The Scathing Atheist podcast read and broke down the book. It is a bat shit insane book but was a hilarious review. After you listen to Keith and the Girl check out the Scathing Atheist.

This was an excellent episode. Kudos to Lahna for being so open about everything.

I hope those vultures around Ralphie May get hit by cars.

Lahna was on an episode with Dr. Drew this week also - haven't heard it yet but it seems a likely subject for him.

I read the Case for Christ back when I was a Christian. Of course I loved it then . Lee Strobel is a charlatan who pretends to be an ex-atheist (this is common for evangelists) on an investigation. At no point does he apply basic skepticism to the claims of Christianity. It's an absolute tire fire that only exists to make money off of people who already think magical beings live in the sky that they're ever so right.

I read The Case for Christ - it didn't stick. I have an ebb and flow with Christianity - 2 things usually push me away: actually reading the Bible and not being able to get very far without thinking "this is bullshit," and the lack of empathy that seems evident in a majority of American Christians regarding abortion and same sex attraction. However, always at the back of my mind is the thought that all people are horrible and how could any of them originate the idea of "do unto others" or the story of the Prodigal Son. I wrote a poem about this during a time when I was feeling more positive about religion - before the "Nashville Statement."

Upset apathetic
Online frenetic
Buzzing timelines
No room for the fine lines
Of the Gospel
But sometimes?
A story intrudes
Prodigal, son
Must be construed
As Divine
And the person of Jesus shines
True

One other note, as Chemda implied, variances in translation mean that there are varying beliefs about doctrine. There are reasonable arguments against the Trinity - despite how some try to force it, Jesus said he was the son of God, not that he was God. Also, hell as a Biblical concept is debatable.

My dad wrote back after I asked he he read The Case for Christ.

"I have not read that particular book, but it seemed to contain in general all the same info that I had learned on the subject when I was in the seminary. It was a two-year course in the seminary (we went into extreme detail) in which I was the only one in the class that got all "A"s in it. Whatever I may have missed, I look forward to you informing me."
