Five Strikes Against Jesus

And no.  They can never see themselves.

What's notable is that the methods they use for coming to that conclusion in regards to other gods are the methods they reject when it comes to theirs.

But as you say, they don't recognize it when they're doing it.
"Well, evolution is a theory. It is also a fact. And facts and theories are different things, not rungs in a hierarchy of increasing certainty. Facts are the world's data. Theories are structures of ideas that explain and interpret facts. Facts don't go away when scientists debate rival theories to explain them. Einstein's theory of gravitation replaced Newton's in this century, but apples didn't suspend themselves in midair, pending the outcome. And humans evolved from ape- like ancestors whether they did so by Darwin's proposed mechanism or by some other yet to be discovered."

well, their own True God™ doesn't require that much scrutiny since, after all, he is the real one . . .
In the 1960s, American parents began looking to mental health professionals for child-rearing advice.  Since then, an exponential per-capita increase in child mental health professionals has matched a dramatic deterioration in child mental health.  No new therapy or drug has stopped this downward trend.

Yes, V.  Such is what passes for "thinking" among religitards.

Of course the problem there is do we use the plural form of Latin, Greek, Aramaic or Hebrew?

Complicated shit, no?
