You think that's a dishonest thing to say, anyway. If you were debating a religious person and they told you that, you would think it's dishonest.

My local interpretation of reality. The difference is I know I could be wrong whereas you are just wrong. You have no ultimate authority either you are just too scared to look at reality for what it is rather than what you wish it to be.

What is your authority for this statement? Drinking Beverage

Your ultimate authority can't give you any information?? No wonder you're an atheist! Gasp

Oh, not so fast fella. My cat gives me loads of information. Thumbsup

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

You'd better offer proof of that. Cats generally aren't perfect beings.

3) Not defining what an ultimate authority actually is.

1. If you don't have one, how can you know anything? You have no basis
2. See 1
3. An authority that is the basis for all your beliefs.

And yet you don't know everything? Gasp

I know it when I see it, and if I don't, I try to find out about it.

No one knows everything. That only happens in fairy tales.
