Quick rebuttals to common Christian claims



This is just a brief excerpt from Richard Carrier (the entire debate is available here), but I thought it was interesting how many different arguments were addressed in just a few minutes.

From the video description, here are some of them with the relevant time stamps:

00:28 "Spacetime had a beginning"
1:38 "The Universe is fine tuned for life"
3:43 "Life requires a creator"
5:20 "Consciousness requires a spirit/soul"
7:34 "God is needed for objective moral values"
9:07 "Jesus was resurrected"

Happy Thanksgiving



Happy Thanksgiving, everyone (anyone left reading this, at least). Sorry I don't blog anymore.
