This posting has been removed in deference to JKJ's complaint. I apologize for any unintentional offense. Although it seemed to me within the acceptable bounds of behavior to post my all too sparse thoughts on this all too sparsely read blog, still: viola. The offending post is dead. Long live the new inoffensive post.
In his reply post below, JKJ makes reference to "Scaling the Secular City by J.P. Moreland". I, not having read Mr. Moreland's tome, searched for a competent review from the atheist perspective.
EBON MUSINGS: THE ATHEISM PAGES,BOOK REVIEWS:Scaling the Secular City
The reviewer pinpoints Moreland's ample fallacies and praises his scholarship. He concludes that:
As I have stated earlier, I commend Moreland's scholarship. His book was forthright in citing alternative views so that his readers can check them if they wish, and for the most part lacked the irrational emotional assertions so common to Christian apologetics. However, that does not make his assertions valid, and as I hope I have demonstrated, every single one of his major arguments possesses serious flaws. Especially damaging to his case was his defense of creationism and the several occasions on which he correctly refutes a fallacious argument against theism, only to then apply that exact same fallacious argument to atheism. Otherwise I view him as a competent expounder of Christian theology, and therefore I view the flaws in his arguments as lying within Christianity itself, not merely his presentation of it. Scaling the Secular City showed conclusively, in my mind, that the logical gaps and problems in this belief system cannot be overcome.
Here is a link to a brief critique of Moreland's book.
