It's precisely like saying that because humans are animals and diamonds are rocks.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

That is excellent. I'm gonna use that one.



It's poetic, so those in touch with the numinous / sublime will hear "Saying humans are JUST animals is like saying diamonds are JUST rocks" To which I would add that saying tiramisu is JUST a dessert is like saying that love is JUST a chemical reaction in ours brains.

It's also factually correct, so atheists can agree. Simple extension makes it obvious... Saying humans are animals is like saying diamonds are rocks ... is like saying bananas are fruit.

I know that diamonds are strictly minerals and minerals are not necessarily rocks but rocks are made of minerals so the argument would continue... the banana is actually a herb and herbs are not fruit but fruit are made of her....

No, wait!

No
