5 Things I Was Wrong About

10 Oct
first things first: I was wrong about this hair!
oops!

oops!

1. ESCHATOLOGY

THE RAPTURE? YES. I even hosted a defense of it once (still online as of this writing). I posted twice on it: explicitly and briefly.

THE RAPTURE? NO. I did a show with Jeff Durbin explaining my views and another on BPR called Losing Faith in the Rapture.

2. APOLOGETIC METHODOLOGY

On October 7th, 2008, I posted a blog titled Why I Am Not A Presupper. I removed it because since then I’ve changed my mind as I learned more. Here are some examples of my thinking on this now from Backpack Radio and from my old blog.

3. DEBATE BEHAVIOR

I apologized to the ApostAZ podcast hosts after my first recorded debate with atheists: Apology: Part 1 and Part 2

4. IMPRECISE CITATION

Patrick Callahan showed me I gave a secondary (and not a primary) citation during a debate on morality. I noted this in my blog’s combox. 

5. YOUNG EARTH EVIDENCES

After writing a post, I asked for feedback. Jim Lippard helped me out and I removed some items from a list of YE evidences I had compiled.

ADDENDUM:
To understand the background story to this post, here is a partial transcript from a recent Backpack Radio show called First Friday Debate Review:

William Costigan: “Are you open to being wrong… about any of those three topics…?”

Vocab Malone: “I guess maybe it depends on what you mean by being wrong because there’s a lot of things that I already have been wrong about in regards to those questions throughout my life and including some of them recently. And there are things that I will continue to need to modify.”

My friend Wade Austin Padgett asked if I could name a few of those things. Therefore, this post.
