Debating irrational thought

There is a tendency among theists to rage when atheists tell them there arguments are horrible. There is an even larger tendency for theists to rage when they are in a debate which gets voted on and they subsequently lose. They then blame atheists for voting against them as atheists are ignorant and do not understand their arguments. Those same argument which I already said above are horrible and have been pointed out as being horrible by so many people at so many different times. In fact debating theists can be extremely tiring as there really seems to be no point. It really is more like smashing your head against a wall, than an informative discussion in most cases.

Now I still believe debating theists is worth it, even though it can be is frustrating. But I wonder how many theists realize this small but interesting fact.

If you believe in a god, but not Santa or that aliens abduct humans you are dumb.

Its really not that remarkable thing to say. In fact you believe in your god for reasons that you purport to be true. Now, I can take these arguments and insert Santa or alien abductions and these also become true. If this is not the case, then the arguments which you say are true are no longer true. Remember, that these arguments you provided have to be true for your arguments to work.

That is all there is to it, you either believe in Santa and alien abductions too, or you are dumb.
