Apologetics Press is a site that focuses on Christian apologetics. The site's editors compile topics related to Christianity, throw out the ones that don't agree with them, and makes the ones that do look trustworthy.

Apologetics Press seems to be written from a fundamentalist point of view, as they hold that there are no biblical contradictions. The site seems to enjoy archiving debates in which atheists have lost. They think this will make them more respectable because rhetoric is better than evidence. Who needs empirical evidence and consistent observation when you can just play on the audience's ignorance and persuade them that there is a magic man who'll take them to heaven if they believe in him?

[edit] Purpose

The logo of Apologetics press.

Apologetic Press's purpose is to make the scripture of their Oh So Holy and Truthful Divine Graceful All-Loving Merciful Christian God seem scientifically accurate. The site has stated what its authors believe, and then tries to bend logic and evidence to fit their faith.

[edit] Effect

Christian apologists will sometimes use Apologetics Press to damage what credibility they originally had.[more detail please] The site can be a useful tool to examine various apologist oxymorons, such as "Reason and Revelation." The site has a sleek design, having recently been revamped. Despite this, it still contains obvious bias and reversal of scientific method, the site is also a good place where one can practice one's knowledge of logical fallacies. The site's most popular ones are: the false dichotomy, non sequitur, argument from design, argument from authority and the typical straw man.
