Why I despise Christian Apologists

I have the utmost contempt for Christian apologists, especially William Lane Craig. They start with a lame argument using 400-year old science why the universe had to have a jump-starter.

  1. Then they leap to the conclusion the starter was supernatural, a deity, and outside space, time and the universe (even though the universe by definition contains all that is, including any deities).
  2. Then they leap to the conclusion it named itself Yahweh.
  3. Then they leap to the conclusion Jesus walked on water and rose from the dead.
  4. Then they leap to the conclusion Yahweh watches all the masturbation of all teens on planet earth.
  5. Then they leap to the conclusion your most important moral duty is to make the lives of homosexuals as miserable as possible.
  6. Then they leap to the conclusion Yahweh answers every prayer, even though he obviously does no such thing, unless by answers you mean silently ignores prayers.
  7. Then sometimes they even leap to the conclusion you should vote Republican.

None of this follows. It is one giant non-sequitur, and they know it! But the bastards keep repeating the lies and pretending these are necessary consequences of the universe-starter argument.
