Counter-apologetics

Counter-apologetics is the term used to describe the process of providing rational objections to arguments made by religious apologists. While this process could also be called 'apologetics' (based on the strict definition), the terms 'apologetics' and 'apologist' have become virtually synonymous with Christian (or religious) apologetics.

This redefinition carries implications about the burden of proof and additional concerns that seem to demand that a different, yet similar, term be used to describe objections to traditional religious apologetics.
