GOOD ONE! I really liked this one!
Funny how a christian reading this one would say "Exactly!" I mean, they'd agree with it. They'd say "now you've got it, Pliny!" Ahh, poor little christstains.
Sadly. I think this is spot on. If you read any of WL Craig's writings for example, he talks about the importance of the holy spirit is seeing the world correctly, and in being able to simply dismiss any objections. The apologist who used to come to your site fit this pretty well too.
Yes, he (Eric) admitted (finally!) that you need at least a grain of faith in order to see proof of God. Which is totally circular, of course. Sad.
