Dan Barker throws down.

In a debate with Kyle Butt, Dan Barker listens to Kyle say that Hitler was an atheistic communist calmly, and then destroys him.  The fun starts at about 1:30.

In Kyle’s defense, at 8:08 he has the integrity to admit he was wrong.  But then he goes on to assert essentially that Hitler was not a true Christian.  And then comes all the quote mining – the type that would make any experienced debater begin to drool in anticipation of their turn to rebut.

    That’s staggeringly moving the goalposts.

    If Hitler was a Muslim, he wouldn’t be a “true Christian”, but guess what? He wouldn’t be an atheist either.

    Atheist != Not exactly the exactingly exactly exact type of Christian that the Christian things is exactly correct.

      And then he goes on at the end to blather about abortion. I couldn’t figure out what that was about or how it connected to anything previous.

        You have to give them some credit. It’s not easy to string together sequences of words into intelligible sentences. They’ll get around to coherent arguments… give it time.

            They just need to keep backpedaling until the Rapture takes them all away…

    True Christian – defined – someone who believes the exact same thing I believe, and doesn’t do things I don’t like.

    Atheist – defined – someone who does things that are not good.

    I think what we need are new definitions, ones that have some basis in reality. And we need to clone Dan Barker. We definitely need more of him.
