Have you heard the story of True Reason? It’s the tale of a book that went from conception to completion in just seventy-seven days; a story that includes both uncommon cooperation and odd sorts of conflict, with God’s hand obviously on it at every step. The surprises continue all the way through to the second edition, just released […]
My post on The Argument From Reason generated considerable discussion but not nearly enough understanding. I’m going to take another run at explaining those things here, since I think some of the blame is mine for not being clear enough as to what the argument was intended to do. What The argument intends to do […]
True Reason: Confronting the Irrationality of the New Atheism is coming out any day now! Tomorrow at 4 pm EST I’ll be talking with Janet Mefferd about this book, a newly revised look at Christian rationality, as opposed to New Atheist irrationality. Listen in with us!
I wrote this in a comment directed to someone who had tried to dispute Christianity, but who stated it in a form that no one believes it. Here I’ll put it forth as a general principle. Please hold me accountable to it, as I will also do with you. This is the debater’s freedom and […]

TFBW’s assessment of the Boghossifying project in my earlier post seems accurate. If Boghossian is correct, Abe cannot have veridical evidence for his faith. So let’s parse this out a little further: IF Abe has faith, and IF Boghossian’s substitutions are accurate, THEN we know Abe has no (veridical) evidence for his faith. We can […]
Happy New Year, James Lindsay. I want to take this opportunity to assess your review of my book on Boghossian, which he described as “genius;” a great “demolition of (Christian) faith.” What I want to do here is to see whether you’ve done as any good Boghossianite should do, and backed up your claims with […]
Someone sent an email my way via Ratio Christi’s contact page, offering this tidbit of wisdom: Why do you flatter yourself by believing that Peter Boghossian would waste his time with your nonsense? You are not even in the same league. This is an excellent corollary to the fact that Dawkins will not debate creationists. […]
