I agree with this assessment: it’s enguoh for them to uncritically cite a evangelical celebrity who happens to take their view. It's funny because believers are so quick (and able) to refute the arguments of a brilliant scientist, such as Dawkins, but they drop their guard and don't even bother to think critically about a Christian point of view. This is a bit hypocritical. I'm not even sure that's the right word but the same critical standard should be held for everything.For instance, my favorite apologist, William Lane Craig, doesn't hold to the annihilationist or conditionalist view. But that doesn't mean I should adopt his views on every topic wholesale. We're not members of a political party here where we feel compelled to agree on every point. We can assess the merits of each topic on its own.
