John Loftus on the "Outsider Test of Faith"

Terrific lecture from Debunking Christianity's author John Loftus on his OTF argument:

TFC 2010: John Loftus from Zachary Moore on Vimeo.

I like the quote (paraphrasing) that it's frustrating to try to reason people out of beliefs they weren't reason into in the first place. I can certainly relate, and it was examining my own Christian faith from an outsider's perspective that led me to reject it. The OTF is a great thought experiment that should get any believer critically examining their own faith.

Also: notice that, at 38:54, he says he's a non-unicornist. I think we can build a movement here.
