That's irrelevant to this topic. This topic is about calling people delusional, and why people do it. For what reason. Whether they can back up their claim is irrelevant. 3sigma stated I disregarded many of his questions, and why did I do that? Because they were irrelevant to the topic.
All I've mainly have gotten from people who call people delusional is definitions; medical, or otherwise. "They are delusional 'cause my dictionary says they are.". I can sit here and do the same thing about atheist members here on a slew of words. But then that would be me attacking, and disrupting yet when people here call theists delusional, it's all in fun. Or, it's been proven so, it's okay.
I called 3sigma an idiot and Jetson comes in and threatens to lock the topic. People call theist members here delusional, and where is the admin or mod threatening to lock the topic
So, all I can come up with is: self-gratification. Y'all still haven't shown me it's anything else.
1st paragraph: Tomato/potato. Apples/oranges. etc., etc.,
2nd paragraph: as I responded the way I did to pianodwarf: I never said or implied they did. I said, and have been saying since 3sigma inquired: the claim by people here is they are delusional based on what they state. No one has actual non-biased and/or scientific data that shows they are delusional. They primarily hold the opinion that they are delusional based on what they say that people here would find to be so
; based on their own personal opinion and relying solely on that with little to no actual evidence.
That makes them uneducated thus an idiot not delusional. Makes them ignorant thus an idiot not delusional.
Atheist: God doesn't exist.
Theist: Prove it.
Atheist: I can't.
Theist: You're delusional.
Atheist: The God of the Bible doesn't exist.
Christian: Prove it.
Atheist: I have all this evidence that points in that direction but it's not definitive, or 100%, and partially lies on my opinion based on everything the Bible states etc., etc., etc.,
Christian: You're delusional.
This is what I'm reading from most of you except in reverse. Doesn't make them delusional, it makes them willfuly ignorant, or uneducated. It makes them idiots.
Your last paragraph, in my opinion, signifies willful ignorance not delusion.
