Answering Kirk Hastings: A brief interlude

I'm more than halfway done posting my answers to the ten questions of Kirk Hastings. I have some tidying up to do on the unpublished entries and I really should revisit question 4 to flesh it out a bit, but that's about it.

I'm not sure I'm going to dedicate much more effort to responding to Kirk Hastings. I have other projects to work on and, to be honest, Kirk just keeps repeating the same ignorant garbage again and again. It gets repetitive and boring to constantly respond to the same debunked arguments. More to the point, Not many people are interested in a response to Kirk Hastings. His inner circle at Evidence 4 Faith will probably just ignore or dismiss anything I say. He really isn't well known enough for there to be any kind of an audience for content blasting his "arguments" to atoms.

If he were more interesting or capable of actually responding to criticism, it would at least be fun to debate him, even if it isn't profitable. Sadly, the intellectual limits of his "replies" have been insults better suited to the school yard than an exchange between middle-aged adults.

It taxes neither my mind nor my research skills to rebut him. He'll no doubt consider this a "victory" in his own mind, but after trying to have intellectual discussions with him on Facebook, I'm finding it very difficult to care what he has to say. There are only so many times a man can echo the insults of a pre-teen before you dismiss him once and for all.
