Reality Debate | Atheist David Silverman vs Christian Frank Turek

Examine Reality from Broadmoor Baptist on Vimeo.

The video above is the Reality Debate which took place on April 18th, 2013 between Frank Turek and David Silverman.

Frank Turek makes some really great points in favor of theism that the atheist cannot handle. He is a great speaker and brilliant in some areas. However, in my opinion he gets killed when Silverman talks about Genesis, the supposed old earth and evolution. This happens because Turek does not take the early chapters of Genesis literally or as history and clearly doesn't know the evidence for the young earth. It astounds me how many Christians reject evolution based on science and reject the lies of atheists in favor of it, but wholeheartedly embrace billions of years as if they were not based on methods and assumptions that are severely in error and ignore the scientific evidence for the young earth as the Bible describes.

Additionally, if Turek did convince anyone with his arguments, he only led them to a theistic false religion or an unknown God and they are still lost. He certainly did not defend the Bible.

Meanwhile, the gay atheist incessantly tells obvious lies, especially in his first rebuttal.

David Silverman

He calls this the turning point in his life where he decided never to lie about his atheism again because he had gotten up on stage and told all the people he knew that he believed in God.[2][3]Seventeen years later his father admitted to him that he also was an atheist.
