Welcome to the third installment in what is sure to be a lengthy response to the claims and arguments made in the popular Christian iPhone app for debaters and apologists, called Fast Facts.

In the first two parts, as well as this one, I will be tackling the section of the app under the “Challenges and Tactics” category. There are so many counter-arguments to supposedly popular claims and challenges, and so much to say about most of them, that it will take quite a while to poke at all of them.

It might be prudent at this juncture to inform readers that I have been skipping many of the challenges, because they aren’t worth talking about, or because the challenge itself is a weak one that atheists shouldn’t even be issuing, or for any number of reasons. Some of these include “There is no truth,” “Who are you to say?” and “Christians are hypocritical and judgmental.” There are many reasons why I haven’t looked at these, the most important of which is that atheists should avoid getting into the muck in which they’ll find themselves when they start making these arguments.

With no further ado, let’s jump right in!
