Christians vs Christians (yec)

Christians vs Christians (yec)
For last few months there was a bit of a clash online between right wing Christians who apparently acknowledge evolution and Ken Ham people in form of videos where they kind of ridiculed each other's views.
They even called for face to face debate offering $10k to each other but since it didn't follow through an atheist youtuber edited their videos so it looks like a debate.
Ken Ham even scratched some of his earlier claims (lied) like when he said that they never said you can't be a good Christian and "believe" in evolution because this is not something he usually preaches.

Here's the vid



teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

Challenge each other to debates?  Gotta applaud that...imagine a world where dogmatic differences were only settled via talking about them.  *sigh*

When an atheist watches theists debate each other to many, it is like watching a Star Wars fan debate a Star Trek fan.

More like watching two Star Trek fans debating whether Kirk or Picard was the better captain.

Yes, within the sub sects of the same umbrella label, like Catholics debating Baptists sure. But the same analogy applies to debates between people of different religions. 

It still amounts to debating mythology.

Or, as I read on a 'Demotivator' image,

"Two theists arguing religion is like asking the question..."

"Which person is more dead?"

"J.F.Kennedy or John Lennon?"

Bad analogy, JFK and John Lennon were real and provable people. To die, you have to be born. Apollo, Allah, God, Yahweh, were products of human imagination. Those deities were not born, they were concocted by human imagination.

Actually, it's a pretty good analogy. Arguing about which imaginary friend is 'better' misses the point that 'imaginary' has no gradations. Same with dead.
