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.

Seriously.


After briefly skimming this blog page, I regret to inform you that your cousin is incurably, irrevocably, ain't-no-fixin'-this-shit batshit crazy.

Sorry, friend.

A huge part of his problem is he can't stop mixing up terms and definitions. If one of his core complaints about atheists are that they believe in evolution and the big bang, nothing else he says after that is going to make any sense. It would make as much sense for me to say that you can't discuss religion with a theist because they deny climate change (a statement that is both false and a non sequitur).

Now, he at least starts to get to criticisms that could lead to discussion by talking about how atheists don't believe the word of God (obviously, but at least it is consistent with the definition of atheism). Sadly, it kind of falls apart when he assumes that the word of God is correct a priori and assumes this makes atheists wrong.

So, yeah, not much actual content in that blog. Just him saying "don't coddle atheists because [lies and logical fallacies]".

RE: Debate?
@ the OP. Has anyone ever

1. point out that he can't just presuppose that God exists, but that he must rather provide some evidence of His existence?

2. asked if he has heard of Russel's teapot?

RE: Debate?
Public, oral debates, many times, boil down to how the orator comes across. It's all about showmanship and charisma. That's why I prefer posted debates.
