Battle of the straw men

by Neil Rickert

Over at biologos, Karl Giberson has just posted the last part of his series against alleged strawman criticisms of religion.  He begins with:

The final straw man I want to torch in this series is the claim that science uses evidence and religion uses faith, with evidence being defined as “good reasons to think something is true,” and faith being defined as “the willingness to accept truth claims with nothing to support them.”

So, there he is, using strawman definitions of “evidence” and “faith”.  Whatever happened to the idea of evidence being facts?

If you feel like a little morning amusement, wander over to biologos and take a peek.

And a question for Karl:  whatever happened to part 5 of your series?  I don’t recall seeing it, and it is not listed among the related links of your newest post.
