Challenge Response: Idea of God is Contradictory

Posted: August 18, 2011 by Brett Kunkle in God is Real, Weekly Challenge

Here’s my response to this week’s challenge:

Comments
  1. Your son was born on the same day I became unemployed. Coincidence?

  2. Sam Harper says:

    Brett, if you haven’t already, you should submit your video as a video response to Kathleen’s video. Then more people will see it, including Kathleen. Just a suggestion.

  3. Philip Motes says:

    Wow. She’s really sticking by her guns with this one. I wonder if she’ll ever humbly concede that her argument has been refuted.

    • Sam Harper says:

      Philip have you seen the web page: godgone.com? The whole web page is dedicated to this one argument. That’s the only thing the web page is about. So she apparently thinks very highly of this argument.

      • Philip Motes says:

        Lol nope, I haven’t had a chance to check that one out yet; I’ve been too busy mulling over whywontgodhealamputees.com. :)

      • Philip Motes says:

        By the way, I must add my compliments to you for your killer refutation of this argument. You have a real gift for meticulously breaking down arguments and giving clear and concise explanations. Have you ever considered writing a book?

      • Sam Harper says:

        Thanks Philip. I’ve always wanted to write a book, but I doubt anybody would publish it. You gotta have credentials!

  4. Doug Horton says:

    Thanks for the kind words, Brett.

    BTW – You can see the conversation continued on the YouTube comments. I just returned to it today and see that Lynne wanted a definition of “self-existent” so I copied the definition from the dictionary. I didn’t edit it in any way, but the definition clearly ended with the statement that self-existence was an attribute peculiar to God. :-)

    When the debate deteriorates to redefining words, I think the discussion is over. I present the dictionary definition and try to leave peaceably.
