The Need To
Support A Proposition
Cliff Walker has done a bang-up job responding politely to this letter instead of pouncing violently on the unsupported propositions mentioned throughout. As an atheist I've had to deal with a disturbing fact; many theists aren't capable of understanding the need to support a proposition.
But why would they be? In most cases their very philosophy was decided for them at birth. They didn't do the math, someone else told them what was fact. This indirectly teaches theists to believe very important propositions without any supporting evidence at all. Then to expect a freethinker to do the same! It's positively embarrassing for them.
