I don't know much about it, particularly what distinguishes one form of apologetics from the other, at least in regards to why one form is anymore annoying than the other. When you posted this, I had to look it up in wikipedia.

I think I have an idea of what you're referring to. But I'm not sure why it's any more irritating than any other form of Christian apologetics?

You're right. It is one and the same, just worded differently.

All apologetics are obviously presuppositional. Otherwise they wouldn't need to apologize for the funny logic.

No cock punch required. Drinking Beverage

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

This is assuming that the presuppositionalist is a male.
If not, there's always;

RE: Would you cock punch a presuppositional apologist
Tomasia. While technically it could be argued that all apologetics are presuppositional perhaps the most striking feature of presups is the assertion that every one even atheists know that god exists. I believe that there are differences within christian apologetics otherwise why bother categorizing them with a name. To me to say otherwise is like saying there's no difference between a roller skate and a Lamborghini because they both have 4 wheels. I started this thread after listening to the debate between Matt Dillahunty and Sye Tenbruggencate during which I nearly facepalmed myself into intensive care, I admit it's possible I'm totally wrong as i am not an academic but however you cut it apologists are uber irritating and this is supposed to be a humorous thread just a bit of fun a way to vent steam but I guess there are always going to be those who wish to score points and nitpick that's the nature of forums and just how things are.

Presuppositional apologetics is all fine and dandy when you're talking to other believers. If everyone in the discussion assumes God exists a priori, then you can move past that, and start discussing other things. Those things will presuppose God's existence.

Now, if you're not talking to believers, presuppositional apologetics are useless to them. This goes doubly true when trying to use them to prove God (yes, I've seen this in action more than once). It's blatant circular reasoning*. It doesn't mean it's wrong, but it certainly means it's not compelling.


* Fun fact: I once had someone ask me on Facebook "what's wrong with circular reasoning?" after I shot down his argument.

Every time I hear Sye's name I cringe a little inside expecting the forums #1 Sye supporter/cock sucker to show up like using his name is a kinda bat signal for that asshat. *shudder*

Anyway on topic:

No I would not INSTIGATE the use of force on anyone...however if I ever found myself in a debate with Sye specifically I would do my damnedest, my absolute damnedest, to troll that stupid shitbird to the point he tries to take a swing at me.

Oh what a lovely day!

I'm not as refined as some of you.

He's getting cock punched, and while I'm at it, Wendy Wright is getting that arrogant smug slapped off her stupid face.

Or maybe take Wendy Wright by the ankles and beat Sye Bruggencate to death with her? Consider

It's the perfect crime - it would be chalked up as a pedestrian accident. Yes
