Used to be a Scientologist, I could take a picture of my old membership card to prove it. However since then I am kind of neutral on religon since I find that people ruin it for everyone else.

So I basically invited them, no... told them to rage at me.

That's when they realize I was correct. :s


I understand the perspective you're trying to convey. In a formal debate, however, you would come across a syntax issue, and as a result a very astute arguer would be able to disallow your point, based upon that logical error.

While it is quite probable that what you're proposing may indeed be what is going on, there is enough of a possibility that the person may merely be the type to find offense at anything sacrilegious, for no further reason than they were conditioned to defy heretical jabs at their beliefs, in Crusader fashion, and be a hero for the faith.

It goes both ways: Some scientists are highly defensive about evolution (rightly so, in my opinion), and even though they have plenty of evidence to back them up, if the Intelligent Design proponents decided to inject the statement you just did, i.e.: "If evolution was such an ironclad fact, you wouldn't be trying so hard to convince me of it and get frustrated about the persistence of support for Intelligent Design. That just proves it isn't a fact."

Get it?

But there isn't a man in the sky, though there are fossil records.

That's why what I said is 1 sided, and it works.

The Intelligent Design people don't dispute the existence of fossils, but how they are dated. They also reason about concepts like irreducible complexity and the few scientists on their side can sell it very convincingly.

For example:

Don't have an official religion. I don't really care for organized religion because too many people hide behind it or are hypocrites going against their very own religion in various ways among other reasons. I just take all of my beliefs from various sources and don't need anything more than that. When it comes to God specifically I do not say he doesn't exist nor do I say he does because it really just doesn't make any difference in my opinion.
