It’s Stupid to Think Christianity is as Stupid as Some Skeptics Suppose
by Tom Gilson
Over and over again, skeptics keep showing their unwillingness to think about the possibility that someone has thought about a question before.

Zero contradictions? How many years do you have as we go through these contradictions one by one?
How many sons does Yahweh have?
John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
Genesis 6:2-4 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
Job 1:6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.
Luke 3:38 the son of Enosh, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God.
