How can it be?

Aparently Richard Carrier lost his debate against the dishonest william lane craig (unless richard carrier is being incredibly modest) How on earth could such a thing happen when richard carriers arguments are clearly superior to craig?

I supose its because william lane craig is dishonest and tries to use retoric over good arguments. Infact this isnt the first time craig has been caught out lying.

Im really disapointed and annoyed. I had such high hopes of carrier leaving the debate triumphant. I have so much less respect for carrier when he screws up a debate which should have been so easy for him to win.

How Jebus walked on water finally revealed

This video shows how magicians walk on water - it seems reasonable to assume that jebus used a similar technique

It just shows that theres a rational explanation behind everything
