Atheist Triumphalism

In this clip, a Christian apologist named Arthur runs into a fundamentalist atheist on his way to engage with others in sober rational discourse. Arthur politely asks the atheist to join him, but the atheist will have none of it. Instead, the atheist makes sure that all of the attention is given to him, makes some ridiculous demands of the apologist, and proceeds to argue with him. After making the first devastating point, the apologist asks the atheist to step aside, but the atheist denies any harm has befallen him. The apologist is forced to show the atheist what he …

Harold Camping Documentary

Harold Egbert Camping (born July 19, 1921) is a Christian radio broadcaster and president of Family Radio, a California-based religious broadcasting network that spans more than 150 outlets in the United States.

He has also used mathematical predictions applied to the Bible to predict dates for the end of the world. His current end times prediction is that the Rapture will be on May 21, 2011 and that God will completely destroy the Earth and the universe five months later on October 21.

Recent SBTS Resources

As some of you know, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky recently had Dr. Richard Bauckham and Dr. Greg Beale in for lectures on campus. I do not want to encourage anyone to be a couch potato, but here they are. As far as I know they are in order. Mike Licona also recently spoke at SBTS, but unfortunately it looks like his lecture was either not recorded or not posted. I have also included chapel messages from Dr. Mark Coppenger, Professor of Apologetics at SBTS and Dr. Gregory A. Wills, Professor of Church History at SBTS because …

SBTS Panel Discussion On Amusing Ourselves To Death

Years ago a friend gave me his copy of a book he had to read as a part of a class he was taking as a student at Liberty University. The book was Amusing Ourselves to Death by Neil Postman. Little did I know when he handed me a book being used at LU that it would have the impact on me that it did. The book has found a place in my “Top Ten” and I highly recommend it to you.

Imagine my excitement when I learned that there was going to be a panel discussion at SBTS regarding …

Glenn Beck – Mormon Historian?

I was listening to Glenn Beck’s show yesterday morning, and heard this discussion:

(Note: This may be a first, me linking to Media Matters – but they have the relevant clip – for some reason, it won’t let me post the video directly. If you’d prefer not to visit, my blog has it embedded.)

Here’s a transcript:
22:40: Glenn: “…the Dead Sea Scrolls, you know what they are? Stu, do you know what the Dead Sea Scrolls are?
Stu: Well, of course I do…
Glenn: Now, c’mon, most people don’t.
Stu: Well, I heard of them, I don’t really …

Short Break

In an effort to not undermine my apologetic or contradict what its conclusions entail I will be taking just a short break from posting here. While other contributors may post during this time it is unlikely that they will do so.

However, I am mostly letting you know about this because I will be periodically posting links to material that many of you have probably never seen before. Some of it will be in media format. So make sure to keep reading and I hope to return in several weeks to complete the many tasks I have left undone!
