RE: Matt Dillahunty vs Sye Ten Bruggencate
I literally don't have enough time in the day. My current playlist backlog is 34 hours, and that number has been increasing by about half an hour to an hour per week. An extra half hour per week I would likely be able to fit in, but I'm seeking weeks on dogma debate with greater than four hours of content. During a normal working week I have roughly 6 hours total of listening time to spare (mostly driving time). I can't displace 2/3 of my podcast time so easily.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

Have you ever had a thought of your own other than crying about how fucked up your life is, and parroting others views ? Your game is obvious, but you have managed to con some in here..... fuck off you cunt. Drinking Beverage

I think you replied to the wrong comment... Drinking Beverage

...It almost seems like you want me to be that way.

Re: Matt Dillahunty vs Sye Ten Bruggencate
I watched it a few gleeful hours ago.

I thought Sye was a joke prior with his faulty question leading website and other debates.

I think less of him now. Once he gets away from his pleasured arguments, he backs down to the one canned response of God without context. I don't see the point in any debates of this nature existing without asking that, do you believe your position can be changed. That should be at the beginning to acknowledge how dishonestly unreasonable they behave.

RE: Matt Dillahunty vs Sye Ten Bruggencate
Sye said he can't be wrong about the things he know, only what he thinks he knows.


Uh huh. So how do you know that what you know is what you actually know and not only what you think you know?

What if his belief in god is only what he thinks he knows (brain in a vat) and not what he actually knows? I noticed that According to Sye, the brain in the vat only applied to Matt. Why didn't Matt point out the ridiculous of this brain in a vat by asking Sye how he doesn't know he is a brain in a vat?

RE: Matt Dillahunty vs Sye Ten Bruggencate
I finally found time to listen to this. Sye demonstrated:

1) He can cherry pick Matt's videos just as well as he cherry picks Bible verses.
2) He can utter "you could just be a brain in a vat" anytime he can't give a real answer to a point that is raised.
3) He can completely overlook that fact that there is nothing he is claiming that can't also be dismissed by "you could just be a brain in a vat".
4) He can disqualify everything he has to say by admitting right in the debate that his approach can be summed up as "god exists and therefore everything else follows from that - so whatever it is, make it fit that paradigm".
5) He simply attacks his opponent's position without ever even attempting to explain why his is "better".

In addition, if I hadn't already lost all respect for him, I certainly would have when he said "we all deserve an eternity in hell". Dodgy Really? Deserve? I don't even think Hitler or similarly heinous people deserve an eternity of punishment, let alone hell. Yes, they deserve severe consequences, but not eternal hell fire.

Edit:
I should note that #4 is not a direct quote, but is my summary/interpretation of what he said.

@DonaldTrump, Patriotism is not honoring your flag no matter what your country/leader does. It's doing whatever it takes to make your country the best it can be as long as its not violent.

RE: Matt Dillahunty vs Sye Ten Bruggencate
I have always wondered if Presuppositionalist apologists just "presuppose" too much about things that their arguments are founded upon false axioms.
When people like Sye start using semantical arguments I know they are inherently stupid and worthless as a human being. Sort of how Muslims behave when you argue the exist of god with them and they truly believe circular logic is actual logic.

Muslim apologetics:

Axiom 1: Allah is god and exists thus the atheists hates Allah and is stupid.

That is Islam 101 pretty much.

Crazy you say?
Wouldn't a crazy man ask another man if he was crazy?! Hobo

Since this thread was referred to in [1] I'll necro it to add Matt's recently posted follow-up videos regarding the debate for anyone who might otherwise miss them:

Sye is a piece of shit, dishonest, intellectual stump of a human being.

Official ordained minister of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Please pm me with prayer requests to his noodly goodness. Remember, he boiled for your sins and loves you. Carbo Diem! RAmen.

Diddo only quotes this bullshit because it's a guaranteed easy reaction. He/she/it is just a stupid fucking attention whore.

This was actually back in the day when diddo disagreed with Sye.

Seems so long ago.
