Theists actually believe this stuff!

I dismiss theists out of hand.

Atheists are accused of dismissing religious people out of hand. It is true that I do this if they are trying to explain their position from a religious point of view. What it comes down to, for me, is the same as maths and science. You might have the correct answer but if your method is wrong or you can't show your workings then you don't get full marks.

In any situation if you are going to introduce magical thought you haven't been able to show your workings so you are wrong.

Further to this, this is a thought pattern that I can't access. I can't say that god/s will give me the strength to get through some hardship. I need something that I can access without magical thought.
