Apparently, he did.

In my entire life, he "irrefutable" argument is about the stupidest from any creationist and I'm including the peanut butter argument along with some proofs for God by people with diagnosed untreated impairing mental illnesses that cause delusions (I can't spell it properly scitzophrenia for example)

Summary of his argument:
1) Without God, you can't have logic
2) Therefore you have no argument to refute my claim God exists

It's no dumber an argument than any other circular reasoning; let's face it, assuming your conclusion is true in the premise is not a sign of clear, focused thought.  And I've heard this one before, not sure where, though it wasn't this guy.

He quite adroitly sinks his own argument.  If (1) is true, then there is no "Therefore". There can be no "therefore" if logic doesn't exist.

Dork.

What is this "real world" you speak of?
I show affection for my pets by holding them against me and whispering, "I love you" repeatedly as they struggle to break free.

OMG, that is wonderfully beautiful, I think I will have to convert. Wait a minute, God defies logic, so how can logic exist if you can't have logic without God?

I think I just made sense. This logic stuff is confusing.
When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

So sad to see a great mind go to waste. His entire life he is going to be preaching the will of his "Lord" and in the end all of that will go to waste.

Realism is depressing for those who can't handle it.

Lol. Imagine even an academic conference.

Bob: Jason? I remember you. I'm researching binary stars

Jason: I'm in the process of writing another book

Bob: I book? I'm impressed?
Jason: Yes. I'm very proud of it
Bob: What is the topic.
Jason: I was explaining to atheists why the earth is 6000 years old.
Bob: Um, the binary stars I was looking at are 2000,000,000 light years away. Look Jason, I got to run. Nice chatting.  :police:
Jason: I know but God did some relative stuff
Bob: Oh, very nice. Look, I've got to run. Are you going to give a talk?
Jason: Of course. I'm doing some work on the star light problem
Bob: The what ...?
Jason: The descripancy between the age of the earth and the distance from the earth to those stars. The mathematics is very interesting, it uses a diract delta fundtion
Bob: Oh thats what that topic was. I registered for your talk.  >:(
Jason: Great see you there
Bob: I'm rescheduling tho. I mean, I saw a monthy python movie last night. I've had enough comedy for the week

5 hours later:

Jason: Hi, I'm Jason Lisle, I got my phd from Western Case University
Heckler: I bet they are shaking their heads now!!!
Jason: and I'm going to discuss how the earth is 6000 years old while the star light we see is billions of years old.
Audience: Bahahahahahaa
Jason: ...
