Mental Gymnastics....
Using some of the "refuting the Bible" stuff from here, I raised the question of how Judas died and my friend just did incredible mental gymnastics to make both be true. I pointed out the child eating thing from the atrocities section and she said "well it's only a possibility, probably didn't actually happen", I merely questioned why it should even be a remote possibility.
Heaven ascension also not working, neither Jesus' (he can appear in multiple places is her explanation) or Enoch's (it was a different method and purpose, wtf?)... reminds me of the "Fish Sticks" episode of South Park

Anyone else have this problem? I'm not trying to turn her into an atheist overnight, merely plant the seeds...but she keeps mental gymanstics..ing everything....christians are certainly good at that, I'll give them that.
