This is a question Irrational people

Freddie Woo tells us "I'm having to drive 500 miles to pick up my son from the ex's house because she won't let him take the train in case he gets off at the wrong station. He's 19 years old and has A-Levels and everything." - Tell us about illogical and irrational people who get on your nerves.

Telling stories about not liking a persons choice of theism is irrational and illogical and goes no where.
It is dull. Debate is futile, don't like religion start killing the followers, Islamists, Christians, Pagans all of them. As the bible says, if thine religious nutter offends thee - rip them out.
1) tell them it is god's will for them to die.
2) Kill enough of them, then if gods exist then surely those gods will have to intervene for their followers.

Science has no place trying to disprove deities, so don't use science in a theological debate. Theology will however try to hold science back from it's goals and to continue to spread it's silliness regarding science and established theories.

Example. "Evolution is just a theory." answer. "So is gravity, but you are not floating away." or "Fuck off simpleton, I cannot be bothered."

I for one am very successful in the field of evolution theory.
But that success has only come through prayer.

This is a weird way to look at religions.
As if each religion was just a slip of paper with a statement written on it, like "this god exists".

Religions do make testable claims all the time, like claims about when the world started existing, when humans started existing, whether we were made out of clay or corn by something, what there is in the world and what has been there over time, etc.

I understand what you're saying about the problem of trying to argue against an unfalsifiable claim like one about an invisible entity that doesn't want to be observed and affects the world based on an undetectable decision making process, but that's like, one aspect of only some of religions. I don't know where the idea that all religions that can exist consist entirely of unfalsifiable claims comes from.

Edit: so I guess what I'm trying to say is that it's possible for people to have irrational religious beliefs that are worth refuting/disproving. There's a crazy documentary someone posted on /links once about genetic biologists who are also Mormons. Can't find it now, but it's an amazing look at that kind of belief.
