Dave You lied about what my response was. You claimed I said “magic” was how it works. When you could not show where I said “Magic” was how it works, you changed your lie to, it works “simply because”. What I actually said was “ because God allows it to work”, which is the basis of a theist perspective. You then responded with “ Well put. There's a term for something that only works on those predisposed to accept it. It's called confirmation bias”. To which I responded by saying that is an understandable reaction from an atheist. Because the atheist does not believe in, or accept God, which as a consequence, the atheist does not accept any information that informs one of God’s character. As far as the atheist is concerned, he or she, sees nothing that relates to God. Am I correct so far? So when I say “ because God allows it to”, I am responding from the the same platform of my perspective, like you do from yours. So what we are left is an atheist perspective, and a theist perspective. The atheist, by definition lacks a belief in God, and so, is not in the same position as someone who does not lack a belief in God. So when I said, the atheist cannot comprehend the theist reaction, because they are atheist. I am not attacking the atheist. I am basing it on the definition, in conjunction with this specific dialogue. In short, it doesn’t matter what I, or any theist on this planet says on this subject matter, the atheist is predisposed to not accepting. If the atheist should accept, then the person is not an atheist. An atheist cannot, by definition, ever accept God, or theism. Jan.
