"The Law of causality, which is the fundamental principle of science establishes premise one as true. Without the Law of Causality, science would be rendered impossible. Science is a search for causes. If we know anything about reality, it is that things don't happen without a cause.

If you put quotation marks around a block of text, Google is pretty good at finding it. Especially in forums.


ButwaitWHAT? Isn't there a Forum Rulez about plagiarizing?

This is Hector Avalos (Yes, that Hector Avalos) posting on the blog of John W. Loftus (yes, that John W. Loftus) on how Craig is himself a selective supernaturalist.

W. L. Craig as a Pick-and-Choose Supernaturalist: A Response to Travis James Campbell

Hector Avalos @ Debunking Christianity Wrote:About a year ago, I began a series of responses to Dr. Travis Campbell, who wrote a critique (“Avalos contra Craig” = ACC) of my chapter on the historical Jesus in The End of Biblical Studies. See abbreviated Google version of the book.

Three posts were planned to address three issues that I had raised about William Lane Craig’s defense of the historicity of the resurrection. As Campbell (ACC, p. 290) summarizes my arguments:

A. Craig has misused C. Behan McCullagh’s criteria [for the resurrection];
B. a case can be made for the apparitions of Mary using McCullagh’s criteria (thus, we have a disproof by counterexample); and
C. Craig is a selective supernaturalist.


I addressed the first issue here. The second issue is addressed here.

The debate between myself and W. L. Craig is found here.

This post discusses how Craig is a selective supernaturalist insofar as his attack on methodological naturalism betrays an appeal to supernaturalism only for events he favors and not because of the application of some consistent criterion.

There's a LOT of "selective" in JEW's shit. It could make for an interesting detailed analysis for dessert...

....and BTW, who was the asshole that threw out the so-called "Taxicab 'fallacy'"...?

There must be something neurologically wrong with the guy. He contradicted himself, as pointed out above. Now he throws it out again. Dude must enjoy making a fool of himself.

He's a twit Rolleyes God... Dodgy He's fallen into that annoying pattern of "if I repeat myself often enough and accuse my opponent of not answering my points and making strawmen and and and... then I WIN". Fucken douchebag. He's not in the slightest interested in truth, all he cares about is "winning".

Oh, like materialism.

If you disagree then you affirm things can come into existence without a cause.

Yeah cuz we all know "our experience" demonstrated Relativity (no absolute space-time), Uncertainty, the "Double-Split" in Physics, Dirac's math, and ever other "counter-intuitive" discovery ever by the human race to be false.
