Yesterday evening I had the privilege of speaking with @AlchemistNon over on his YouTube channel. Topics included deconversion, inerrancy, contradictions in the Bible, philosophy of religion, and more. For those unfamiliar with @AlchemistNon, he is an agnostic who has had a similar trajectory religiously as I have had (minus the KJV Onlyism, the stint at Pensacola Christian College, and a few other [horrible] things). His deconversion story, told in brief and broad strokes, can be found here and it is interesting in its own right.
What I love about @AlchemistNon is his methodical approach to the subjects he addresses. It isn’t simply his intelligence or breadth of knowledge; those are enviable as well. What he does so very well is to focus on the key issues related to a topic, articulate both sides of the issue, and then present his case succinctly and with clarity. He serves as an excellent model for those of us wanting to engage topics related to philosophy of religion in responsible ways.
I’m confident that in the months to come we will see some more excellent content that mirrors much of what he has written over at his blog. So, if you haven’t already, give him a follow at his blog, Twitter account, and YouTube channel.
