Thanks. All of this stuff just boils down to an understanding of burden of proof and how to think critically. When someone claims something amazing they have a burden of proof. You are not obligated to lend them your belief until they meet their burden.<quoted text>
This is so well stated! Spot on!
I will be using this argument on the street corner discussions I have with fundie Christians every Friday afternoon.
But they want to flip that around and make the ridiculous claim that we should assume their beliefs are true until someone proves otherwise.
That's not how reality works.
