      I can't say for certain that he hasn't. I haven't read the book in its entirety, and its tone is more academic than what I'm accustomed to, so it's possible I've missed some things. I recommended it because it's more or less entirely aimed at your criticism.

      If that's the case, then you're not going to find any "broad consensus." Only 38% of Natural Scientists are nonbelieivers. Even if there were consensus among them, I'm not sure what would qualify them to discuss it.

      Yes, although he discusses it in more depth in The Existence of God.

      Not that I can recall.

      No.

      No.

      Yes. Feel free to read the book yourself if your university library has it.

      With all due respect, I'm more inclined to believe the broad consensus of the philosophical community than online boasts yet to be explained in any serious detail.

      Essentially, Swinburne is arguing that properties associated with the Christian God, like omnipotence, ombnibenevolence, Trinity, and incarnation in the person of Jesus of Nazareth are the sorts of properties we could logically expect God to have. He does spend a bit of time arguing for the historicity of the Resurrection, but that's pretty much the extent to which he references the Bible.

      Well, if you'd like to see somebody justify the Christian God as logical, I'd suggest you check out The Christian God by Swinburne, which is built around that premise. Still, I don't think you can claim it's really self-explanatory when so many people disagree with it, including the sort of people who really ought to be able to catch self-explanatory logic.

      The sheer number of people who disagree with that, including the likes of Richard Swinburne and Alvin Plantinga, would suggest otherwise, but suit yourself.

      Turns out he had you confused with somebody else. Also, so as to respect the memory of Mr. Hitchens, would you mind this here? I'd like to hear some explanation, and I'm sure many prominent philosophers would as well.
