Response to Can Atheists Simply Ignore Theology?
I think atheists do not ignore theology, they simply consider it insignificant in relation to what it asserts because claims without (conclusive) evidence can be dismissed the same way.
As long as the best theists can come up are concepts such as Pascal's Wager, the Watchmaker Analogy/Argument and so on, meant to be in support of what those concepts/arguments actually refute (ardent believers, in whatever, create a Bozone Layer rendering it impossible for them to grasp a concept such as self-refutation), their advertising keeps backfiring and we can ignore it for what it is - untill the day theists produce a deductive, valid and sound argument in support of their case, then it becomes interesting.
As it stands, the theist has been unable to construct such an argument in support of their case, while it's quite easy to do the opposite.
Explicit contains Implicit.
If what is explicitly posed is true
then what it infers or implies
must be true as well. If not,
then there's something amiss
with the explicit.
