Agent: I presume that was a little debate jest, but the fact remains that in order to be religious you must completely forego the requirement of any proof whatsoever in establishing your belief. It's not a matter of generalizing any more than "generalizing" that rain gets things wet.

Zismo used a hasty generalization about religious people.

I rather liked this example of the appeal to hypocrisy(which is also, incidentally, an ad hominem attack): When someone tries to discount your claim by calling you an hypocrite, saying "that's like the pot calling the kettle black," it doesn`t change the fact that the kettle is, in fact, black.

Page 26 Appeal to Ignorance
"The burden of proof always lies with the person making a claim"
Religious people don't know this.

Great post, great little book, I enjoyed it a lot, now I feel guilty for not buying it.
