Atheists are winning the debate

May 15, 2010: There are a number of lines of thought that make me think that the atheists are winning the debate lately. Here, I want to mention just one. Richard Carrier, an atheist, a skeptic, an American historian and Bible scholar gave a talk at Missouri State — Missouri being the “show me” state — and it’s on youtube. The whole thing is pretty good, in 6 parts, if you’re interested in this sort of thing. I am going to just zoom in on the last part, part 6, in the Q&A session at the end, when one person asks Mr. Carrier what is the best argument for God with which he’s been confronted:

His answer: “There isn’t one” and he says it “smells of desperation.”

Part 1 of Richard Carrier’s talk at Missouri state is here.
