I’ve posted several videos featuring Anthony Magnabosco walking up to strangers and chatting with them about their religious beliefs and how they came to them. It’s called Street Epistemology.

Christian apologists Dr. Tim McGrew and Tom Gilson recently told audiences that this approach was akin to playing the knockout game and amounted to “baseball bat-level engagement.” (They were referring specifically to Peter Boghossian‘s book.)

Both are ridiculous charges and Magnabosco shows you why in this video:

You can see it’s a completely dishonest distortion of what’s actually going on, and I have no doubt their Christian audiences just ate it up. Because that’s what they always seem to do when guys like this speak. They accept what they say without question.

And that’s the very thing the street epistemologists are trying to fix.
