    Good, as this thread is not best suited for this discussion. I also don't agree with everything else you said above, but I don't want to get bogged down in an endless debate. I'll mull over the omniscience argument for a while before responding to it...

    Stefan makes his arguments against Gods mainly by logic. So these can be called a priori arguments (not assumptions). If the validity of a religion depends on the existence of a God, then the religion can be stated to be false by disproving God. I would say Stefan used to see very little value in religion, but nowadays, even if he thinks gods are nonsense, he sees more positive aspects in religion (like community and moral teachings that are absent from atheist world).

    Well, he has made the arguments against religion in his books and videos. I can't agree that he makes an a priori assumption that they are false. I bet it's more difficult to follow Christian moral rules as there are quite many of them. Not initiating aggression and not stealing are simple moral rules anybody can follow, and most do in their everyday life, but sadly most people also accept that the state should be allowed to break these rules.

    Hi @MahtiSonni Yeah, Stefan used to criticize religions much more in the past. If you follow reason and evidence you kind of have to. Nowadays Stefan has come to appreciate Christianity much more as have I. In the end morality is what really matters. I think it is better to derive morality rationally as Stefan has done, but if you are a moral person because of Christianity, the end result is the same.
