    There is something about christianity and I guess religion in general that inoculates against rationality and critical thinking. Or maybe the defect was present before the quest began.

    And yet you're the one claiming to be a pagan and an atheist at the same time.

    Deflection much?

    Your camp is afraid of critical thinking, and for good reason.

    I would like you to prove those points if possible, I doubt you can.
    Show me how rationality and critical thinking are not part of Christianity.
    Supernatural events you can accept or reject, but on whole, what is it you think is flawed?

    My critical thinking is struggling to take your OP, criticising other people about critical thinking, seriously, when claim to be both an atheist and a pagan.

    Have you ever considered the possibility that maybe you are the one who is irrational?

    google bible fallacies. For example. The field is so wide. But your last question:

    I should believe in your bible why now?

    Ummm I think that describes his position very well. moreso if he had just said "atheist" or "pagan".
    Surely you dont think ones spirituality should be so one dimensional as to have be described by only one word ..

    I think that if you are going to pitch up here and blanket attack Christians for their lack of critical thinking whilst at the same time claiming oneself to be both atheist and pagan at the same time, then one deserves to have one's chops slapped.

    I don't worship gods. I'm atheist.
    I do worship nature. I'm pagan.
    This isn't rocket surgery.

    Show me your critical thinking skills by sharing your reasons for your god-belief.
