There are many Youtube channels promoted by atheists. The goal is often to impugn the name of Christ, and malign those who love God and His word. A majority of these atheists who host Youtube channels have no ability to impeach anything related to actual evidence, but frequently invite atheist scholars to purvey their lies on these channels.
Shannon Q, also known as “Gigantic wild-eyed a**hole” on Twitter, recently invited atheist Hebrew scholar, Joel Baden, to her Youtube channel. I happened upon this video as a result of Shannon’s posts at her Twitter feed, and listened to Baden’s presentation on the “Documentary Hypothesis,” at Shannon’s Youtube channel.
Baden’s explanation for why we find the first five books in the Hebrew Bible, was unusual. He stated that we don’t really know who wrote the first five books, but we do know it wasn’t Moses. Baden insisted that it was likely four unknown writers who sort of “squished” all the events of creation together in Genesis 1 and 2. Not exactly a scholarly explanation for how we came to receive the Torah.
- Impeaching Yale Professor Joel Baden And His Views On The Documentary Hypothesis
- Proving Moses Wrote Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy, From Historical Evidence
I was curious about Baden so I visited his Yale website where he is a professor of the Hebrew Bible. I listened to the first video from Baden on that site and was awestruck by what I heard and saw. This video can be seen at a companion essay I wrote at this website. You can see it here, and read my impeachment of Joel Baden’s conclusions on the Documentary Hypothesis.
This essay is an examination of Shanno Q and her motives for the Youtube channel she hosts. Today I received a few comments from Shannon in which she asserted that she invited guests like Baden “for educational purposes.”
This struck me as odd, as the video I watched where Shannon Q hosted Joel Baden, was light years from educational. The entire presentation was largely for entertainment, and there was not a single item of evidence presented by Baden that could come close to proving any part of the Documentary Hypothesis.
If you review Baden’s video presentation at This link, you will see that he gives his audience comedy, parody, sarcasm, and many of his opinions, but not a single item of scholarly evidence that proves any part of the Documentary Hypothesis.
Shannon Q insists that Baden’s opinions can be trusted, because he is a professor at Yale University, teaching the Hebrew Bible. One of the first principles I learned in obtaining my own education, is that a PhD, does not guarantee accuracy, or truth. In the case of atheist, agnostic, or progressive scholars, their cognitive bias, always taints their conclusions.
Whenever a person begins with the idea that God doesn’t exist, and the Bible is not His Word, it is impossible to make scholarly, accurate conclusions about God or the Bible. If you doubt this statement, listen to Baden’s video presentation and read my impeachment of his assertions. You will discover that an advanced degree has not helped Joel Baden arrive at accurate conclusions. All of his books and essays are filled with his opinions, but very little actual evidence. There is no evidence anywhere that Moses did not write the Torah. All of the conclusions made by Joel Baden are based primarily upon his opinions.
Shannon Q precipitates the deception of Joel Baden by inviting him to her Youtube channel and endorsing his conclusions that Moses is not the author of the first five books of the Bible. This assertion, made by atheists, is extremely serious. If we allow atheists to undermine and call into question the veracity of the first five books of the Bible, every subsequent book that follows, is also placed in peril. The first five books of the Bible are the foundation of the entire Bible. Fortunate for us who trust these texts, men like Baden have never been able to impeach Moses as the true author.
In my impeachment of Baden’s views on the Documentary Hypothesis, I present actual evidence that fully impeaches the Documentary Hypothesis, and Baden’s conclusions.
I told Shannon Q that her guest, Joel Baden, is wrong in his assertions, and my essay impeaches his statements. I told Shannon that if she disagrees that Baden is wrong, she could read the essay I wrote and place her own impeachment of my essay at the end of the evidence I present. Shannon told me “No.”
The following is the exchange I had with Shannon at her Twitter feed:
The reason that Shannon declined to make an attempt at impeaching the essay, is that she has no idea how to accomplish this. When I suggested that perhaps her motives were financial in nature, she promptly told me that she doesn’t receive any income of significance from her Youtube channel. Then she proceeded to show me a chart from Youtube that shows she had earned $9.967.17.
Shannon claims that the chart below is her “lifetime earnings,” from 2018, till March 14, 2022, yet the chart she posted indicates clearly, that the $9.967.17, was earned from December 24, 2021, till March 14, 2022. Even if she only recently MONETIZED her Youtube channel in December, Shannon is still being disingenuous when stating these are, “lifetime earnings,” over four years.
If monetization was approved in December, this is when her earning history began, not before. Youtube does not allow a channel to be monetized until specific requirements are met. If Shannon was only recently approved for monetization, she should have been honest and told us. By hiding this fact, she made it appear that she has only been able to earn $9,967.17 for the past four years. This is not true.
The chart below that Shannon provided, proves she is lying. In fact, the chart proves her earning only recently began, four months ago. This is her earning history: Four months at about $2,500 a month, for a total of $9,967.17. This is Shannon’s true earning history, four months, not four years, as she stated. The first three and one half years Shannon likely did not qualify for earnings, and therefore, don’t count in Shannon’s earning history.
Since Shannon has clearly not been honest about her real earning timeline, it is impossible to correctly determine the true facts. One thing is certain, Shannon did not tell us the truth. She earned nearly $10,000 in just four months. This is motive for anyone to produce videos on Youtube.
By any standard, $9.967.17, is a lot of money. Shannon said that money was NOT her motive for her atheist Youtube videos, yet she has MONETIZED her Youtube channel, for this exact purpose, to make money from videos that malign Christ. Notice this income is from December 24, to March 14. In just 4 months, Shannon was paid $9.967.17.
UPDATE, March 18, 11:14 am: Shannon has sent me a new chart that she alleges, proves here income from Youtube videos maligning Christ, are a “lifetime” statement. This chart is significantly different from the first chart Shannon gave me that shows her income from December 24, 2021 to March 14, 2022. I don’t know which chart is accurate or truthful. Giving Shannon the benefit of the doubt, I am posting the new chart Shannon gave me today, you can make up your own mind which chart is the truth.
These things being said, the issue from the beginning has always been the fact that Shannon Q, intentionally seeks to earn blood money from videos that malign and impugn Jesus.
Jesus’ purpose in leaving His Glory in heaven, giving up many of His rights as God, taking the body of a man, living a sinless life, proving He is God by His miracles, dying for the sins of the world, and being raised from the dead, was so that by this infinite act of love, Shannon could obtain eternal life.
Shannon’s response to Jesus’ love for her, has been to malign Him and the testimony about Him—bring critics of Jesus and the Bible onto her Youtube channel—for the purpose of making a mockery of Jesus and the great sacrifice He made for Shannon and the whole world.
Even more reprehensible, Shannon Monetized her Youtube channel so that she could earn money by mocking Jesus and impugning His name and work on the cross.
Shannon Will Continue Earning “Blood Money” From Her Mockery Of Jesus
I did not receive any statement from Shannon that she will no longer make videos that malign Jesus, or accept income from these videos. Shannon’s desire to continue producing videos that turn people away from Jesus and condemn them to a future judgement for their sins, is inexcusable.
It doesn’t really matter whether Shannon earned $10,000 in four months or in four years, the terrible sin of making these videos at all, is the true issue. Judas Iscariot betrayed the Son of God for 30 pieces of silver. Shannon has joined Judas in accepting payment for her betrayal of Jesus. In this, Shannon fully intends to continue earning blood money from the suffering and death of Jesus, and this is reprehensible.[A]
Shannon and her friends at Twitter, insist that I am making a lot of money for the sale of my books at Amazon. I state clearly at my website that I receive no compensation for any of my books.
“I write books so that I might make Jesus known to the world. None of my books or articles are written for profit. I do not receive compensation for any of my published works. My purpose in writing about Jesus is to make Him known and allow people the opportunity to receive reliable information that will assist them in their decision to trust Christ, as well as those who already know Jesus, to help them grow in their faith.
As with Paul, I want to tell people about Jesus, without the motivation for personal gain. Jesus said: ‘freely you have received, now freely give’.”
I have never received compensation for any of my published books
Shannon and her friends insist that I am lying because, they say, I charge for these books. Anyone who has published a book, understands that they cannot be placed at Amazon or any other venue where they are for sale, at no cost. Amazon charges fees to publish every book, and every time one of these books are downloaded, Amazon charges for the download. Any money earned from the sale of my books, above the publishing costs, are retained by the publisher, to be used to provide free Biblical materials to persons in over 180 countries. I have never received compensation for the sale of any of my books, my Youtube channel, or my website.
I have a book that is nearly 6,000 pages, “The Messianic Prophecy Bible,” that sells at Amazon for $7.99. Try to find any other Christian book for sale at $7.99, that is this large of a volume. I keep the price of all my books at the lowest published price possible, so that everyone can afford to read them and learn the truth about Jesus.
The Peril Of Atheists In Turning People Away From Jesus
Jesus took it very seriously, the people who work to cause others to lose their faith in Him. He spoke more about Hell in the four Gospels, than He did about heaven. He warned that it would be better that these persons had never been born, who lead others away from Him. There is a prison cell reserved for those who ruin the eternal life of others, that is beyond comprehension.
Shannon Q and Paulogia, are amongst the chief purveyors of lies and deception that is directed at turning people away from Christ. Many people have already passed into eternity without Jesus, because of the deception of Shannon Q and Paulogia.
Matthew 26:24: “For the Son of Man must die, as the Scriptures declared long ago. But how terrible it will be for the one who betrays him. It would be far better for that man if he had never been born!”
Matthew 18:6-7: “But if you cause one of these little ones who trusts in me to fall into sin, it would be better for you to have a large millstone tied around your neck and be drowned in the depths of the sea. “What sorrow awaits the world, because it tempts people to sin. Temptations are inevitable, but what sorrow awaits the person who does the tempting.“
When Jesus recounted the story of the rich man, in Luke 16, who found himself in Hell, he described this place as a horror of suffering for those who end up there. The man in hell begged for a drop of cool water to soothe his tongue, and some relief from the torment of the flames. It is Jesus who tells us this story. Jesus intended His words as a warning for people who turn people away from Jesus and cause them to lose their eternal life.
I pray that Shannon Q and Paulogia, repent from their attempts at leading people away from Jesus. When He was here on earth, Jesus spoke of people who spend their lives bringing doubts to those trying to find God. He said that He will personally take vengeance against these persons and they will face a destiny beyond their ability to comprehend. The book of Hebrews recounts this warning:
Hebrews 10:29-3: “Just think how much worse the punishment will be for those who have trampled on the Son of God, and have treated the blood of the covenant, which made us holy, as if it were common and unholy, and have insulted and disdained the Holy Spirit who brings God’s mercy to us. For we know the one who said, “I will take revenge. I will pay them back.” He also said, “The LORD will judge his own people.” It is a terrible thing to fall into the hands of the living God.”
God exists and He came to earth as Jesus to show us who God is, and reveal His desire to save us all, regardless how bad we have been. Shannon Q and Paulogia can find this forgiveness of sins for all the harm they have done to Jesus and those who have already lost their salvation due to the lies these two have told. If anyone will repent, Jesus will hear and forgive. We all pray that Shannon Q and Paulogia, turn from the evil they are committing.
[A] “Blood Money:” The money paid for the Messiah’s betrayal is called “blood money” (From: Matthew 27:6).(1) See the full text of “Betrayed by a Friend
The account written by Matthew records these astonishing details, exactly as Zechariah had predicted them. When Judas realizes that he has betrayed Jesus and has caused His death, he returns to the chief priests to return the thirty pieces of silver.
According to the law, money that had resulted from certain events—often referred to as blood money—could not be received into the temple treasury. The paying of a fee to Judas for the betrayal of Jesus, which caused His death, forbid the chief priests from receiving the money back from Judas that he had formerly been paid.
You shall not bring the wages of a harlot or the price of a dog to the house of the Lord your God for any vowed offering, for both of these are an abomination to the Lord your God.(2)
During this period of history, women did not have personal assets or the ability to earn money. Often when a woman had made a vow to the Lord, her only means to obtain resources to pay these vows was through prostitution.(3) The priests were forbidden from receiving money that was earned by these methods. The intent was to discourage women from conducting themselves in this manner. This law was further expanded to exclude money that resulted from the death or injury of an individual.(4)
Although the priests were forbidden from accepting money from the hands of those who had been paid to bring a criminal to justice, a provision in the traditions of the elders allowed certain funds to be received into the temple treasury for the purpose of prepaying the burial expenses of an indigent who had died while in Jerusalem. On many occasions, the temple treasury was forced to provide a place of burial for a foreigner or the poor. According to a provision in Jewish law, the chief priests could take the money Judas threw into the Temple and use it to purchase a parcel of land where the destitute could be laid to rest.

(3) It should be noted that women not possessing assets or money of their own was strictly a cultural bias of this period of history, not a law prescribed by the Bible or God. When Jesus arrived on the earth He elevated woman to a place of equality with man
