Here is a list of fallacies for the Theory of Evolution (ToE) as it is commonly taught in schools.
False Equivalence. We can observe simple variability within an organism. Colored moths adapt to changing tree bark. Rabbits adapt to their surroundings. This is an observable, repeatable science, also known as 'micro evolution'. The fallacy is in making an equivalence between minor changes in physical traits, to extrapolating large changes in the genetic structure. But that is NOT observed, &...

I’m confused. What use does an atheist have with deities?
Deities (in this case, the Hindu Devas) are powerful symbols of certain ideals or doctrines.

“The narratives of the Doctrine are its cloak. The simple look only at the garment — that is, upon the narrative of the Doctrine; more they know not. The instructed, however, see not merely the cloak, but what the cloak covers.”
(The Zohar, iii., 152; Franck, 119.)
“The Mysteries of the Faith (are) not to be divulged to all. . . . . It is requisite to hide in a mystery the wisdom spoken.”...
"Cathedral Catholic High School in San Diego has a new dress code rule for next year: Girls are banned from wearing skirts because they’re distracting too many men.
After issuing “thousands of hours of detention” to students modifying the length of uniform skirts, Principal Kevin Calkins sent news of the ban to students in an email on Friday, local media reported. In the email, Calkins wrote that the dress code exists to foster a faith-based environment where students are focused on...
