How do atheists rationally know truth from fiction?
Debate Rounds (5)
IF YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW TO TELL TRUTH FROM FICTION, DO NOT RESPOND TO THIS DEBATE.
And please do not respond if you have responded before or if you admit you have no way of rationally know truth from fiction, or if you believe you make up your own reality, or if all you have is "science", for science relies on the your senses and reason, which begs the question of how you know your senses and reason are valid. Perhaps you can tell me, which is fine, but if the way you validate you senses and reason is with your senses and reason, you lose the debate because circular reasoning is not rational.
And he still has no answer my Qs. For the smartest guy in this debate is sure struggles with reading comprehension.
So, this unreasoning animal's way of distinguishing truth from fiction is to put his faith in scientists. That is a new one. But how does he know his chosen faith is valid? And how does he pick among the scientists? More question begging, nothing rational. Anyone else?
Now, in fairness, he must see the folly of his own claim, for he changes it from faith in scientists to faith in the scientific method, but the scientific method relies on his senses and reason. How does he know they are valid? Hint: he has no idea.
I have answered our questions before, I have no faith because I do not believe in some thing that I have to believe to be true to me, I have facts.
The scientists I chose to take their information to be true is a large group that have done multiple tests, experiments on the subject matter. The rational thing here is that you have dumb excuses for not answering your own question by dissing other people. Read the comments!
I do not change it from faith to scientists, I mention your apparent faith to be fiction. A higher being isn't possible in science.
If you think I have such dumb "animal's ways" of distinguishing truth, how do you distinguish truth from fiction. You haven't supported yourself at all, I imagine you are some dumb religious freak that thinks vaccines cause autism.
The true fact of existence is that I do not know if its valid, you don't know either. Heck look at the Church of Last Thursday, you can not disprove it but it is a ridiculous idea to everyone but we don't know if that is the truth, it could be.
