Really Recommended Posts 5/9/14- Colbert, atheism, logic in the Bible, and more!

postHere, we have a number of posts that key in on some specific aspects of atheism. I’ve also offered up a review of a challenge to traditional interpretations of church history alongside a post which shows that there are syllogisms in the Bible. Let me know your thoughts.

The Modern Missionaries of Evangelical Atheism– Over at the Christian Apologetics Alliance blog, this post analyzes the statements of various new atheists against the backdrop of “religiosity.” What kind of questions might be answered? What of science and religion?

Syllogisms in the Bible– Kurt Jaros has written an excellent piece here, wherein he shows what a syllogism is, explains some basics of logic, and shows where some syllogisms may be found in the Bible.

6 Times Stephen Colbert Got Serious About Faith– The alternate persona Colbert has created is silly, but is there any seriousness that ever breaks through? I’m not convinced that each of these times demonstrates a moment when Colbert was “serious about faith,” but it is an interesting read, and reveals some of the Colbert we may see as he changes shows.

Book Plunge: How Jesus Became God– Nick Peters analyzes Bart Ehrman’s book which attempts to show the development of theology that allegedly shows the notion Jesus was God was a later development. This review is a good look at many points raised in Ehrman’s book. Also check out my review of the response book: “How God became Jesus.”

The Closing of the New Atheist Mind– An interesting analysis of “New Atheist” methodology, which, it is alleged, tends to be shaped by the ideologies with which it disagrees.

  2. Good links. Unfortunately the New Atheists betray their rationality in their assault on religion. They dont understand that their efforts will ultimately be in the vain. The Christian faith Many non-religious people(like me) tend to stay away from it, its like the politicised version of aggressive atheism.

    Interesting link on Stephen Colbert btw, thanks for sharing!

    • I meant to add “The Christian faith is not going to go away just because a subset of atheists despise it” oops 🙂

    • Thanks for commenting. I tell you truly, when I get a comment it makes my day! So thanks for stopping by. Anyway, I agree that there is a kind of irrationality to some attacks on Christianity. What are you saying you stay away from? New Atheism? Sorry, just trying to clarify. I’m glad you liked the link on Colbert. I quite enjoyed it myself.
