In Memory of Counterpoints; August 5 – August 14, 2007

The great (slight exaggeration) experiment is over. The short reason is that we couldn’t get along. It may be for the best though, because it was bound to be nothing but…well, an argument. That’s not necessarily bad, but, I’ll admit, I tend to go for the throat. Sometimes sarcastic, sometimes aggressive, always on point.

I usually enjoy the sport of it, particularly when my opponent is as aggressive and intense as I get. But alas, it was not meant to be. So, here at Power of Suggestion, I will be replacing my criticism of The God Delusion with a criticism of The Case for a Creator.

Counterpoints: The God Delusion Preface

Here we are. Ryan has summarized the project pretty well, so I’ll send you there to see his post first (if you’re returning, or started there, read on).

I’ll follow his lead in just a moment to give you a little background into me and my perspective, but I do have some comments about Dawkins preface to the God Delusion. Judging from the preface, much of his argument centers around the premise that Christians believe what they do because they were inculcated as children, and that teaching is so ingrained that they refuse to see the “truth” of his arguments. Unfortunately, none of this applies to me.
