If Richard Dawkins Is Right
Last week at church (C4 in Ajax) my pastor (Jon Thompson) finished off with an amazing quote (small story). Below is a link to that conversation.
“Nobody knows who the four evangelists were, but they almost certainly never met Jesus personally. Much of what they wrote was in no sense an honest attempt at history. . . . The gospels are ancient fiction.” – Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
If Dawkins is correct, one might imagine the following conversation . . .

I love the entire conversation. It reveals the lunacy of Dawkins comment. Besides, what gives Dawkins the idea that he can speak on these matters from an authoritative position?
From my experience of dealing with atheists is that they fall for the same logical fallacy; special pleading. In other words, and many of us know this by years of study in theology and hermeneutics, that the atheists have absolutely no clue what the authors of the Bible are actually saying. So they speak presumptuously and ignorantly.
However, when we point out the faults of their arguments concerning many areas of science, then we are accused of not being in a position of understanding and lack the degrees to substantiate what we claim.
They want their cake and eat it too and this is always done through logical fallacies. The sad part is, they cannot see how illogical their arguments are; hence Dawkins pathetic claim.
