Somacandra: exick: a subscription to a YouTube channel featuring Richard Dawkins' debates.Oh please. Dawkins is a very good biologist. But he has absolutely no training or education in religious studies theory or methods. His "arguments" are warmed over 19th century anthropological criticisms and he has no clue on how to address religion as an actual lived phenomenon worldwide. He reads a few translated lines of an ancient sutra out of context and suddenly thinks he's an expert on Jainism. As a geneticist he's very good but like Christopher Hitchens or Bill Maher he wouldn't get more than a "C" in a competently taught freshman religious studies course at a university.

Huck And Molly Ziegler: Hey, Focus on the Family -- you guys need to pay attention to this one! This is a real news article! Written about a real person with real anxieties. You need to issue a press release, and offer support to the young man in his time of crisis! I'm serious! This is NO JOKE!!!!
nerftaig: On a lighter note does anyone else love when Christians use "that argument is so old 100 years come on get with the times man" as a criticism?
