Oil and Water

Craig Cobb, a white supremacist, finds out he is “14% Sub-Saharan African” on live television. It is hilarious that his response is “oil and water doesn’t mix” because that is just the kicker, he is living proof his worldview cannot account for the way the world really is, even his own existence.

Internet Skeptics and Bart Erhman

Justin Taylor points out an interesting point in the introduction of Bart Erhman’s book Did Jesus Exist? where Dr. Erhman was surprised people were using his work (even to the extent of misquoting him) to argue that Jesus didn’t exist.
