Be careful watching this video by June Hunt of Hope for the Heart. It’s gonna change your mind about that whole “atheism” thing:
Yep. Convinced me. I’d never ever ever ever heard that argument before.
Time to burn this website and turn my life around.
I appreciate how Jason Boyett, a Christian, is *facepalming* this whole thing:
… it occurs to me that, using the same logic, the same isn’t-your-knowledge-pretty-limited? circle-drawing approach would be just as effective in forcing a Christian to consider that Allah could be the true god and Islam the one true religion. Because couldn’t some form of truth exist outside that which think we know?
It could also force us to admit that Norse mythology could an accurate worldview. Or that Joseph Smith and his Mormon faith were true. Or that Mictlantecuhtli, the skeletal Aztec god of death who wears a necklace of human eyeballs, could possible exist in a horrible afterlife somewhere outside our limited range of knowledge.
Know any Christians who are just a few quick questions away from making those leaps? Me neither. Then why do we expect atheists to be ready to do the same?
We’ve heard it all before. Evangelists don’t have any new tactics and the scripts they follow are cringe-worthy. Someone actually thought that would work!
How weak to you have to be to fall for such awful logic…?
Side note: As she held up that paper with a giant circle on it, I wanted to be right there next to her, so I could draw some noodly appendages on it.
