Retrospection of Evidentialism

Hitchens holds that some Christians faced with the evidence of evolution will state "well that's how God did it! That's how he created us." But this isn't a falsifiable argument. 99.9% of all life forms ever to appear on earth have become extinct as we almost did ourselves.


  1. I'm not sure I understand how this argument is suppose to work. Let's say God did create through evolution. Let's say 99.99% went extinct. And.. then? What does this show?

  2. Hitchens is not equipped to fully engage Craig on these issues. He's a polemicist, not a true philosopher. He's out of his league, imho.

  3. Trainer,

    I agree. He is quite good as a polemicst however.

  4. Yeah. For Hitchens, this was a suicide mission.
