Unbelief Makes People Irrational
I've had quite a few religious conversations with unbelievers in my life, and it always amazes me, not just that someone doesn't believe (I can understand that), but the utter lack of cognitive thinking skills that seem to decay in those who do not believe. It's almost like an attempt to justify the unjustifiable causes one to adopt fallacious arguments on the one hand and a posturing attitude that makes claims to great rationality on the other. In other words, it is almost like the dumber these apostates and atheist apologists get, the more they boast about how intelligent they are. Now, if an argument, a real one, accompanied these people, it would be fine. We would just disagree about the subject, but not be capable of even reading your opponent's argument, not be capable of acknowledging a fallacious reasoning method, continue dodging questions that clearly refute what is being said, to change the subject when one is not winning an argument, and then to act as though it's the believer that is the intellectually challenged one is just plain pathetic. I weep for the oncoming generation, as it is filled with these cookie-cutter, brainwashed people. It will only mean the death of wisdom and all of her children.
