What is worse:

A) The atheist's ignorance.
B) The atheist's irrationality.
C) The atheist's mental illness.
D) The atheist's arrogance.
E) All of the above are equally bad.

So for your proposed debate of various made up, negative traits you try to pompously attribute to atheists; first I will unfortunately accredit you with setting up what is known as a "False Dilemma" which the instigator will try and assume one of few options which an outcome can be, when there are many more possible outcomes. I will also take the liberty to make the thesis; atheists as a group represented by some of the most intelligent men in history, far from A-C it would have to be arrogance.

Please prove there is a false dilemma in what I posted. Thanks.

And prove anyone who is/was an atheist was intelligent? Indeed, prove intelligence exists if all of reality is nothing but star dust.

There have been numerous intelligent atheists throughout history who innovated science and philosophy, including Stephen Hawking, Bill Gates, and Einstein, which of whom all have an IQ of 160, which is the top 99.98% of the human population. Nietzsche, and Carl Sagan, and Mark Twain have all made marvels in innovation, and are commended in history; this applies "anyone"
Also Atheists statistically have higher average IQ's than religious groups

This fool thinks repeating his claims with question begging examples is proving his claims. It is not. Because he failed to prove his claim and dodged my Qs, he loses the debate.

I'm not repeating my claim, I provided examples that proved my claim. You set up the argument assuming atheists even have a significant amount of those qualities in the first place, which is setting up a self-fulfilling question, this is called Complex Question Fallacy
Proof
False Dilemma: Atheists could also be greedy but it is not included in the provided possibilities
Complex Question Fallacy: All of the answers inevitably benefit you, ignoring all that don't.
You also made a Straw man round2

Absolutely no proof, no logic and possibly, no brain.

Are you sure you are not Purushadasa? Or at least his heir?

Atheists have to run from Qs because they are dumb as a box of rocks, but to narcissistic to admit it.

>Reported vote: DNehlsen// Mod action: Removed<

3 points to Con (Arguments). Reasons for voting decision: Con made no real argument. Pro chose one of the options at the beginning of the debate and made a case for it.

[*Reason for removal*] The voter asked that this be removed, on account of the fact that the vote went out to the wrong individual. It is removed. However, in the future, if you wish to alter a vote, you may do so after you cast it. Just resubmit the vote with any changes you want.
