"Many people are more informed believers because of the internet."?

"Many of us on R & S have become better Christians because we research claims we know are false or incorrect." - Why do people who give the least convincing answers here make grand claims like this? Who are they kidding?

    Chi Girl is exactly incorrect. the more informed people are, the better educated, the less likely they are to fall for religious propaganda. It is so very obvious to the educated. See the graph also posted in the linked thread, it shows exactly how it goes there.

    How odd. The quote is this: "Many people are more informed believers because of the internet."

    A simple statement, limited to exactly what it says: people become more informed by using the internet. This is true. It says nothing about education in general or about any "graph." Why does this group of atheists find it so difficult to stay on topic?

    And then they:

    1) add or change the simple sentence to make it say otherwise

    2) expand on what THEY have added or twisted

    3) and then are furious at what they THEMSELVES have claimed it says, and those who cannot express themselves effectively resort to childish insults!

    A very poor showing on their part, so distressed as they are over a simple sentence.

    They think appeal to popularity is a valid argument and then go on the internet and see a bunch of other Christians so they then go "All these people can't be wrong! Look how many of them there are!"

      More information usually leads to less superstition, thus atheism is growing rapidly everywhere where people use toilets (even the USA). Where people don't use toilets, religion still has a stranglehold.

    Accurate information and objective knowledge are the very last things on the minds of most believers. Sustaining the belief in the promise of an afterlife is foremost on their minds. Anything that doesn't support that belief is simply ignored, as is the fact that nothing actually does support it.

    The people who say they are knowledgeable without telling anyone anything? Yeah, they aren't knowledgeable, they are just BS artists.

    Look at all of the Christians who claim they have evidence of God, or "know" God exists. Then look at how empty their words are when you press them to supply evidence. It's all horseshit man. Pure horseshit.

    Chi girl is 100% correct, we don't expect anti theists to understand why.

      And you, Fred, do not see how bad you make yourself look by talking thus. Very childish of you.
