Where are the non-retarded arguments for religion?
Theists often accuse atheists of attacking only the weak positions of religion, young earth creationism, biblical literalism, etc., while ignoring the more sophisticated arguments.
They never actually get around to presenting these more sophisticated arguments however.
In the last 5 years or so of looking into the arguments of theists, I have found that not only do all the arguments for the deity of their choice/religion of their choice anywhere and everywhere offered by any theist whatsoever fail to be good arguments, these arguments are blatantly, epically, rabidly, in-your-face retarded. ALL of them. Every last one, without exception. There is not, to my knowledge EVEN ONE SINGLE argument among those mustered by theists which is not completely idiotic. The arguments for theism do not just fail to be good, they fail to be non-idiotic.
Where are the non-idiotic arguments?
Here are some examples of utterly retarded arguments Alvin Plantinga, (well respected among Christian theologians, it would seem) seems to think are not retarded:
Alvin Plantinga being a pretentious idiot. Those are examples of the kind of blatant idiocy I’m talking about. You guys really don’t see what’s wrong with those? You’re that stupid? Really? Sigh. How depressing.
I suggest that, given how much a non-idiotic argument would be valued by theists, and the amount of time they’ve had to come up with one, and given the pseudo intellectual trappings with which they dress what few idiotic arguments they have managed to come up with, it seems to me very likely that such non-idiotic arguments simply do not exist.
