You are expecting way too much. All of the christians, and other theists, that have posted in this part of the forum, with but a few rare exceptions, have showed no capacity to learn such things.

I am a Humanist. I believe in a rational philosophy of life, informed by science, inspired by art, and motivated by a desire to do good for its own sake and not by an expectation of a reward or fear of punishment in an afterlife.

Actually, THE Religious BoogeyMen -- The "Fundamentalists" -- make RELENTLESS (mis)use of "Reason" ... In Fact they are "Rational-istic" to a FAULT ...


What they infamously LACK is inter-Application of BOTH "Reason" AND "Experience" ("Empiricism") ...

Well, I don't go to the EC discussion board for reason or logic or the history of my faith.  :)

Knock and the door shall open.  It's not my fault if you don't like the decor.

The (so-called) "New Atheists" seem to me to have developed "Seething" to an Art Form, but it isn't something I care to learn, from them or anyone else ...

You need to lower your expectations. If they can't use proper English how are they supposed to master something like thinking?
