Maybe He Needs an Outsider Test?

John just committed unintended irony #5,764,382 with this one...

Quote of the Day by a Christian Named Marcus McElhaney
By John W. Loftus at 8/27/2010

" Emory and Greg, I concede that the Bible is indeed both of you! Other people don't agree with you[r or] Greg's thoughts on how confusing the Bible is. Maybe you just need to study harder."

This quote is utterly ridiculous to the nth degree. If we study harder then we'd come to Marcus's conclusions, right? Right! With thinking skills like the ones Marcus displays here at DC, no wonder he believes. If Marcus is the example then we need to be almost brain dead to believe.
Uh....but who was it who said in defense of his "Outsider Test" that the main sign of whether you pass is that you come to believe the same things John Loftus does?

The more John talks, the more he helps us out!


  1. Wow. Thanks for posting this Dr. Holding. I enjoy your work very much and I'm happy to see you weigh in. Loftus does not really want his ideas challenged, yet he says Christians do not want their worldview criticized. I'm praying for him and the others who have bought his kool-aid.

  2. John L. is certianly not known for objective and cogent arguments.

  3. Thanks Marcus, though I am not a Dr. (unless like "Dr. Demento").

    You're probably wasting your time with comments over on DC. People like them are too ignorant to deal with the really sophisticated stuff we used to hit John on the head with at TWeb. ;)

  4. Loftus is an admitted liar.

    I don't understand why he is even taking seriously anymore.
