Question about the Postmodernists/Christian Debate
I do quite a bit of debating on a local newsforum. Recently, I have encountered this one poster, who is an Evangelical Christian, that is constantly ranting about what he calls, the Post Modernist Thinkers, in fact, there is hardly a sentence in any of the posts, that Post Modernist Thinkers, is not included with a derogatory reference. Now, I have heard the term Post-Modernism before, and am aware of some of the philosophers associated with the movement (although some of my reading seems to indicate that Post-Modernism is a very broad term) but out of curiousity, I googled a few keywords, and I got back several Christian websites that also have very lengthy articles about the dangers of Post-Modernism and the threat to Christianity that it poses. However, all the references on these websites were very vague as to what those dangers could be. There was also mention of a couple of books, from Christian professors, that proclaimed a way to prove Post Modernists wrong and how to debunk Post Modernism. Now, I am wondering if anyone can tell me why certain theological movements seem to be so obsessed with Post Modernism and why they perceive it as such a threat ?Although every Christian website that I stumbled across, claimed to have irrefutable evidence (I seriously doubt that) against Post-Modernism they never made clear that evidence. I even searched to see if their was any self-identified Post Modernists, to see if their was any rebuttal and it did not yield any results. Does anyone out there have any further information about this ?
