Why do atheists have difficulty thinking for themselves?

It's always like:

"Richard Harris says..", or

"Sam Hawkins says..", or

"Christopher Dawkins says..", or

"Stephen Krauss says.."

"Lawrence Hitchens says..".

Like they can't think for themselves.. why?

    Because they'd rather commit the fallacy of appealing to authority rather than admitting that they have neither logic nor evidence to shore up their fantasy that there is no God.

    Why do Christians have difficulty thinking for themselves.

    "The Pope says..." or "My pastor says..." or "The Bible says..." or "Kent Hovind says...".

    Like can't they think for themselves..why?

    People quoting a mangled name like "Sam Hawkins", "Christopher Dawkins", "Stephen Krauss", "Lawrence Hitchens", or "Richard Harris" are generally trolls, not atheists.

    Atheists never say that. Lying Christians pretend they do. Why are Christians such compulsive liars?

  • I don't know any of those people and I don't care about those people.

    I have never quoted any of them.

    I can get my point across without the help of anyone else.

    How about that, you dummy?

    It's almost like theists who quote the Bible except that the atheists' sources actually make sense.

      You mean something likeΒ  Numbers 22:28 And the LORD opened the mouth of the ***, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times?

    I was atheist before I even heard of them, and never read anything written by them, nor heard them speak nor interviewed. This question certainly doesn't apply to me. The basis of religions is NOT thinking for yourselves, so this question is the height of ridiculous.
