Seriously, has it really come down to this? Theists can't argue cohesively on the internet so they resort to petty tactics like this? I'm not a psychologist in any way (and neither is Christian the Christian), but it's funny how this guy acts like an armchair psychologist in a smug matter by slandering an entire group of people just because he has a disagreement with them on religion. In this video, I try to address his claims within the video as well as point out where he's cherry-picking.<br /> <br /> References/Sources:<br /> Bering, Jesse M. (2002).
