Here’s my response to this week’s challenge:
Your son was born on the same day I became unemployed. Coincidence?
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.
Sam, done. Thanks for the great idea! You should also direct her to your blog post.
I did. I don’t know if she’ll read it or not, though.
Looks like Lynne Atwater, the psychologist that Kathleen said developed this argument, responded to my YouTube video: http://www.youtube.com/all_comments?v=9dIm2lGy4RA. Lynne provided her e-mail address, so you ought to send your blog post to her: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks Brett. I don’t want to come across as being pushy, so I’m going to wait a while to see if she reacts to my blog. If not, I may email her and ask her if she had a chance to look at it, and send her a link.
Sam, just noticed you replied to her in the YouTube comments!
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.
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.
Lol nope, I haven’t had a chance to check that one out yet; I’ve been too busy mulling over whywontgodhealamputees.com. :)
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?
Thanks Philip. I’ve always wanted to write a book, but I doubt anybody would publish it. You gotta have credentials!
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.
