    Here's a handy little list for you to figure out for yourself whether an argument is dishonest or flawed.

    I'm sure you will recognize many of your favorite argumentative techniques.

    Thanks dude. I find that very handy. After looking it over quite thoroughly, I even found a few that most of the non-theists on this forum are extensively guilty of committing. Thanks again.

    Yes, such fallacies are not the sole domain of theists or conservatives or liberals or atheists nor regrettably the cable news media and partisan press.


    But, then again, the vast majority of people cannot identify when they are being fed such, making them very effective tools. After all it was Luntz who said "its not what you say, its what people hear".

    No. If that was the intention, it went extremely wrong. As most who believe the bible, especially literally, don't do that. Thought that is.
    Even those that liked the post think the flood of noah as true. With all the cannibalism involved as well. Now what kind of thought is that? I suppose it is thought.

    Usually, people will not hear what they don't want to hear.
