You make the standard Atheist claims of being logical and evidence based. You denigrate theism as if you have direct empirical evidence regarding its claims, such as the existence of a creating agent for the universe. And you must have disciplined, grounded, valid deductive Aristotelian-type arguments which categorically destroy theist deductions.If he responds, then we'll have a discussion; if not, then we'll take a look at his "FAQ" claims, using actual deductive logic and analyzing whatever empirical data he has to back up his claims.
So where are these to be found? Specifically, under the Enlightenment concept of objective, material evidence, what deduced, experimental, replicable and replicated, open data, peer reviewed study can you point to which proves your claim? And if you cannot produce these, please explain how it is possible for you to claim to be an Enlightenment-based, objective knowledge based, Aristotelian deductive logic based intellectual presumptively superior to non-Atheists?
And while you're at it, please address the darkest of ages, which were and are those under the Atheist totalitarians of the 20th century, some of which continue today. These were enabled by their worldview which is based on the superiority of the strongest human through Friedrich Nietzsche's denial of absolutes (Beyond Good and Evil), the belief in humanity solely as animals in herds, the absolute lack of absolute morals beyond those defined by the diktat. Please explain why these things have nothing to do with Atheism and are the dark ages of religious oppression.
Explain why it is that you have the right to judge others, but the people you live around do not.
" I find the very notion of religious belief ridiculous to the nth degree, and anyone who has set aside logic and critical thinking enough to espouse religious belief is undeserving of respect."
Please define logic and critical thinking, especially if you do not provide any disciplined deductive counter arguments to theist arguments, or empirical proof for your position.
I will publish all this on this blog: firstname.lastname@example.org
And I will comment on it, using Aristotelian deductive logic principles and I will analyze whatever empirical experimental proof you have to support your position.
Frankly, your claim to intolerance seems straightforward; your claims to logic, empiricism, and critical thinking seem to be unsupported.
