Burden of Proof


I'm sure you know what that is Iconoclast, but just in case, it's the very simple principle that whoever makes the claim gets to back up the claim. Here's a link from RationalWiki for the more formal definition, and a nice video from Qualia Soup for all the picky details.





Here's your claim. I've highlighted the important bit for you.

In naming the god in question always helps to show that the theists thinking remains in the primitive Bronze and Iron Age as we enter the 21st century.

Kindly get on with upholding your burden of proof. Kindly try for evidence, maybe some citations and something that may once have been third cousin twice removed to a coherent argument.

Until you do it's all just

RE: What is the definition of God?
Someone should start a very visible thread where we post when fights are going down so we all can check and not miss. I've missed so many good ones!

In my humble opinion WD I think you made up lost ground with this one. [Image: lmeFItM.gif?zoom=2]

Okay, this is the time for you to step up to the plate for a change and prove my proposition wrong in that the Tanakh is NOT equal to the Christian Old Testament!

I will await your timely response in doing so, and don't forget, others are watching.

Why should he? Seriously. How about you demonstrate that? You are the one making the claim. Consider

Instead of shouting out your bullshit, you might instead ask a civil question.
However, I don't think you will learn to behave any better before you get banned - there just isn't time to re-educate you.



GRASSHOPPER,

Are you comfortable with others fighting your battles for you because you're a wussy? Laugh out load

His at least are getting fought, you gonna hire someone to fight yours for you seeing as how you can't seem to do it yourself?

Seriously when you go to insult people do you just think of ways you're a cunt and just accuse other people of it instead?

HEY ALIZA!

So, when are we going to get together and discuss your Jewish faith and how you personally spin doctor it to the way you want it to be? Remember, I'll acquiesce and be a good boy in our discussion!

I have to keep up on the latest "apologetics," and "hermeneutics" that the theists spews forth, okay?

Well?

A question has been raised regarding your beliefs, 21CI. Kindly demonstrate that you are not a Christian by committing the Unforgivable Sin: Say something nasty about the Holy Spirit that likens its works to those of Satan.
