Tobin, Paul
Author of Skeptical website Rejection of Pascal's Wager. This is one of the largest Skeptical websites I have been not addresing, and for very good reason. I find nothing new within my subject purview to addres from Tobin's materials. His sourcework is dismal, often making use of a bare minimum of sources (despite a lengthy bibliography of mixed quality, which does not reflect use of all those listed), many of them badly out of date. He fails to interact with serious Christian scholarship, apparently thinking Josh McDowell is at our apex. I consider Tobin not worthy of the time needed for any further reply than what we have already posted that addresses exactly the same subjects.
