The Christian worldview is not a mere assumption. It is the worldview that makes knowledge possible (Proverbs 1:7; Colossians 2:3). It alone provides the justification for those things we need for reasoning—such as laws of logic and uniformity.
Logic is a very valuable tool, particularly for the Christian who wants to defend his or her faith better. Mistakes in reasoning are called “logical fallacies,” and they abound in origins debates.
The common accusation that the presuppositionalist uses circular reasoning is actually true. In fact, everyone uses some degree of circular reasoning when defending his ultimate standard (though not everyone realizes this fact).
The straw-man fallacy is when a person misrepresents his opponent’s position and then proceeds to refute that misrepresentation rather than what his opponent actually claims.
Logic can be a valuable tool for Christians to defend their faith. But mistakes in reasoning can derail even the best argument.
We are right only because God has taught us to know what is right. How quickly we can forget that.
Quote mining means fudging facts or leaving out crucial details that misrepresent the meaning of the quote.
What does it really mean to be an expert, anyway? If we can’t rely 100% on anybody, how can we speak with confidence outside the Bible?
The universe is full of change; almost everything in the physical universe is constantly changing. Yet, we all assume that the laws of nature do not.
