I might get to it eventually, but for now I'm not. From what I've gathered from the responses, viewing it is very much a test and might even make you testy.

.... yes, I DID get that sentence out without a testicle joke.

Well, he starts out with an argument from authority, then says the bible must be interpreted correctly and only certain people can do that interpretation. (This sounds like the asshole Q)

So he sets up his little world of interpretation, i.e. post hoc rationalization. I'm sure it's all down hill from there, we see down this rabbit hole all the time on this forum. Weeping

I guess post hoc rationalization is the same as the Texas Sharpshooter fallacy.

Using the supernatural to explain events in your life is a failure of the intellect to comprehend the world around you. -The Inquisition
