Old Enough to Pat PhDs on the Head.
I wrote on a friend's thread that was joking about age, (hearing Bieber's music on the oldies station) that I was "old enough that it was getting to be disorienting. Reading the impressive and heavy hitting resumes, the people show up and they are kids. I find myself wanting to pat PhDs on the head."
This evening I watched a video of my friend John Mark Reynolds, who is a Ph.D., impressive credentials, doing a miracle work in Houston, Texas, creating an Orthodox Christian K-16 (yes Kindergarten through BA or BS degree school) highly accredited etc., Again AMAZING . . . well, I watched him debate a marginally famous Atheist, somewhat an atheist cult leader, who I have seen chew up and spit out Biblical Fundamentalists and Fundamentalist Creationists, and this time the follow walked into a buzz-saw named John Mark. Watching John's intellect and patience, HUGE patience with demonic dumbness, yes, I wanted to pat John on the head.
Aron Ra is the former president of the Atheist Alliance of America, the host of the Ra-Men Podcast, a public speaker, video producer, blogger, and vlogger. He is also the former Texas state-director of the American Atheists.
This was an ambush debate, and Aron Ra thought he would make JMR look the fool, instead he was left with NO argument, at the end trying desperately to restate what had already been proved FALSE, as if repeating it would make it so.
Aron Ra is a very talented debater, but his Atheism is not truly intellectual, despite all his pretensions, he is rather what we may call a "folk atheist" one of the large and growing numbers of Cultural Marxist deconstructionist, whose atheism rests in attacking Christians, mostly online, though he does have a cult following. What I'm saying is that his arguments are not genuinely philosophical, but polemic, with dazzling canned terms and phrases, butchering philosophical categories, but usually enough to destroy the "Sola-Scriptura" crowd.
We are called to "Defend the Faith" and most Christians are unprepared. Truthfully most Christians do not know what the faith is; many sincerely love Jesus and can give no account for it.
"Best Reason and Best Evidence." My God! Were someone to live in my skin they would understand how, despite John Mark's excellent defense of reason, which is able to lead to faith, how inane this grindingly boring conversation is. AS an exorcist, I can tell you, that the most common affectation of demonic possession is grinding boring dullness. Listen to reasonable arguments and return to the same dullness, as if words have not been spoken. Aron Ra, perfectly fits that example of grinding boring dullness. You have been witnessing this same grindingly boring dullness in the FAKE NEWS media, on an endless loop for two years and thirty-eight days. I want to pat John Mark on the head for his patience in the face of such grinding boring dullness. I think were it me, I would have been tempted to strike him blind or just incoherent.
"Best Reason and Best Evidence." Best Evidence includes personal experience. My God! Were someone to live in my skin these decades, they would understand how despite John Mark's excellent defense of reason, which is able to lead to faith, how inane this grindingly boring conversation is. AS an exorcist, I can tell you, that the most common affectation of demonic possession is grinding boring intellectual dullness. Aron Ra, perfectly fits that example of grinding boring dullness. He cannot adjust to what he has heard; it does not compute, or in his pride, he cannot allow it to compute, so he is left with ignoring John Mark's cogent arguments and creating strawmen arguments based on the ignorant fundamentalist who he has previously humiliated. "I have humiliated others calling themselves Christian, so despite REASON, I'm humiliating you as well." Tell me when a reasonable man is supposed to defend arguments of people of his own race or religion that are IGNORANT?"
I want to pat John Mark on the head for his patience in the face of such grinding boring demonic dullness.
