I feel like I'm not smart enough to fully understand this post and make an equally intelligent comment that would be worth reading or responding to.

@spareseconds: Nooooo. I'll explain more.
The remark about the irony of it wasn't meant to really be apart of the conversation; just saying that it's, you know.. ironic. The real issue that no one seemed to have gotten: I say it is a double standard because the idea of "faith" is only accepted by them and considered a virtue when it goes precisely along with their dogmatic religious principles. I would ask them how the actual ACT of faith is, in itself, a virtue, and point out that it wouldn't be sufficient just to argue for their specific religious beliefs.

"Sceptics" like yourself have an innate bias against something real sceptics don't - miracles. And more importantly - extra-empirical evidence (like logic, philosophy, or morality).

Modern "sceptics" are as bad as Protestant fundamentalists. but their "Bible", so to speak, is "science". "Science alone" is the cry of the new atheist. "If it isn't proven by science, it ain't real!" Just as closed minded as a Protestant fundamentalist. Because, at your heart, you're really not all that different from them. Dan Barker may have changed from Protestantism to atheism, but he's still a nutcase either way.

Real sceptics can come to know, assuming they are not invincibly ignorant, that there is a God - an all-powerful, all-knowing, immutable, immortal, uncaused Being incomparable to anything in the natural world because it must, necessarily, be supernatural.

But, of course, you'd have to use your brain.

I'd love to respond and continue the conversation further, but literally every single remark by you is a red herring. I mean, I'm staring at a MOUNTAIN of false assumptions about myself and other atheists, here, and your comment is dripping with condescension. I'm afraid we can't really go anywhere from here because of such a poor start; you really should just delete this and make a more relevant comment, or just message me and tone it down a bit. No need to be a such douche.

There is nothing wrong with abortion so long as it is in the proper period during pregnancy where the fetus isn't for the most part a developed human. But if you're only talking about abortions where the fetus is, then it's an extremely easy yes, for me.

Plus, a world where people's inalienable rights can just be stripped of them like that is hardly a better trade-off for the current world at hand. "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere"
