Thanks for pointing that out. I didn't notice.

Here's what he's referring to:



His interpretation of this is that therefore all my beliefs about God are irrational (or at least illogical -- though I'm not sure if/how he might distinguish between the concepts of "rational" and "logical") and that I've abandoned Creation (presumably, meaning that I have rejected the claim that God created the universe). There may have been other things he's said (especially relative to the Kalam Cosomological Argument) that he thinks would follow from that statement as well.
Thanks for the detailed response.
