2008 hasn't started well for the Soldiers of the Lord. Geoff Simmons of the Discovery Institute ("NAMBLA") had his ass handed to him by PZ Myers, and even more fun, self-styled wanker-for-Christ and the least pleasant man in apologetics J P Holding found himself way out of his depth after picking on prickly academic Hector Avalos.
In both cases, even the Christian peanut gallery handed victory to the godless heathens... And both Simmons and Holding have been busy re-writing history with themselves as the winners.
Holding writes at his absurd Tektonics:
"These days I reserve my ammunition for those who might be considered the cream of the crop of the atheist world."What a twat.
Which brings me to this video:
I'd never seen Holding's face before. I'd always envisaged him as a small chap with a Napoleon complex... But it seems he's as corpulant and as pudding-like as his bully-boy persona.
In this 30 second clip, Holding shows that his years of "study" and "ministry" devoted to convincing himself and the feeble minded that everything happened exactly like he learned in Sunday School has been a total waste of time. He shows himself that his entire life's work and religious vocation depend entirely on his ability to believe one set of fairy tales and disbelieve all others.
But hey. I'm sure he treats his dogs well.
Here's JohnLArmstrong answering Holding's question, in case anyone missed it:
Game, set and match.
Edit: Since Holding pretends his belief in the Resurrection is based on solid historical evidence, he deserves one of these...
