I give below some posts by our friend Debilis which I have liked very much. I want to share them with the viewers:

Are you aware of the circulus in probando fallacy?

More to the point, are you aware that you are committing it?

This reasoning process you are defending is as follows:

1. Religious claims are false.

How do you know this?
2. Religious people are wrong, and cannot think clearly.

How do you know this?
3. They believe claims that are false.

How do you know this?
4. Because religious claims are false.

Do you see how we’re going around in a circle? You’re assuming the thing you need to be proving. Also important is the fact that there is no point at which any questioning of materialism is happening at all in here.

This is why circular reasoning is also dogmatic.

      “I can’t understand your words” is now a logical response to the pointing out of a logical fallacy?

      I apologize if my vocabulary is to large for you to follow, but the point remains valid. “Religious people are wrong because God doesn’t exist and God doesn’t exist because religious people are wrong” is bad logic–and should be completely dismissed.

      It is also dogmatic thinking.

      Mocking the fact that I use words that you don’t know doesn’t change this reality.

    You may want to qualify ‘the Atheists’ claim. I do not use circular reasoning, blog, and I am an atheist.
