I was recently contacted by a Christian apologist, asking permission if he could use the content of my list of bible contradictions in order to rebut them in Youtube videos. My interest was immediately piqued. Although I have probably abandoned the series, I was surprised because no one bothers to ask my permission to use anything on this site! Indeed, as has probably happened to many other bloggers, often my posts are stolen in toto without permission and posted to commercial websites, where the owners receive advertising revenue at my expense. So of course I said yes (he has not monetized his videos, but even if he had I would still let him use my material).
The video series in question can be found on Davids Goliath’s youtube channel. The series is titled “Bible Contradictions Explained,” and currently he has uploaded videos for the first three contradictions in the series.
To be honest to David, however, I hope he doesn’t expect to win me over as a convert, but I believe it’s important to engage in conversation with those whose beliefs are so divergent from mine. Besides, he might succeed in convincing me that a certain contradiction is not actually a contradiction at all. I’m interested in the truth, so this too is important to me.
Unfortunately, like I stated, I’ve moved on from the contradiction series to other things in my field, so I will not be responding to his rebuttals, but, like anyone who believes in dialogue should do, he has left open his comments section on his videos. Feel free to watch and offer him any feedback/criticisms/questions.
