Who Wrote Mathew? Part 1

Matt Dillahunty is an outspoken atheist and the host of the show "The Atheist Experience". This is a live call in show where they challenge Theists to call in.

Dillahunty the week before was saying nobody knows who wrote Mathew, and a 15 year old kid Kabane calls in and in my opinion cleans Dillahuntys clock!


Dillahunty completely exposes his bias against the supernatural by saying that Kabanes problem is that he is comparing the NT to the same tests we would any other work in History. This is called "special Pleading".

"Special pleading is a form of spurious argumentation where a position in a dispute introduces favorable details or excludes unfavorable details by alleging a need to apply additional considerations without proper criticism of these considerations themselves. Essentially, this involves someone attempting to cite something as an exemption to a generally accepted rule, principle, etc. without justifying the exemption."

@ 2:19

Kabane exposes his bias against miracles by rejecting any text if it contains miracles and putting them in the myth category.

So instead of looking at the evidence and investigating the arguments for the resurrection he simply rejects it from the start because of his presupposition against miracles. Kabane does a great job of exposing the hosts presuppositions!


Dillahunty says he dosent believe a text that contained miracles because its not enough evidence for him. The problem is that the resurrection is a historical event thus only has historical evidence to support it. You will see as this goes on Dillahunty continuously makes a category mistake by thinking we need to use the scientific method to test miracle claims that happened in the past.

@ 7:22

Kabane again exposes Dillahunty and his continuous special pleading, bravo Kabane!!

Who Wrote Mathew? Part 2

Kabane nails Dillahunty here on his subjective claim that "extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence".


Kabane nails him again and exposes him for his bias against Theism.


Matt again makes a category mistake by saying the scientific method is the best way to find truth. While this maybe true in the area of science, it is a category mistake to assume the way to get to the truth of historical claims is by the scientific method.

Dillahunty espouses the view of "scientism". Scientism claims that science alone can render truth about the world and reality. This is a classic example of why this view fails! When dealing with historical claims one must use historical criteria, NOT the scientific method.


Dillahunty shows that he would never be open to believe in the resurrection because it is a historical event which can not be put under the scientific method.

So it is not a rejection based on the evidence for the resurrection, but he rejects the resurrection because of his philosophical commitment to "scientism".


Kabane asks him if in his view that science is only informer of truth. Dillahunty says emphatically no, and then goes on to say no way of finding truth has been shown to be better than the scientific method. So he again double speaks trying to hide his bias and commitment to scientism.

Again, on his view he could never look objectivley at the evidence for the resurrection because it is a historical event and not able to undergo the scientific method, which he claims is the best and most reliable way to find truth. This is just a basic category mistake on his part which is a logical fallacy and Kabane did a great job exposing his views!

Who Wrote Mathew? Part 3

Here Dillahunty demonstrates his bias against the supernatural. Historical claims can not be tested by the scientific method because they are events which happened in the past. How can one use the scientific method to see if Abraham Lincoln did certain acts in history?

Historical claims must be evaluated by the criteria of the historian, not the scientist!


Matt really shows how self refuting his position is by claiming that miracles are testable, and then in the next breath says the scientific method is repeatable. A miracle by definition is a one time event. If a miracle continued to happen over and over again, it wouldnt be a miracle but part of natural law!

Who Wrote Mathew? Part 4

Kabane sticks it to Dillahunty hear and dosent let him weasel out of his previous claims about Mathew!

Dr. R.C. Sproul on Apologetics

Dr. Sproul explains the task of apologetics and why we need it so badly in the church. In my opinion Dr. Sproul and Dr. Geisler are some of the greatest apologists alive today!

Why Apologetics?

In this video Dr. Norman Geisler explains why we need apologetics so badly in the church today. Unfortunately because the church has gave up the life of the mind, Christians are leaving the church in droves!

Dr. Geisler in this interview gives good reasons as to why we must take back the life of the mind!

Dr. Jonathan Wells on Dr. Francis Collins

onathan Wells, take on certain claims made by Francis Collins (author of Language of God) on evolution, Darwinism and the existence of God.

I highly recommend Dr. Wells book "Icons of evolution" which is available at most book stores or

Intelligent Design

Here is an interview with Dr. William Dembski and skeptic Michael Shermer

Gods Omnipotence

Many people do not have a correct understanding of omnipotence. God can only do that which is logically possible. For example, God can not create a married bachelor or a square circle. Not because he dosent have enough power, but because these things do not exist. They are logically contradictory thus it is not a power issue but a logic issue.

God can not lie, nor can he stop being God. God can do that which is logically possible because the laws of logic flow from his very nature, thus God is not a self refutting being!

Dr. Gary Habermas crushes his opponent in this discussion on the historical evidence for the resurrection of Jesus Christ

A True Skeptic Is an Informed Skeptic: Dr. Donald L. Ewert on Why He Doubts Darwin

On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. Donald L. Ewert, an original signer of the Scientific Dissent From Darwinism, explains how he became interested in the debate over evolution. Dr. Ewert received his Ph.D. from the University of Georgia in 1976. As a microbiologist, he operated a research laboratory at the Wistar Institute in Philadelphia for almost twenty years. The Wistar Institute is one of the world's leading centers for biomedical research. His research, supported by National Institute of Health, National Science Foundation, and Department of Agriculture grants, has involved the immune system, viruses, and cellular biology.

Icons of Evolution

After 10 years Dr. Jonathan Wells looks back at his ground breaking book which destroyed the famous Icons of evolution. Be sure to scroll down the blog and watch the video documentary of "Icons of Evolution".

Does The Universe Have Purpose?

Matt Ridley, Michael Shermer, Richard Dawkins VS Rabbi David Wolpe, William Lane Craig, Douglas Geivett

Richard Dawkins who is a very outspoken Atheist has been challenged for years by Christian apologist and well known debater Dr. William Lane Craig to have a open public debate. After years of running Craig finally gets a shot at him!

Cambrian Explosion

Are students learning the whole truth about Darwin's theory of evolution?
According to a growing number of scientists, the surprising answer is no.

The Cambrian explosion certainly upsets Darwins "tree of life". It demonstrates that there is not a nice steady transition as one would expect if Darwinism were true, but rather an explosion of new animals and phyla. This video will show you some of the massive holes in Darwins theory!
