Mike, from my Youtube comments, agrees to a late night impromptu talk. Below are time stamps of relevant topics discussed.
1:00 Our thoughts about our last talk and the charge of condescension.
4:30 I remember to put Mike in the picture frame (sorry it took so long).
8:00 Confidence on today's evidence vs ancient evidence.
10:30 Mike's thought experiment on "Head chopped off".
13:55 Are the Gospels eye witness accounts?
16:30 Someone tries to "jump" into the conversation and it took me several minutes to figure out how to lock the room (sorry).
19:25 Who were Josephus' sources for Jesus?
25:00 The 35,000 dollar question.
26:00 Mike agrees some of Josephus' writings about Jesus are actually forgeries.
27:30 Minimal facts about Jesus.
28:25 Mike's confidence in the history of Jesus.
28:52 Major deflection #1?
31:32 History is not 100% certain ... so why so confident?
33:52 Is your confidence lowered if only 1 source?
43:33 Mike really opens up about our last livestream.
44:42 Does Doug have motivation to NOT believe in Jesus?
45:52 What is Mike's motivation to believe the claims of Jesus may be false?
48:31 I tell Mike why I'm not a Christian.
51:01 Why I have my youtube channel.
53:03 My "demon" story.
53:56 Mike's Eiffel Tower analogy.
57:16 What did you just say??? Skepticism critiqued.
1:02:27 Great question from Mike: Is my skepticism warranted? Deflection #2???
1:03:19 Mike gets very defensive IMO.
1:05:50 What would it take to raise my confidence in Jesus?
1:07:50 What would lower Mike's confidence in Jesus?
1:11:00 Does being stable, successful, content in life, lower one's chances to believe in Jesus?
1:12:28 I ask Mike what I asked my wife. "Why do I need Jesus?" Answer #1.
1:16:49 Question about hell. Deflection #3?
1:18:14 Would I be a better father if I was a Christian?
1:21:27 Why do I need Jesus? Answer #2 is much different than answer #1.
1:22:38 I apologize to Mike.
1:23:56 Why didn't Mike say to me "You need Jesus to avoid hell"?
1:30:18 Shouldn't we see a difference in Christians if Christianity is true?
1:35:20 I sense I said something inappropriate to Mike.
1:41:04 What would the U.S. look like if we all woke up atheists tomorrow? Deflection #4?
1:42:55 Atheism does not have the intellectual tools to rationally talk about good and evil.
1:52:11 If naturalism or atheism can't provide a rational or coherent ethical system, and yet still be moral ... then, so what?
1:56:55 Defining "good" using two different worldviews.
1:57:35 If God wanted the "greatest suffering for the world" is that good?
2:00:40 Is there any action between 2 humans that Mike would say is always, always, wrong?
2:07:00 Probabilities and Bayesian.
2:12:00 Does Mike think, that I view him as dumb? No.
2:12:32 Have you found any claim like the resurrection, that has better evidence? (Cam that question for you).
2:14:28 I view the gospels as a screenplay.
2:21:00 Paul is the best evidence for Jesus ... HOWEVER ... 1 Corinthians 15. Do you believe all of Paul's letters are authentic?
