Demonstrating The Inability Of Atheists To Disprove The Eyewitness Testimony Of The New Testament

Every day I engage with many atheists regarding the evidence that proves the New Testament is a reliable record of eyewitness accounts for Jesus. Often these individuals boast about their superior knowledge and sometimes, they challenge me to a public debate.

The purpose in atheists demanding a debate through social media video sources, is so that they might make of show of themselves, and be seen. These individuals do not have the ability to conduct an actual substantive debate, so they choose a venue where they might scoff at the truths of the Bible and be admired by other atheists.

The way to eliminate the scoffer and determine whether or not they actually have the ability to defeat the evidence presented by the New Testament, is to require the atheist to write an impeachment of the evidence presented by the Bible, and expose their lack of knowledge.

Yesterday an person known as, “InfiDale3476,” on Twitter, challenged me to a public debate regarding my statements that there is no evidence to refute the eyewitness testimony of the men who wrote the New Testament. I directed Dale to an essay I published this year in which I list the 203 eyewitness statements presented to us by the writers of the New Testament, and to write an impeachment of this essay.

Dale refused, and mocked me as unwilling to meet his challenge for a video debate. When I stated that this is a common response from atheists without the skill to write an argument and impeach the eyewitness debate, I was summarily blocked on Twitter.

The following is the discussion that ensued on Twitter, and what led to the eventual withdrawal of Dale from the debate:

Dale’s final response was to block me and refuse to take up my challenge. This is the common response of atheists when they are confronted to prove their assertions that the New Testament is not true. Because there is no evidence anywhere the writers lied who say Jesus is God and performed miracles that validate His claim, it is not possible to impeach their eyewitness testimony.

On Dale’s Twitter feed, He also stated that the Pentateuch, the first five books of the Bible, are lying about Moses and the Exodus. Dale said that Moses never existed and the Exodus never happened. When I presented Dale with my recently published book: “Proving The Pentateuch,” and challenged Dale to disprove the evidence in this book that refutes his assertions that Moses never existed and the Exodus is a hoax, he also refused.

  1. There is no eyewitness testimony in the bible. It was written by anonymous authors, and it hilariously contradict itself, plus has scenes in it that have no witnesses. Now, how do those scenes get recorded?

      Really? Then how do your explain that the writers say they are eyewitnesses?

      Paul: 1 Corinthians 9:1: “Am I not an apostle? Haven’t I seen Jesus our Lord with my own eyes?

      Peter: 1 Peter 1:16: “We saw his majestic splendor with our own eyes.”

      John: 1 John 1:1:”We saw him with our own eyes and touched him with our own hands.”

      James, Paul, all the Apostles: 1 Corinthians 15:7: “Then Jesus was seen alive by James and later by all the apostles. Last of all, as though I had been born at the wrong time, I also saw him.”

      Mary Magdalene: John 20:18: “Mary Magdalene found the disciples and told them, “I have seen the Lord!”

      Peter: Acts 5:29-32: “But Peter and the apostles replied… We are witnesses of these things…”

      John: 1 John 1:2-3: “This one who is life itself was revealed to us, and we have seen him. And now we testify and proclaim to you that he is the one who is eternal life. He was with the Father, and then he was revealed to us. We proclaim to you what we ourselves have actually seen and heard so that you may have fellowship with us.

      Clearly you have not read the New Testament!

      • the authors simply make statements with their characters. It’s fiction, Robert. I’ve read the entire bible, and I know how it makes hilariously false claims all through it.

      • I think you are confused about what the nature of the New Testament is.

        1. In matters of historical events, the first area of examination is the text themselves. In this regard we learn a tremendous amount of important information from the extant 24,593 manuscript copies of the New Testament. The New Testament was written as a historical narrative, it is not a fiction novel as atheists assert.

        Is The New Testament A Valid Historical Narrative?

        2. The texts for the 260 chapters of the New Testament contain 203 eyewitness statements from the writers. Your idea that “the authors simple make statements with their characters,” is incorrect. The New Testament is not a novel. It is a historical narrative. The New Testament was not written as fiction, it is composed with facts that are only possible if the writers saw the events and are recounting what they saw.

        3. The New Testament has been subjected to rigorous forensic examination, using techniques utilized by the FBI in determining fraud or truth in written statements. In this regard, the techniques used in examination of the New Testament, proves the writers are telling the truth.

        How Forensic Evidence Proves The New Testament Is Historical And Reliable

        4. In matters of history there is no higher or more reliable form of evidence than eyewitnesses who saw and heard the things that are recorded. The New Testament meets the high bar of requirement for valid evidence that would be accepted in a court of law.

        The following is an essay that details the facts of the legal evidence for the New Testament:

        From your comments you appear to be subjective in your opinions, and are wilfully ignoring the evidence. This tells me that the above evidence that I noted in this response, will be ignored by you and you will attempt to further scoff at anything that is stated regarding the reliability of the New Testament.

        This avenue of criticism is often observed coming from atheists. When atheists assert there is no evidence for God, when evidence is presented that passes every legal, historical, and forensic requirement, atheist often disregard this evidence.

        I sincerely hope that you will not continue to take this approach. The New Testament writers clearly saw the things they recorded, and there is no evidence anywhere they lied, fabricate, or embellished any of their narratives.
