New blogalog

Had a guy email me yesterday asking if I’d revive the blogalog idea after the cl disaster.  I’m willing to give it another go.  His name is John Henry, which is kinda neat because I have a dear friend back in Springfield, MO named John Henry.  Small world, eh? Anyway, here’s his first email.  Mine [Read More…]

Religion of love, amirite???

Sometimes I see the most synchronously hilarious and depressing things on facebook.  This was left on the facebook page of a friend of mine. Apparently, debating something makes it true.  I wonder if Christians arguing against a godless universe makes it true.  That’s just a mystery.  Can someone in the comments start an argument about [Read More…]

More from Richard Carrier

Richard Carrier has yet another rebuttal to Bart Ehrman posted.  More of the same.  Solid, substantive, with air-tight arguments.  Typical Carrier. Also, it links to all of Ehrman’s replies so that readers can easily go there and make sure Ehrman says what Carriers says he says.  I recently received a comment from JesseW saying that [Read More…]

Ehrman gets NAILED by Richard Carrier

So first, the back story.  A few weeks ago Bart Ehrman wrote an article for the Huffington Post dogging on historians who think Jesus was just a mythic figure, never even a real, ungodly person.  Richard Carrier caught wind of it and proceeded to go positively hulk on Ehrman.  Reports suggest that Ehrman walked funny [Read More…]

Blogalog phase 1

Cl has graciously accepted my invitation to blogalog.  Here is how it has begun. After he volunteered and I accepted I wrote… If we’re doing the existence of god, you wanna go first? Cl responded… I was just thinking about that. Why don’t we try thinking outside the box a little bit? It’s just that, [Read More…]

Looking for a blogalog participant

I don’t generally wade into the comment to rebut people.  If I think something needs to be said, I’ll drag their comment into a blog post and go to town. However, I realize I’ve not been doing as much back-and-forth as I used to with believers and that needs to stop.  So, I’m throwing out [Read More…]

Day of comments #4: The value of human life

I did a post earlier featuring a comment by Icy Cantu.  Icy didn’t feel moved to provide evidence for why Christianity is true, but he did threaten everybody who didn’t believe the same way he did.  I pointed that out. Icy came back with more of the same. I live in a farming community. If [Read More…]

Day of comments #3: …Free will?

Here’s another one from Rebekah.  I’m not sure what to say. That is true but only if one attributes all types of “bad” things to God. Instead of trying to comprehend the value of free volition. Your right to choose of which you obviously hold highly. The only issue is does “God” do all of [Read More…]

Comment #2: Hell

Next up on day of comments is this gem from Icy Cantu. You have no idea what you are rejecting. You spit upon God’s mercy and grace that was paid for through the death of His only-begotten Son. When you expire, or when He returns (whichever comes first) it will be too late to say [Read More…]

Comment #1: Tone

Today is going to be a day of ‘interesting’ comments from yesterday.  This one comes from Rebekah. again your attitudes prove the point perfectly… the majority of Christians don’t take this attitude at all. There are much worse persecutions out there but face it seriously you have become as judgemental and snobbish as those christians [Read More…]
