What is the "Genetic Fallacy"? - Interview with Dr. William Lane Craig

" You only believe Christianity because you were raised in America!"

"The only reason that you believe in Jesus is because you parents are Christians!"

These are textbook examples of the"Genetic Fallacy", a well know informal logical mistake, which means to disbelieve something based upon where the belief originated from.  No matter whether it comes from a comic book or from a Phd professor, the truth is the truth.  Listen to Dr. Craig as he gives a concise description of the "Genetic Fallacy", and hopefully it will help you to spot it the next time it is thrown at you.
