactive.)Robert M. Price and I are the co-authors of a skeptical anthology on the alleged historicity of the resurrection of Jesus entitled The Empty Tomb: Jesus Beyond the Grave. Steve Hays recently wrote a book-length rebuttal to our book entitled, This Joyful Eastertide. When I first heard about this rebuttal, I have to confess I skipped directly to Hays' rebuttal to my chapter to read what Hays had to write. … [Read more...]

Flanagan’s Response to Me (Re: Jerry Coyne on Explaining Morality)

Matthew Flanagan has written a response to my post on Jerry Coyne and explaining morality. I am quoting his response in its entirety, with Flannagan's permission. Hi Jeffery, I tried posting this on your site but couldn’t, feel free to do so. You write: ”I suspect that C.S. Lewis’ moral argument for God’s existence is probably much more influential among the average reader of USA Today than the work of Robert Adams. And Lewis does appeal to a variety of moral phenomena in in Mere Christianity as … [Read more...]

Craig’s “Altar Calls”

(This is an old post from my archives, originally written around 2006.)I was watching the video of Craig's old debate with Henry Morgentaler, and the altar call at the end of his first rebuttal struck me. Craig invited Morgentaler to become a Christian. This isn't the first time he's done this; he did the same thing to Paul Kurtz when they debated.This led me to ask half-seriously, "What if Craig's opponent did the same thing to him?" For example, in the atheist's conclusion of their first … [Read more...]

Further Evidence of the Lack of Civil Discourse: This Time a Theistic Example

Apparently there's a new anti-atheist book out called The God Haters: Angry Atheists, Shallow Scholars, Silly Scientists, Pagan Preachers, and Embattled Evolutionists Declare War on Christians by Don Boys. To say that this book is an example of "unfriendly theism" appears to be a massive understatement.I always chuckle when a complete stranger tells me that I hate God, as if I could hate something I don't think exists. (A related idea is that atheists are "threatened by God" -- see here.) But … [Read more...]
