an atheist viewpoint

thoughts from a non-theist

A mistake I’ve made

I know, it’s hard to believe that I would make any type of mistake*!

But I have, and it’s this – over at the pleaseconvinceme faithfest I’ve made the mistake of allowing certain theistic assertions to stand unchallenged for the sake of a fair discussion. I’ve argued with them as if their god actually existed, discussing the merits, or otherwise, of his nature without simply repeatedly asking them for evidence of his existence.

My realisation that I’d made a mistake came when I noticed that, while they practically demand an acceptance of the existence of gods as a prerequisite to comments not getting blocked or deleted, they are absolutely unwilling to extend the courtesy in the opposite direction.

I’ll not be so careless in the future.

*confession, I make loads of mistakes
