The "200" refer to the 200 studies I talk about on religious experience.

Deist is one of the most fun hooligans on CARM. He's one of the most narrow minded and he's right wing. He are some of his previous exploits, also dealing with the studies on religious experience:

Hood is a well-known Christian,(Dr.Ralph Hood, Ph.D.,professor of psychology at University of Tennessee Chattanooga).
you are mixed up you just made that up. you have no information on that you even claim he's "well known" so you are spreading mendacity.
Hood is a friend of mine. He's not a Christian. It's just a convenient way for him to dismiss Hood. Hood is the inventor of the M scale that makes the study of religious experience scientific. If it supposedly proved it was bogus and silly he would be all for it. Instead it helps to show that RE is good for you so he has to deny its validity. Typical of atheists their view are not based upon the facts but their facts are gathered in relation to their need to support their views.
I don't know the people that he interviewed, as the people are anonymous, and I think the man is lying.Meta
you don't know anything about him you are making it up.
How is anyone to check whether or not the respondents were atheist if they are anonymous?
We're supposed to just believe that? The Christians here go on and on about someone who commits a serious crime as not being a Christian. Therefore, I am only using the Christian way of doing things by contending that even though someone may have said they were in atheist, doesn't mean they actually were. I would like to interview that person who claimed he was an atheist when he had this alleged experience, to determine just when he was an atheist, and what his family background is. I am quite sure that we would find that his family was Catholic or Christian, that the people he hung around with were Christian.
Now class what Have I said about atheist arguments? They are usually based upon either begging the question or incredulity. This is an appeal to incredulity. The evidence proves him wrong, he can't refute it, so he just refuses to believe it's real. These guys are not atheists.
What's good for the goose is good for the gander. I submit that anyone who says they were an atheist when they had this alleged mystical experience was never a true atheist.
btw thanks for the amo for atheist watch.
How can one argue rationally with someone who just refuses to accept counter evidence?
