Last month Tim – a commenter on this blog – thought up a cunning plan which went like this:
I’ve had a brilliant idea! I shall challenge Stacy on her blog to a debate as to whether Jesus existed or not, and allow her the first say which she will tackle with gusto and great detail with huge amounts of information. Then, when it’s my turn I shall simply concede the debate and tell her that she has won it as her arguments are too persuasive to deny. Voila! A post giving all who care to read it as much evidence for Jesus as anyone could possibly need and I have hardly needed to lift a finger!
And Tim, true to his word, did just that by planting this comment on her blog.
I’d like to challenge you to a debate on your blog as to whether Jesus existed or not. You argue for and I against. As it is your blog, and you are a lady too, I will let you go first.
Stacy duly replied:
Haha. I just saw that.
Yes, we can do that. I’ll set up a post, but it’ll have to wait a few weeks because I’m going to be very busy writing theology papers.
Can you give me a reminder in a week or so? Thanks!
And today Stacy began her response to this question in a blog post entitled:
Hop over and give it a read.
By the way, we did confess to Stacy that it was a setup.
