A double header on the front page. Again, I don't have the time right now, but my day is booked tomorrow it looks like.
I'm probably not a good authority on this, but I think Father Jacobs' argument is sprawling, but maybe can be clarified in clip 3, around 8:45.
Actually it is very specific. He argues, well presupposes, that there is some sort of moral absolute. It only seems sprawling because he wanders around while never actually arguing anything except for this point.
At that time he takes a jab at atheistic institutions for not giving any authority for anything that is outside of itself; which is very specifically an expression of this argument for moral absolutism.
This happens to be a very common categorical error that presupposes that everything has to have meaning outside of itself. Through this morality becomes absolute and humanity actually has a specific, absolute meaning. This argument is basically derived from the same thought that expresses God as a watch maker and the universe as his intelligently designed creation.
I can't necessarily say or argue that his presupposition is incorrect, but it is exactly that, a presupposition.
Ugh, Father Flailing Fucktard makes this a real uphill battle to listen to. This douche over the course of these clips goes from being a wishy-washy double standardizing hypocrite to just being a belligerent bald-faced liar.
NSFW, will lower productivity with gut wrenching nausea and fist clenching rage.
The panel after the debate on the same channel as this video is, if not better, just as good as the debate.

They couldn't set up an audio feed directly to the camera? Fuck this. It's like having to sit through someone's in-law's vacation they recorded on cassette tape.
I got to clip 3 and I've had enough. Dillahunty has made much stronger arguments in the past, and Father Blather is going nowhere slowly.
