    Counter-Apologetics: Part 1

    in Education

    Merriam Webster defines the word apologetics as:


    1)  systematic argumentative discourse in defense (as of a doctrine)
    2)  a branch of theology devoted to the defense of the divine origin and authority of Christianity


    And apologists are everywhere, using lofty language and theological acrobatics to defend belief systems which can't otherwise be defended.  


    This two-part podcast talks about many prominent apologists and their arguments, addressing many of the most commonly heard apologetic claims and examining those claims logically, rationally, morally and against the evidence.

    This episode is a discussion between several experience debaters: Matt Dillahunty, Tracie Harris and AronRa.  Next week's show will be fully dedicated to listener calls with comments and questions (podcast@thethinkingatheist.com)

    The Problem of Evil: Counter Apologetics

    in Religion

    If there is an argument against god, it is the problem of evil.  Even believers admit this is the strongest argument against god, so that must be so.  If it is, why hasn't it convinced all the believers?


    Let's talk about the answers to the problem of evil and why I think they fail.  This is counter apologetics - why I snort and retort!


    Plus your calls.


    Logically, that means awesomeness!

    Episode 12: Counter-Apologetics

    in Atheism

    I figure it's time to get to it.  Counter-apologetics.  What do atheists have to say when faced with the arguments we get from believers?  How do we respond to the most common arguments?  Is there even a point to discussing it?
    I figure I'll start with the end:  TAG, or the transcendental argument for god, or presupposition.  It's the end-game argument, the fall-back, the fail-safe.  Or is it just a carpet bomb of nonsense?
    There's no way I'll cover all of TAG in 30 minutes, but let's give it a shot.
     
    Plus your calls, which would make this episode epic.
