Hilarious, I tell ya.
Failure to understand that Evolutionary Morality is at odds with cultural and social moral development.
Failure to understand that burden of proof relies not on positive nor negative claims but on the person that makes a claim.
Failure to understand basic grammatical syntax and the difference between a negative and positive claim and how in no way does a negative claim automagically become one of ignorance.
Failure to understand that morals and religion are intertwined and one in the same for many of the religious.
Failure to understand that in a discussion of God, religion is highly relevant.
Failure to understand that one must support their argumentative points with evidence.
Failure to understand that just because one identifies with a school thought does not make him or her an expert on the field.
This is what I had to deal with.
