Embracing Guerrilla Skepticism: Another Review of a Christian Book by Pseudo-Intellectuals
Susan Gerbic has spearheaded Guerrilla Skepticism on Wikipedia:
The mission of the Guerrilla Skepticism editing team is to improve skeptical content on Wikipedia. We do this by providing noteworthy citations, and removing unsourced claims from paranormal pages. It is also our mission to improve the pages of our skeptic spokespeople. Why? Because evidence is cool. We train – We mentor – Join us. LINK.
I love this and encourage others to join her. For my part I’m going to embrace the same thing when it comes to reviewing Christian books on Amazon, as time permits. Here is another review I wrote this morning of the book, “Holy War in the Bible: Christian Morality and an Old Testament Problem.” Link. What I’m doing is evaluating the sources they use. I aim to hold them to a standard by which they must engage the best criticisms of their faith, or I will call them out on it. This time it has to do with ignoring both Hector Avalos’s book, Fighting Words: The Origins Of Religious Violence, and David Eller’s book, Cruel Creeds, Virtuous Violence: Religious Violence Across Culture and History Upvotes would be appreciated.
