On January 30, 2009 Joel McDurmon posted an article on the American Vision website regarding his attendance at my debate with Bart Ehrman on January 21 that was held at the Airport Sheraton in Ft.

An Overview of My Debate

I was riding my bicycle up South Mountain, a 7 mile long ascent with portions hitting a 12% grade. I was listening to an interview on Issues Etc., and the guest was Bart Ehrman. Ehrman had burst onto the textual critical scene with his 1993 work, The Orthodox Corruption of Scripture. His new book, Misquoting Jesus, was a popularization of much of what was in the earlier, scholarly work, along with general information about the history of textual criticism, interwoven with Ehrman’s conclusions.

Eviscerating Evolution: Part 3

Patience and more patience are your watchwords since you know that he’s (she’s) the semi-naïve, hyper-indoctrinated victim of humanist-centered schemes. (And be more kind than necessary.

Eviscerating Evolution: Part 2

Presuppositional apologetics (PA) is a powerful tool and arguably the best one going for evangelizing (see Part 1), among others, two special groups. Hard-core unbelievers super-secularized, "sure hope he actually is a Christian," teenager. Polls show that thousands of young public-schooled church-goers are weak in the faith. For youth who seem solid, even one semester at Humanist State U is often all it takes to cut down their faith for years if not forever. But when a program (of what can be very enjoyable) parent-child teamwork is applied at home in the honing of PA skills, it nearly guarantees they won’t fall between the cracks at Secular U.

Atheists Need You to be Ignorant

One way to change worldview perceptions is to keep people ignorant. The public schools have done a great job in shifting worldview thinking from theism to humanism right under the noses of parents who extol the virtues of America’s government education system. Consider how textbooks handle the subject of religion in the founding of America. One elementary school social studies book has thirty pages of material "on the Pilgrims," Paul Vitz writes, "including the first Thanksgiving. But there is not one word (or image) that referred to religion as even a part of the Pilgrims’" life.
