This Fellow Rips Lee Stroebel A New Asshole
And rightly so, he's just another jesus freak shithead who only hears what he wants to hear.

http://www.rawstory.com/2017/04/the-case...urrection/

Quote:The Case for Christ: What’s the evidence for the resurrection?

Quote:Yet the two biblical scholars who feature in the movie, Gary Habermas and William Lane Craig, both teach at institutions (Liberty University and Biola University, respectively) that require their faculty to sign statements affirming that they believe the Bible is inspired by God and is free of any contradictions, historical inaccuracies or moral failings. For example, the Liberty University faculty application requires assent to the following statement:
Quote:“We affirm that the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, though written by men, was supernaturally inspired by God so that all its words are written true revelation of God; it is therefore inerrant in the originals and authoritative in all matters.”
The overwhelming majority of professional biblical scholars teaching in the United States and elsewhere are not required to sign such statements of faith. Many of the other scholars he interviews in his book have similar affiliations. Strobel has thus drawn from a quite narrow range of scholars that are not representative of the field as a whole. (I estimate there are somewhere around 10,000 professional biblical scholars globally.)

Nonetheless, one can bet that the morons will be jerking off to this absurd movie.  Let's call it "Jesus Porn."

Strobel makes the mistake of using the bible to prove the bible.
The bible is the claim not the evidence.
I think he and people like him know this but are making the most of a tissue thin if not non-existent case.

Here he is in "God's Not Dead 2" making his case.  It's the kind of bullshit that only impresses other Christians, like the A.D. and B.C. changing in the calendar proves Jesus was real. Never mind the fact that that wasn't invented until 525 A.D. Not only that, he blatantly lies about Habermas being an atheist.

He's either a con-man or an idiot, as per usual with these guys.

an aside:

I'm not complaining per se, but your use of sexual imagery in thread topics is rarely satisfying for me . . . .
 The granting of a pardon is an imputation of guilt, and the acceptance a confession of it.

Here's the box office results:

Did anyone here see it?  (Did anyone get a boner while watching?  Females, of course, need not reply.)
And without delay Peter went quickly out of the synagogue (assembly) and went unto the house of Marcellus, where Simon lodged: and much people followed him...And Peter turned unto the people that followed him and said: Ye shall now see a great and marvellous wonder. And Peter seeing a great dog bound with a strong chain, went to him and loosed him, and when he was loosed the dog received a man's voice and said unto Peter: What dost thou bid me to do, thou servant of the unspeakable and living God? Peter said unto him: Go in and say unto Simon in the midst of his company: Peter saith unto thee, Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And immediately the dog ran and entered in, and rushed into the midst of them that were with Simon, and lifted up his forefeet and in a loud voice said: Thou Simon, Peter the servant of Christ who standeth at the door saith unto thee: Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou most wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And when Simon heard it, and beheld the incredible sight, he lost the words wherewith he was deceiving them that stood by, and all of them were amazed. (The Acts of Peter, 9)

Anyone know what the budget was for this turd? That opening weekend sales figure is unimpressive.

Well, they usually make these for dirt cheap, because they know Christians will flock to it no matter how poorly made it is. Wikipedia is saying it cost 3 million while another site I saw said "around 5 million."

It will have a huge profit margin like the other Christian propaganda films, because they don't have to make a bundle at the box office and have a built-in audience. Then there's the DVD money...

It's a sweet racket.

I remember hearing that when I subjected myself to the masochistic torment of his fallacy-ridden twaddle listened to his "Case for Christ" on audio as I was driving one day and felt so bewildered by the sheer stupidity and wonder of how anyone could buy into this crap inspired. The reasoning is quite circular simple. 

1. The Bible tells us Jesus is Lord.
2. We know this is true because Jesus fulfilled the Bible's prophecies (actually, no, he really didn't which is why the Jews didn't buy this crap)
3. We know that he fulfilled the Bible's prophecies because the Bible tells us he did. (actually, no, but let that go since the whole argument is laughably circular anyway). 

Fuck me some people are so stupid. PRAISE THE LORD!

Here's the IMDB record for it:

They don't list their budget.
