Seriously, has it really come down to this? Theists can't argue cohesively on the internet so they resort to petty tactics like this? I'm not a psychologist in any way (and neither is Christian the Christian), but it's funny how this guy acts like an armchair psychologist in a smug matter by slandering an entire group of people just because he has a disagreement with them on religion. In this video, I try to address his claims within the video as well as point out where he's cherry-picking.<br /> <br /> References/Sources:<br /> Bering, Jesse M. (2002).

Many Christians do this, and don't see the logical fallacy of first having to accept God's existence in the first place in order to believe in him.<br /> <br /> This video is made up of examples in the Ham/Nye debate in which Ken Ham states numerous times that he starts his belief with a belief that can't be questioned. And he's supposed to be the intellectually honest one?

If there is no God, why is there anything at all?<br /> 2. Where is the evidence that life could have begun without intelligent interference?<br /> 3. How can evolution explain features of irreducible complexity apart from intelligent intervention?<br /> 4. How can the evolutionary model be true since the fossil record clearly shows most major groups emerging at the same time?<br /> 5. If there is no objective standard of right or wrong, how can anything be wrong?<br /> 6. So which is the logically defensible position?—that matter eternally existed (or came into existence by itself for no reason), and then by itself arranged itself into extraordinarily complex living systems including not only mechanisms but huge amounts of information needed for life to function against everything observed in real science? Or that an eternal self existing being with infinite intelligence, created life and the information systems necessary for life to exist, agreeing with real science?<br /> 7.How can natural selection produce something that is a prerequisite for natural selection to operate?<br /> 8. If scientists almost totally accept that a signal from outer space containing information that could be interpreted as a string of prime numbers would be proof of extraterrestrial intelligence, why would they not accept that the information coding in the nucleus of the simplest cells dna which is equivalent to the information in a full set of encyclopedia Britannica was the result of intelligence?<br /> 9. What if God is real as described in the bible and you have to stand before him and give an account for your life? Do you have a list of reasons for why you never accepted Him? Under close scrutiny, will those reasons betray the fact that you don't want to believe and will stick with anything that sounds good rather than look into it too seriously.<br /> 10. If I answered all your objections to your satisfaction, would you submit your life to Jesus or recognize God as your creator?<br /> <br /> Read my webcomic: <a href="http://kanirabaxter.comicgenesis.com/">http://kanirabaxter.comicgenesis.com/</a><br /> Visit the BionicDance store: <a href="http://www.zazzle.com/bionicdance/">http://www.zazzle.com/bionicdance/</a><br /> Twitter: <a href="http://twitter.com/BionicDance">http://twitter.com/BionicDance</a><br /> "The A-Word" Podcast: <a href="http://theaword.podomatic.com/">http://theaword.podomatic.com/</a>
