I once found an interesting post on an atheist message board. It was offered by one of the regulars (named “Gnomon”) in response to another atheist (named “Naturalist”) with which I and some other Christians had been debating, here. Naturalist seemed to be surprised that we Christians were using the language of logic and reason to make our points. The following are some excerpts from Gnomon’s reply to him, along with my observations.
Many posters on this forum seem to believe that Atheists are rational and Christians are irrational. Therefore, they are flabbergasted when they run across a Christian who is just as rational as the best Atheists. I think those rational posters are deceiving themselves, perhaps to boost their feeling of superiority to those “stupid Xians”.
