The most important point in discussions on religion is that those on the Christian side, regardless of how they practice their faith, still have the burden of proof when presenting why they believe what they believe.<br /> <br /> Part 1 of this series (if you haven’t seen it yet!)<br /> <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qC_e99nTH98">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qC_e99nTH98</a><br /> <br /> References/Sources:<br /> <br /> Jefferson Bethke – “Top 4 Myths About The Christmas Story | Jefferson Bethke”<br /> <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xWmFOyi9rJU">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xWmFOyi9rJU</a><br /> Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy (2014). “No True Scotsman Fallacy.” Fallacies<br /> <a href="http://www.iep.utm.edu/fallacy/#NoTrueScotsman">http://www.iep.utm.edu/fallacy/#NoTrueScotsman</a><br /> TheraminTrees – No True Scotsman<br /> <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_HJrAaGJudw">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_HJrAaGJudw</a><br /> The Thinking Atheist (2014). “The Nativity Story.” Bible Contradictions.<br /> <a href="http://www.thethinkingatheist.com/page/bible-contradictions#NativityStory">http://www.thethinkingatheist.com/page/bible-contradictions#NativityStory</a><br /> <br /> Tags: “Fundies, Fakes, &amp; Other So-Called Christians”, “Fundies, Fakes, &amp; Other So Called Christians | Jefferson Bethke”, "Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus", Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus || Spoken Word, Why I Hate Religion But Love Jesus, Jefferson Bethke, bball1989, Jefferson Bethke video response, Why I Hate Religion, Jesus, no true Scotsman, no true Scotsman fallacy, having your cake and eating it too, Why I Hate Religion But Love Reality, atheism, atheist, Jesus is greater than religion, word, poetry, poem, spoken word, Jesus Christ, religious criticism, religion, God, Gods, deity, skepticism, skeptic, messiah, fundamentalism, fundamentalist, fundamentalists, fake Christians, fake Christianity, criticism of religion, criticism of Christianity, Christianity, Christian, Christian faith, Christian denominations, Bible, Holy Bible, The Fantastic Skeptic, EducationIsCool<br /> <br /> FOLLOW ME:<br /> Twitter: <a href="https://twitter.com/EducationIsC00L">https://twitter.com/EducationIsC00L</a><br /> Facebook: <a href="https://www.facebook.com/eicyoutube">https://www.facebook.com/eicyoutube</a><br /> Tumblr: <a href="http://educationiscool.tumblr.com/">http://educationiscool.tumblr.com/</a> Believe in God so you can believe God exists tag:www.atheistnexus.org,2014-02-22:2182797:Video:2385497 2014-02-22T21:54:52.762Z STA http://www.atheistnexus.org/profile/STA <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/believe-in-god-so-you-can-believe-god-exists"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/fweuCOUfGgbitOl9eOxwkNmytj*qVJ-HVD1cvSo1L52HHcGau7mS04CFXT2FndVjexeH2h-jydVVUjTqQnsuUY8Es3C1aOA6/1055028694.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>A short video to illustrate a point on my blog: <a href="http://thesmalltownatheist.blogspot.com/2014/02/seek-and-you-will-find.html">http://thesmalltownatheist.blogspot.com/2014/02/seek-and-you-will-find.html</a> TA short video to illustrate a point on my blog:… <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/believe-in-god-so-you-can-believe-god-exists"><br /> <img src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/fweuCOUfGgbitOl9eOxwkNmytj*qVJ-HVD1cvSo1L52HHcGau7mS04CFXT2FndVjexeH2h-jydVVUjTqQnsuUY8Es3C1aOA6/1055028694.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240" height="180" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a><br />A short video to illustrate a point on my blog: <a href="http://thesmalltownatheist.blogspot.com/2014/02/seek-and-you-will-find.html">http://thesmalltownatheist.blogspot.com/2014/02/seek-and-you-will-find.html</a> TA short video to illustrate a point on my blog: <a href="http://thesmalltownatheist.blogspot.com/2014/02/seek-and-you-will-find.html">http://thesmalltownatheist.blogspot.com/2014/02/seek-and-you-will-find.html</a><br /> <br /> Theists often start with belief then seek reasons to justify that belief. Many Christians do this, and don't see the logical fallacy of first having to accept God's existence in the first place in order to believe in him.<br /> <br /> This video is made up of examples in the Ham/Nye debate in which Ken Ham states numerous times that he starts his belief with a belief that can't be questioned. And he's supposed to be the intellectually honest one?

The Atheist Experience is produced by the Atheist Community of Austin.<br /> <br /> The Atheist Community of Austin is organized as a nonprofit educational corporation to develop and support the atheist community, to provide opportunities for socializing and friendship, to promote secular viewpoints, to encourage positive atheist culture, to defend the first amendment principle of state-church separation, to oppose discrimination against atheists and to work with other organizations in pursuit of common goals.<br /> <br /> We define atheism as the lack of belief in gods. This definition also encompasses what most people call agnosticism.<br /> <br /> <br /> VISIT THE ACA'S OFFICIAL WEB SITES<br /> <br /> ► <a href="http://www.atheist-community.org">http://www.atheist-community.org</a> (The Atheist Community of Austin)<br /> ► <a href="http://www.atheist-experience.com">http://www.atheist-experience.com</a> (The Atheist Experience TV Show)<br /> <br /> More shows and video clips can be found in the archive:<br /> ► <a href="http://www.atheist-experience.com/archive">http://www.atheist-experience.com/archive</a><br /> <br /> DVDs of the Atheist Experience can be purchased via:<br /> ► <a href="http://www.atheist-community.org/products">http://www.atheist-community.org/products</a><br /> <br /> <br /> MUSIC CREDITS<br /> <br /> Theme song: "Listen to Reason," written and performed by Bryan Steeksma.<br /> ► <a href="http://www.youtube.com/bryansteeksma">http://www.youtube.com/bryansteeksma</a><br /> ► <a href="http://www.myspace.com/bryansteeksma">http://www.myspace.com/bryansteeksma</a><br /> <br /> <br /> NOTES<br /> <br /> TheAtheistExperience is a fan appreciation channel on YouTube.<br /> "The Atheist Experience" is a registered trademark of the ACA.<br /> <br /> Creative Commons license: BY, NC, SA<br /> ► <a href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0">http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0</a> Evolution is irrelevant to God -
