Where in the World is Paul Manata?

Paul Manata's "Aporetic Christianity" blog mysteriously disappeared awhile back, and I wasn't able to find him for a few months. But now, at last, I've tracked him down! He has been posting HERE since April.

I'm thankful for the work of Reformed philosophers like James Anderson and Paul Manata. Any Christian who is interested in logic and philosophy will find the work of these men to be an invaluable resource.

The video below is an old debate between Manata and atheist Dan Barker. It's both informative and fun to listen to.


  1. I’m glad Paul reappeared; but it’s too bad I must stop counting PM’s numerous blogs just as they approached the number of Elvis sightings.

  2. Mike,

    Yeah, he's an elusive character, but worth tracking because good Reformed philosophers are hard to find . . . in Paul's case, literally.


  3. Agreed. And I'm glad you posted the debate. I wonder what, if anything, he asserted in that debate that he now no longer affirms.

  4. He posted a link to the debate on his "Aporetic Christianity" site, probably within the last year, so I'd guess he still affirms most or all of what he says here. I like the part where he invites Dan Barker to become a believer.
