Sye TenBruggencate vs. Justin Scheiber: Complete Transcript and Informal "Debate" Recording

Sye TenBruggencate of www.proofthatgodexists.org claims that his recent discussion/informal “debate” with Justin Scheiber of www.yahweh-or-myweh.blogspot.com was heavily edited with Justin’s long pauses taken out as well to make it seem as though he answered faster. Sye contends that it was not just “rabbit trails” that were taken out, but that the whole feel of certain parts of the debate was changed. Sye claims that he is a little surprised that Justin did this and trusts that others will find that the edits were extremely biased as well.

Sye believes it is clear from the edits that Justin was just trying to make himself look better and holds that the transcript of the debate will show this. According to Sye, the edits were blatant and will be quite embarrassing for Justin. The discussion, says Sye, was altered for reasons other than what Justin has offered. Sye explains that he does not wish to make Justin the “poster boy for atheistic deception,” but admits that Justin was caught with his “hand in the cookie jar.”

Sye has calculated that 5 minutes and 25 seconds of a 53 minute show were cut in Justin’s version of the discussion.

(The above is quoted and paraphrased from Sye’s comments found here.)
