Thorsday Tonic - The Burden of Proof
(via Friendly Atheist) QualiaSoup on The Burden of Proof.
Just after I finished up my post about the conviction, without evidence, of Catherine Snow in 1834, Hemant Mehta posted this excellent video about a related topic on his blog. Good timing!
If you've ever found yourself in a frustrating and seemingly pointless debate with a determined theist, here is a video which will explain to you what is happening, and hopefully help you to see how you can approach the theist in a way that might get hir to understand why hir "debating" methods are not honest.
Of course, it also explains why most theists are so resistant to understanding anything of the sort, but at least you will know!
(My only complaint about this superb video - what is up with the one-eyed characters?)
