Got Questions is an online fundamentalist Christian ministry which devotes itself to providing answers to many of the big questions surrounding Christian doctrines, general religion, science, and what the Bible says about such things. It was founded by S. Michael Houdmann in February 2002. The website claims to have over 300,000 questions answered, and says that 75% of all questions asked will be answered "instantly." To no surprise, Got Questions denies Darwinian evolution[1], supports Young Earth Creationism and seems to be highly skeptical of anthropogenic global warming.[2] The ministry is also highly supportive of the state of Israel.[3]

Further the website claims that "Secularism permeates all facets of our society."[4] Of course Christianity would never do that. Also, Got Questions has apparently found the foolproof methodology of proving Christianity to be the only real correct religion among the approximately 4000 which exist today.[5] This haphazard "framework" usually misrepresents every position that conflicts with theirs, among them being that Agnostics don't believe in absolute truth, Hinduism being Pantheistic, and most importantly uses the Cosmological Argument as the ultimate "Gotcha!" in its supposedly conclusive proof. Among the more subtle errors usually revolve arouns simple philosophical aspects, the most blatant example is their claim of "absolute truth" being self-defeating simply because 2+2 = 4[6].[7]. This Strawman attempts to imply that philosophical belief systems can be absolutely proven as Arithmetical truth.
