Just a quick thought on the “RRS vs God Squad” debate

So here’s the thing right… after being directed to the “Way of the Master” website, I was intrigued as to what some other people’s reactions would be. While I’m certainly no great Christian, I can see some of what they are trying to do. But on the other hand, it seems to me that the WOTM people certainly verge into the realm of fear mongering with their loaded questions.

It was while looking around that I came across the “Rational Responders” website, and also onto the youtube videos featuring a debate between the RRS on one side (Brian Sapient and “Kelly”), and the WOTM/”God Squad” on the other side (Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron).

If you’re interested in debates regarding intelligent design, you might want to while away a few minutes on these videos.

Now, while it’s certainly clear that the God Squad failed in the debate – and, please note, I state this solely due to the fact that Ray Comfort alleged he could prove, scientifically and without the use of faith and the bible the existence of God… yet then went on to base his argument upon scripts in the bible – it should also be clear that the RRS could have done a much better job.

Brian, this is my advice to you.

Debate alone.

While I don’t know Kelly, I give you this advice as an impartial viewer; she was unquestionably the weak link in your argument. She allowed herself to become to embroiled in personal barbed statements, and her voice became more and more shrill with her exasperation.

Exasperation is not what is needed here. A level, rational head is.

Debate alone dude.
