Sorry, but i beleive he was describing Christian teachings there.
If I misunderstood you, and you were not in fact scrutinizing Christianity based on your version of Christian teachings, then you mustve made your message pretty unclear.

Your use of fallacies in this thread has done a disservice to logic, and to humanity as a whole.
The study of theology, as it stands in the Christian churches, is the study of nothing; it is founded on nothing; it rests on no principles; it proceeds by no authority; it has no data; it can demonstrate nothing; and it admits of no conclusion.
-Thomas Paine

Go back a few pages, and you'll see it was him who began the discussion which was completely irrelevant to the topic we were addressing.
So in fact, it was him who commited the Fallacy by saying "you fucking NAZI", not me.

You moron. From that same article, on the same page:
Quote:
However, Godwin's law itself can be abused, as a distraction or diversion, that fallaciously miscasts an opponent's argument as hyperbole, especially if the comparisons made by the argument are actually appropriate. A 2005 Reason magazine article argued that Godwin's law is often misused to ridicule even valid comparisons.
It's been clearly demonstrated that TMBH's comparison was valid and relevant. Yours, however, was a total non sequitur and thus the true invocation of Godwin. That's why you fail.

I'm totally dumbfounded that someone could be so fucking dense.

That's what you get when parents read to their kids from the Bible instead of The Golden Compass.

So calling someone a fucking NAZI based on the falsehood that I had said "all non-Christian books shoul be published", is perfectly okay
I never held that to be true, and never will.
So under the circumstances, it was completely inappropriate to make such a comparison.

I think he's a front runner for the next host of The View, however.

Do you even know what a comparison means, or are you just a walking-talking slippery slope?
