As this debate began I felt a little sympathy for Dr. Clark’s statement that Pastor Durbin, followed by Dr. White, had not truly addressed the subject of the debate but his increasingly unhinged and unrelenting illogical presentation eliminated that feeling. By the end Dr. Clark was thoroughly confrontational and completely unreasonable.
Jeff Durbin gave his typical presuppositional presentation with Dr. White doing a good job of backfilling and keeping his side on topic.
Dr. Clark dominated the atheist side with his disconnected ranting. Dan Ellis didn’t get much chance to speak and seemed very uncomfortable with what was going on and unable to directly engage as well.
2 Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher,
vanity of vanities! All is vanity.
3 What does man gain by all the toil
at which he toils under the sun?
4 A generation goes, and a generation comes,
but the earth remains forever.
5 The sun rises, and the sun goes down,
and hastens to the place where it rises.
6 The wind blows to the south
and goes around to the north;
around and around goes the wind,
and on its circuits the wind returns.
7 All streams run to the sea,
but the sea is not full;
to the place where the streams flow,
there they flow again.
8 All things are full of weariness;
a man cannot utter it;
the eye is not satisfied with seeing,
nor the ear filled with hearing.
9 What has been is what will be,
and what has been done is what will be done,
and there is nothing new under the sun.
10 Is there a thing of which it is said,
“See, this is new”?
It has been already
in the ages before us.
11 There is no remembrance of former things,
nor will there be any remembrance
of later things yet to be
among those who come after.
so here I go trying this out again. I am a little more motivated this time. I really want to move away from Facebook and Google so maybe this time I will stick with it.
