This is a conversation that needs to be had. Nearly every debate I've seen on God's existence always looks like two people playing a board game. The atheist is trying to play by the rules of chess while the christian is playing by the rules of checkers (and creationists are just pigeons who shit on the board and knock over the pieces). You cannot have a rational conversation with someone whose very idea of reason is completely misguided and incoherent. So in order for the God debate to go anywhere, we need to establish what the rules are. And if Christians don't want to play by the rules of rational discourse, then everything they have to say on the matter is already wrong before it even begins.
I do not pretend that everything outlined in this video is the perfect, end-all be-all authority on epistemology. But I will contend that what you see here is orders of magnitude more rigorous and functional than anything Christians have ever come up with. I've read several books on theory of knowledge, and it absolutely baffles me how so many "professional philosophers" throughout history have abjectly failed to see the obvious in front of their faces. The reason we "believe" anything at all is so that we can eventually use that information to guide our decisions. If your epistemic system cannot, in some capacity or another, help me to make real decisions in the real world, then it is irrelevant and worthless.
