Fulton J. Sheen: The Study of World Religions

Moneybags has a post on Fulton J. Sheen's discussion of world religions. It's a particularly interesting show as it points out common errors of reasoning that people make when comparing Christianity to other religions, contemporary and ancient.

- Resemblances imply Imitations (which is a form of anecdotal evidence or false analogy)

- Primitive causes Original (post hoc, ergo propter hoc, which means "after this, therefore because of this")

Absp. Fulton Sheen had some excellent programs. I try to listen to him and Fr. John Corapi everyday on Relevant Radio. Occasionaly, I stick around and listen to Dr. Ray Guarendi (a funny guy with some great practical advice on raising kids).
