Willful Ignorance

This person has a strange theory that everyone is born believing in God, and that if you "lose" that belief to become an atheist, that you are being willfully ignorant. As I commented in reply, "funny, that's how I feel about people who deny evolution."

The author makes the normal logical fallacy of depending on the Bible for his arguments--it is a perfectly valid argument to those who already believe, but it will not win any converts--however the discussion in the comments section is interesting.

    An interesting counterpoint. You wrote it well, using a writer's frugality with words.

    Thanks.

    Heh, you should see some of my other replies to him. I am usually WAY too wordy, so I revel in your comment that (for once) I was frugal with words! :) *revel revel*

    That was an entertaining post. I've stopped arguing about religion because its hard to argue with people who believe that religious books were faxed from heaven.
