Former atheist declares healing power of god

Former atheist declares healing power of god
Seems some atheists lately are preferring irrationality over reason.

Quote:Author and former atheist-turned-Christian Lee Strobel says in a released excerpt from his new book The Case for Grace that God healed his debilitating illness.

Oh, never mind, he is just taking advantage of the tried and true get rich quick scheme of writing for the gullible theistitards.

So, how was he healed by god? All the article claims is that he was hallucinating due to completely natural, if unfortunate, complications from surgery. Unless I missed a second page...?

Well, I was cured of terrible hallucinations by becoming an atheist, so I guess it works both ways.

When you think of it former atheists are a great marketing strategy for religion - "Even those asshole atheists converted, it must have some meaning"
Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you

From what I've been able to gather, Lee Strobel is not to be taken seriously.

I'm not sure if he rises to the level of a Ken Ham, but he's certainly not noteworthy when it comes to arguments like this.

I listened to Steve Shives take apart one of Strobels books. Man, that guy is a piece of work. He's as full of shit as they come. Another case of former atheist (if that part's not an outright lie) with all the sceptical power of an itchy verruca.
Feel free to send me a private message.

This is old crap. Switching from one label to another label is not what evidence is about. If that were good logic he could go from atheist to Muslim which would make Allah the one true god. Or he could go from atheist to Hindu or atheist to Mormon, and that would make those clubs and their heros credible.

This is nothing more than an apology book. Science is label independent.
