    Funny, that definition would work for insanity too.

    From the perspective of a brainwashed believer, yes.

    This worn canard again? First of all correlation is not a causality. And just for the record, Jews have about the same correlation with intelligence as atheists. Last time I checked Judaism was still a religion. So we have counter example of a religious group, Jews, with the same correlation to IQ as atheists which is evidence against a causal link between religion and lower IQ.

    Freethinkers have fixed world views ?

    That is oxymoronic.

    And Jews aren’t so dumb as to believe in heaven.
    I have Jewish genes.

    Brilliant observation.

    So either high IQ causes atheism, or atheism raises your IQ, or they just naturally occur together.

    Take your pick.

    You call that a distortion ?
    You are a con man.

    So if what I posted was a total distortion, rephrase your post for clarity.

    Jews do believe in heaven. Although they define it quite differently than religions such a Christianity and Islam.

    Curious - how do you account for the higher IQ of atheists ?

    You avoided that.

    You aren’t addressing my posts at all.

    Just playing slippery word games.

    Answer both of those if you want to continue this.

    Faulty tactic #99

    Talk provocative rubbish to avoid actually answering any meaningful questions from the atheist.

    An example has just been provided for you by @Shaul

    So you think it is an oxymoron for freethinkers to be free to think in fixed world views.

    LOL

    Brilliant! That is quite the cognitive dissonance you have going.

    Oh dear, me. Dost thou stoop to ad hominem?

    I guess when you can’t prevail in a discussion that is to be expected.

    And thus you again avoid answering specific questions.

    It ain’t just ad hominem if it’s true.

    You have totally failed to engage in honest debate.

    I’m finished schooling you now.

    Post whatever final word games you like, you are not worth talking to.

    You see these things as faulty because your own understanding has been distorted. That is, you literally cannot see God because you believe he is not there, you believe in the delusion of the physical world. But the physical world is a shadow of the Real World.
