Apolegetics: You’re Doing It Wrong!

June 5, 2013

Apologetics has always struck me as an ironic Christian enterprise. On the one hand, “No one can say Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit.” (faith) That is, the metaphysical speculations of faith require… a leap of faith and the Holy Spirit.

However, on the other hand, persons socialized into Enlightenment thinking try to “prove” beyond a reasonable doubt why their faith is true (rationalism, empiricism, whatever you want to call it). That is, faith is not required because knowledge has made it unnecessary.

There is better and worse non-faith apologetics. One of the worst examples ever is Ray Comfort’s delusional and ignorant rant about bananas:

If you don’t know why Comfort is absolutely, ignorantly talking out of his ass in the above video, and so impossibly full of crap, then watch this.

But people like Comfort inspire dilettante thinkers to “prove” their faith as real.

Enter Dan Delzell

Dan Delzell

Apparently, Mr. Delzell went to the Harold Camping Seminary of Mathematical and Historical Stupidity. He recently authored a piece titled, The Mathematical Proof for Christianity Is Irrefutable, that is so poorly conceived, so incredibly ignorant of textual development or historical consciousness, so unaware of hot memory or retrojective remembering, so full of weak arguments, so… well you get the point.

It’s bad. Real bad.

I’m not going to take the time to point out all of the flaws (actually, I don’t have that much time!), but if you want to lose some IQ points, read it and be horrified at the stupidity.

    Thanks for helping me waste my time, Scott! “You would have to be blind to miss it” Blind. Captain Barth to the rescue, please

    Oh Dan Dezell… I’ve read some of his stuff in the past. Full of generalizations and stereotypes. Took me three months to recover from the awful post.

    Apologetic s. Always be prepared to give an answer to the hope that ls within you.
    Answer. The spirit of God testifies to my spirit. Romans 8-16. Not much else is needed really. And as well apologetic s does not mean a convincing argument.

    If there is a God, I hope on the last day this turd gets to be Azazel’s plaything.
