Rather than apologizing for claiming that Dr. Ergun Caner's critics were engaging in libel and slander, Dr. Norman Geisler has decided to make an attempt to defend Dr. Ergun Caner (link to attempted defense). In the following series of posts, we'll examine Dr. Geisler's defense of Dr. Caner to determine whether it has any merit. The first thing I want to point out is that Dr. Geisler provides no primary source material to corroborate anything that Dr. Caner has said, with one exception. The one exception is a citation to the Koran: "Surah 2:51." We'll address that one in turn in one of the following posts. But the bottom line is this, Dr. Geisler provides no new primary source material, such that the pool of evidence is increased. Nevertheless, he provides a certain amount of commentary and reference to alleged further information, and we'll address that in the posts that follow.
