It's been a while since I reviewed religious apologetics.
So I have been searching for anything new on the Theistic landscape.
So far, I've found absolutely nothing new in their arguments for God and for defense of their Faith in God.
I've been also viewing all the latest debates between Theists and others.
Again the Theist debaters, both Islamic and Christian offer nothing new.
The most intelligent Apologists appear to be those on the Islamic front line.
They leave the Christian Apologists well behind in cleverness and reasoning methodology, yet they all fall short of being Rational.
They are still relying on the same old Arguments From Ignorance Fallacies.
Namely the Cosmological Arguments (mostly the Kalam version), The Teleological Argument ( still the William Paley argument Darwin destroyed) and the Ontological Argument for God or can you imagine a Maximally Perfect Gandalf or Leprechaun? Well I can, but that doesn't make them exist.
A few years ago the Presuppositional Arguments for God gained big time promotion and many evangelical fundamentalists presented this argument to confuse and win debates against unsuspecting atheists.
The Presuppositional (circular reasoning, nonsensical) arguments appear to have ceased and died off, as it was realized that even if they win such a debate, it still doesn't show that they have proven their God exists, as it is no more proof for God than it is proof of Leprechauns or Tooth Fairies.
Even the very popular Christian Fundamentalist Apologist and Debater, William Lane Craig, who continually argues from extreme Ignorance, False Personal Authority, Personal Credulity, and several other common fallacies, refuses to accept Presupposition as a valid argument for God. Craig produces so many fallacies every time he posts a blog or appears in a debate, that sometimes I wonder how he passed Secondary School Philosophy, let alone at university level, I suppose he must have bribed his lecturers..
So, it looks as if Presuppositionalism is Dead.
This only leaves the old arguments from Ignorance and Special Pleading Fallacies that they have been rearranging and reinventing (badly) for centuries, that I have mentioned above.
Also their defense against the Atheist, argument from the existence of Evil, is also extremely Irrational, and they often try to throw the Burden Of Proof, back onto the atheist, as they truly have no answer as to why such evil exists in spite of an all loving, all knowing, all powerful god.
It is beyond them.
So far, Theistic Apologetics, still displays the most Irrational thinking possible by seemingly (supposedly) intelligent humans.
If Theistic delusion can produce such dumb, idiotic, irrational humans, regardless of their IQ, then there definitely must be something wrong with Theism.
I used to think that Apologists were fair dinkum believers in their idiotic apologetic arguments.
Though, after watching many of them in debates and how they twist and turn almost inside out under scrutiny, I'm beginning to believe that like many Young Earth Creationist authors, that they are truly just telling porkies for monetary support.
It appears that many Apologists are simply telling lies for money or support.
Since it was many years that I discovered that no truth in any form exists in Theistic Apologetics.
That hasn't changed, it appears to have become worse or more deceptive and decrepit.
The Proof is In the Nonsense Pudding Theistic Apologetics Produces!
