Prerequisites of intelligibility


Over at Evangelical Realism we’re starting our analysis of Pastor Stephen Feinstein’s second post in his debate with Russell Glasser on the subject of presuppositional apologetics, and this week’s topics deal largely with the subject of the intelligibility of the universe, and the prerequisites for that intelligibility. Thanks again to Russell for setting up this whole debate, and for doing such a good job holding up his end of it. To get Pastor Feinstein’s actual assessment of how well Russell did, let me quote two snippets from Pastor Feinstein’s second post. The first is from the top:

When Russell and I agree that the debate is done, the comments will be enabled thus allowing people to comment on it.

And the second snippet, from the bottom:

No comments:

New comments are not allowed.

That about sums it up.

    “When Russell and I agree that the debate is done, the comments will be enabled thus allowing people to comment on it.”

    To be fair, he did allow comments after his “Closing Arguments” (which he had to get in there after the debate was done, just to get the final word) post. He let them run for about 20 comments before – surprise, surprise – he shut them down.

      That’s true, however his original statement was that he would enable comments on each specific post. Had he left the atheists floundering and unable to come up with a good response, as he originally expected that he would, then he would have had every reason to follow through with his original intention.
