    Good example of testimonies, witnesses of the holy ghost, from other religions. And thanks for pointing out the divine witness fallacies. BTW, what do you think of this conversation between Matt Dillahunty and a Mormon holding to the religion?

      “that’s true, but it still hurts”, my favourite quote from that video.

      Thanks for commenting.
