RE: 52 Tips for Apologists
Aren't these points mutually exclusive? Consider

21. Remember that you have the truth.
35. Be humble; you know so little.
40. Admit it when you are wrong.

RE: 52 Tips for Apologists
If you're a smart apologist, you :

00.01 Ask yourself : What the fuck am I apologizing for ? It's it's "truth", I'm wasting my time, and maybe I should get a real job.
00.02 Don't ever mess with that Bucky dude over on TTA. Never.. Ever. Don't even think about it. Tongue

WLC, for example, once said that "[...] if the bones of Jesus were to be found, then he did not rise and Christianity would be false; but given the Spirit's witness we will never be justified in thinking that any bones discovered were those of Jesus." [sic] He and several other (Christian) apologetics are intellectually dishonest, because their beliefs influence their search for the truth. Many of them believe that they have already found the absolute truth (god) and that there's nothing you can say that will change their mind.

Let me see if I can find Hitchens' comment on truth. [Edit: Found it!]



Agreed. A True Believer would never question their stance. They start with The Truth so obviously anything you present that is counter to their position is going to be considered either illogical or Satanic...or both. Drinking Beverage

I regularly admit that I don't know stuff.

Excellent point. But, do you consider yourself an apologist?
