Fixed your link.
How to beat an Atheist in an argument

I'm pretty sure remembering seeing this before. I'm currently watching a blogtv show right now and will have to get back to this link later tonight.

It is and it isn't. People arguing about evolution and constantly pointing out ridiculous misunderstandings do make people look stupid.

Though it's not an attempt to make the person look stupid. It's often more an attempt to educate and correct a mistake. It's just the mindset make it difficult.

Are statements like these what you mean by "make them look like idiots for our faith"? Because that's not at all what's going on.

Uh, Mage, did you mean to quote me or pballwhatshisface?

Because I was simply pointing out how, in a very real sense, we are still Apes - the people that use the "descended from apes/monkeys" argument often use it in such a way as to suggest we think a chimpanzee pushed out a human baby one day and that was that.

I was quoting you. I was trying to find out if that quote was what pballaddict meant by making them an idiot or not.

I think he quoted you as an example in response to pball.

He meant to quote you, for that reason.

He was asking pball if people correcting their wrong assertions is what he meant by "making their beliefs look stupid."
