Debate?
Does anyone here actively debate against theists?

My cousin hosts a christian radio show, is a presuppositional apologetic pastor and I'd like to hear someone call in and destroy his arguments.

Smile

Seriously.

I can't see anything tp be gained. They aren't interested in debate or discussion.

Sad but true.

For those who don't mind it is fun. I don't do it myself because radio and TV is always geared to the host and they are the ringmaster. If they are doing it right(as far as putting on a show) they set you up as the caller for a "ah ha, gotcha" moment.

What the host will do when they know you have the goods on them will pot down your mic or cut you off, then have the last word.

I prefer text debates because they can't run and hide or shut down the thread unless they are a mod.

Most theists don't like debating me because I don't like going down their yellow brick road and like to cut to the chase. Putting the cart before the horse is what they do and they make excuses as to why they are not retrofiting after the fact when they haven't even established the viability of a god being possible in the first place even before you get to the first word of their comic book.

Out of curiosity, what is the name of your cousin's show? Also, hope you live in a warm climate. Kilts can get awfully breezy.

When the central figure of his argument can be replaced with a pink fluffy unicorn and it doesn't change the argument, then there is really nothing to debate.

Seriously.

If the participants in a debate are ultra dogmatic, they usually end up abusing one another.
The best we can hope for is to learn something, not push our own brand of egocentricity down the other party's throat.
If we feel categorically RIGHT, let's just bask in our glory.
