I found a link to this article from a homeschooling Twitter feed that I follow. It’s not surprising, because homeschoolers like to teach about logic.
The basic point is about a complex question and how it can be used to steer people off course or throw off an opponent in a debate. The age-old example of a complex question is, “When did you stop beating your wife?” The question implies something, so no matter how you answer, you’re likely to implicate yourself. You have to be careful how you respond.
This article shows some examples of complex questions that can be used to confuse the issue and make it look as if creationists don’t have a good answer or a valid truth to stand on.
This morning I got an email from CMI with a listing of new DVDs they have for sale, one of which seems to go along with this subject. It’s called Leaving Your Brains at the Church Door? and it sells for $13, but they have a set of 19 DVDs on sale (including that title) for $169, which amounts to around $8 per title.
I haven’t seen any of these DVDs (though I have the book, Unwrapping the Pharaohs), but many of the titles look really interesting. This set would be a great investment for a church library or for use in an adult Sunday school class or Bible study.
