If you get to define the object you reject is that not the very definition of straw man? I am telling you that on the topic of the Christian or gnostic God your definition does not apply. And if it does not apply to the christian one then dont you think your application of it to the other 9,999 poorly defined gods you lumped in with it as a illogical? And you did lump Baggins and dragons in with gods in post #90. You implied they both belong to the same “class” of imaginary things.Now you're just strawmanning me. I clearly did NOT include Bilbo and dragons in the class of gods. And as atheists we get to stipulate what we mean by 'god' when explaining the category that defines our position. If you want to believe in a purely material god then you can, but that is not the kind of 'god' any atheist needs to reject. Again, we can clearly be rational in rejecting a class of entities without being able to name all members of that class. Are you going to continue digging your heels in by refusing to acknowledge this obvious fact?
