My assumption is based on her statements. You have yourself validated my assumptions with your commentary after your "I laughed out loud statement".Again, you're just assuming her opinion on things when you have no basis for doing so.
She is an atheist.
She believes that thought has more merit than non-thought.
Do you disagree with the above? If so, which one?
Yes she did, in the exact manner that I explicitly showed in my previous posts.She didn't define a merit system, or place herself in a higher cast, or talk about her belief system,
First of all, I laugh at your attempt to tell me what I have the right to tell you. Where does it end? I have given solid reasons for my beliefs regarding your beliefs. Furthermore, I have every right to do as I like and you have the right to reply as you see fit.and you have no right to tell me what my belief system is or how I look at practitioners.
Anecdotal evidence which I countered with my own anecdotal evidence.She made an empirical statement that she observed most people who are atheists questioned their religion and most people who are theists did not.
I find it absurd that you cannot follow the logical progression.I agree with what she said, as I have had the same experience. It does not follow that I think I am in a higher cast than religious people or look at them as ignorant, etc, and I find it absurd that you presume I do.
IF 1) You think that thinking has more merit than non-thinking (or less-thinking as the case may be).
AND 2) Atheists think more than non-atheists.
THEN .....*drum roll*
Atheists have more merit than non-atheists!
Not according to what I have defined as your belief system, but what YOU have defined.
IF 3) You consider yourself an atheist AND hold the above beliefs.
THEN *keep them drums a rolling*
You think you have more merit than non-atheists!
Note: If one were to include a few qualifiers such as "some", or "many" then there would be room to slide, but unfortunately none were mentioned.
