Sometimes I Try to Do Nice Things!
Sye is an expert in the area of presuppositional apologetics and he offers powerful training to equip the average, everyday believer to defend their faith with anyone and everyone in our culture. Sye has been a guest on the Living Waters “On the Box” internet TV program, he has been featured in numerous debates with top “Atheists”, and he is also currently writing a book on this subject. In short…he knows his stuff!
So says the website for the Cross Current, who are offering an ‘Apologetics Training Opportunity’. My favourite part of the page is this –
Cost: We want to bless Sye with a generous love offering. $10.00 is the suggested “starting” donation for all attendees, but please feel free to give beyond as the Lord leads!
A ‘generous love offering’ sounds far more pornographic than I think they intended, but at least it made me laugh!
Anyway, showing that I can do a good deed once in a while, I’ve fired off the following email to the Cross Current –
I saw that you’re going to be hosting Sye TenBruggencate at an event soon, and that you’re hoping to be able to give him some money. I thought I’d maybe help out and save you a few quid by giving you the entirety of Sye’s argument FOR FREE!! I know! Incredible eh?
Ok, here it is.
1. The god of the Bible is needed for intelligibility to exist
2. Intelligibility exists
3. Therefore the god of the Bible exists
Wow! Is that all there is to it? YES!
Now, there is a *slight* problem with his line of reasoning, and that is it’s vicious circularity! In fact, it’s so circular that when I told my 13 year old son about it he said ‘But Dad, that’s just a word game! You could use that ‘logic’ to ‘prove’ anything!’. I’m sure you’ll be able to gain something from his flawed point of view though!
Glad I could help!
Aren’t I just the nicest?
