    When Stand To Reason doesn't have anything substantive to say, they just say anything.

    i was a Christian for about 30 years in many different versions. Lots of amazing things were happening when i believed in God with all my heart and with all that i am. Last few years even more amazing things happened 🙂 when i stopped praying 4 things and people and myself. i only gave thanks and praised God for all that He already did. i was feeling …how can i ask for more after all this 🙂  It took me long time to get over my fear that Devil might trick me and stuff like that. But in my prayers when i listened and waited for reply. I was keep getting the same answer : How can I show you more, when you are so afraid and you don't Trust Me. So i tried the experiment. I didn't pray or believe in God for some period and also amazing things were happening. So now i am at the point that i chose to be honest to the max. Do i really know God or i just know what people say teach about him or what books say what He is or What He is not.
    There is a huge difference with #1 to really know God or #2 just think that you know or just beLIEve in God. As long as you need to believe that long you just don't know. Just to make it more clear 🙂   :

    If you "believe" that there is a God or if you "believe" that there is no God …
    you are in the same boat … you believe in something that you do not know 

    i believe this… you believe that … you can believe what ever you want,
    it may have or it may have nothing to do with reality as such 
    As long as you beLIEve, that long you just can not know for real. 

     *If you see* that you don't know the longing may arise in you.
    If longing arises, then the seeking arises.
    If the seeking arises the possibility of knowing exists. :)

    If you really know God let me know how or ask (Him,Her,It,Them) to let me know 🙂 i would also like to know for real.
    Thank You !

    It baffles me how someone claiming such errors can be found in a logical text book. Here are some corrections:

    1. Ad hominem, isn't a logical fallacy

    2. Embarrassingly enough: Logical fallacies can ONLY be applied to ARGUMENTS. The "challenge" read by this guy were assertions. And he knows this, and still uploads this video saying how the "challenge" commits several textbook logical errors.

    If he's right about the challenge only being assertions, then the challenge CANNOT commit any logical errors! Thus, most of this video is nonsense, and a terrible way to explain logical fallacies.

    My humble advice:

    Take philosophy and logic more seriously

    Typical atheist nonsense about all ancient people being brainless morons. This has been disproven time and time again, yet keeps getting repeated.

    If the challenge merely made assertions, which Shlemon admits repeatedly, then it didn't commit any logical fallacies. To use faulty reasoning, one must first be reasoning.
