I damn sure won't be purchasing that video if it includes more footage of those dancing cult babies.

SaintStephen transcribed:

"I want to base everything on the bible... and you'd say "Why do you want to do that?"... and I'd say, well, as it says here in Romans... but then you'd say I can't just flip to a verse in the Bible, because that would be begging the question... Well I'd say the same thing about reason... if a person says I want to base everything on reason... then I say "Why do you want to do that?"... When he turns to give me a reason, what is he doing? He's flipping open his bible!"
So basically Wilson's argument is, to validate logic, we have to turn to nonsense. Truly staggering.
