I DO NOT KNOW HOW THE UNIVERSE WAS FORMED, BUT I DO KNOW THAT GOD DIDN’T DO IT

In December 1993 Dr. Greg L. Bahnsen debated atheist lawyer Mr. Edward “Eddie” Tabash.  As far as I know this video is not available elsewhere on the internet (although there are poor audio recordings on You Tube).

I will be posting the entire debate in segments on my blog.  If you wish to purchase the full-length version, please contact Covenant Media Foundation.

 ***

In this episode Mr. Tabash and Dr. Bahnsen make their closing statements. Here are highlights:

MR. TABASH CLOSING REMARKS

  • I don’t have to know how the universe was formed [but I do know that it wasn’t God who did it]
  • Why aren’t there any miracles today?
  • Where is the proof that Jesus did any miracles?
  • We shouldn’t believe in a God who sends people to hell; we should believe in one who loves everybody

 *

DR. BAHNSEN CLOSING REMARKS

  • God has provided visible verification (2 Peter 1:16)
  • The atheist doesn’t like the idea of God so he simply says He doesn’t exist
  • The atheist is unable to offer proof for his theories
  • The atheist’s worldview is self-contradictory
  • The atheist cannot defend their theory that life can evolve from nonlife
  • Atheists are emotionally committed to an unintelligible worldview
  • Atheists are walking, living contradictions
  • Atheists pronouncements are driven by emotion
  • Atheists live by a blind and contradictory faith
  • The atheist’s worldview is closer to superstition than science
