Strobel is known for throwing softball questions at people who agree with him. While he usually goes to people with genuine expertise he is willing to set even that aside in the name of cherry-picking.

You will not find a decent look at the pros and cons in one of Strobel’s books - by intent.

I very much doubt that any on the “other side” actually think that Strobel has very good arguments. Indeed, if he did, why is his presentation so one-sided ?

No miracle here
The DRC is struggling with measles and Ebola.Ars Technica


...a 46-year-old pastor tested positive for Ebola in the DRC city of Goma. The pastor was on an evangelical mission and had recently traveled from the Butembo, which has grappled with the viral disease since last December. While there, the pastor had delivered sermons in seven churches and laid his hands on worshippers, some of whom were ill.

The pastor began experiencing Ebola symptoms while he was in Butembo, nevertheless he travelled back to Goma, where he was fortunately diagnosed before he could do more to spread the disease.

Re: No miracle here
Sadly, the infected pastor has since died. His contacts are being monitored and we may hope that he did not pass the infection on.

Re: Doing It All Yourself

First of all, I dont agree that allapologists are simply snake oil salesman. Second, the evidence shows that nearly everyone who markets the "snake told the truth and God lied" explanation are themselves atheists and/or agnostics...except you

Interesting that you don’t notice the contradiction. The story is clear that the snake told the truth. Anyone who tries to pretend otherwise is ignorant - or likely selling snake oil.
