RE: As an atheist now, what is your lifestyle at present?
So, I started this thread with the idea of inviting atheists to come forth with their lifestyle as atheists, but they balk at that, instead they state that their lifestyle is no different from Christians who are not sincerely practicing their Christian faith.

Next, I thought I might inquire into their peculiar psychology as atheists, because on my part I observe that their psychology is one of emotional certainty (though not cognitive certainty) that there is no God, on the one hand, and on the other they have an emotional belligerent hostility toward God and Christians.

They also insist that they do not have such a psychology, and how would I know about their psychoogy when it is not something I can see into for being not patently visible.

So, I decided to inquire about their thinking style, since they balk at describing their behavioral lifestyle, and also balk at their emotional or feeling style, at least they must do thinking for this their website here is into thinking -- as witness the title of the website and forum, namely, thethinkingatheist.com.


Okay, what do I see about their thinking style?

It is one of avoiding before everything else to come to concur on concepts and principles, and to resort to evading the issue at hand, by bringing up some slogan or cliche which to themselves appear clever, however which when requested to explain, they again will keep mum, or hurl on people asking them to explain the charge of trolling.


Anyway, I will be back tomorrow, and hope that some really thinking atheist will take the initiative and concentration and persistent labor to think and come up with what is special pleading and how it is scientific to use special pleading as a ground to come to his conclusion as an atheist that there is no God.

I get up. I feed my son. I brush my teeth. I eat breakfast. I go to work. I work on my figures, do my research, and write my thesis. I eat lunch. I work some more. I go home. I eat dinner. I feed my son. I watch scrubs as I put him to sleep. I go to bed.

What the hell do you want from me?!!!!!

The above makes just as much sense as what you are posting in relation to the other members in this thread. Please, make a coherent effort to respond directly to the points made and avoid repeating the same statements over and over again.

Better without God, and happier too.

Well, no thinking atheist has come forward to explain what is special pleading.

Anyway, suppose you just give examples of special pleading in regard to the question whether God exists.


Just give four (4) examples, considering that special pleading is one argument atheists bring up regularly to convince readers that God does not exist.

I gave you a link to where you can read up on special pleading.

Read about it, come back and ask an intelligent question.

Start answering queries and behaving like a human being.

Maybe then someone will engage you.

RE: As an atheist now, what is your lifestyle at present?
Special pleading: making a special case for one argument that you would not or could not make for another.

Ergo, we can test the natural world around us and verify its existence, but god is given a special place outside of space and time and cannot be tested but is assumed to still exist.

Or

The natural laws cannot be broken, except by some supernatural force (god) that is either impossible for humans to detect or indistinguishable from random natural occurrences.

Or

Presenting an argument by saying that thing X is a type specimen of some event and that anything that meets all of the requirements of X are too, except for Y which only meets half of these requirements but is still assumed to be representing the same thing as X.

Or

Saying that the god of the bible exists because it is obvious, yet all other gods do not exist because it is obvious.

There are 4 for you to enjoy. 'Special Pleading' is a common fallacy scientists have to deal with regularly and is not some new definition or concept thrown at you to throw you for a loop. It was simply a fallacy you were guilty of.

Give in a few words the gist of the link, I am not in the habit of looking up links unless the one referencing them first produce a gist of the links: because in most instances it is a wild goose chase.

Or you go and join a thread where people do nothing but produce links to reply to each other's links.

And do nothing of personal thinking and writing.

I don't need people to engage me, but people who think and write from their personal stock knowledge and also from their personal self-thought out thinking.

And also important show that they have an acquaintance with the latest ideas, but not with links but with gists of what these ideas are about, and then if they prefer to produce the links they can do so -- and mind you not any links just because they are in the net.

Any nonsense writer can put anything nonsense in the net without any hint of serious thinking.



In that way I stand to profit from truly thinking folks, otherwise it is waste of time and labor with such people nonsense regurgitators of nonsense.


Regrets for being harsh, but that is an effective way to jolt people into genuine thinking.
