For example, why did you resort to an ad hominem attack on me and my website when I posted a comment on this thread regarding how some former JWs turned atheists still carry some traits from JW's?...Eden
Are you not doing exactly what you are accusing others of by doing that? Aren't you now telling some atheists, that as people they are carrying certain 'traits' rather that looking at what they are saying? It would appear to me that cofty linking your website and showing that what you are teaching is similar to what the JWs teach was in RESPONSE to your claim that some atheists behave like JW's. Not the other way round.
I think he was leveling the playing field of ad hominem. Neither were addressing the correctness or incorrectness of the belief. Both were simply making a comparison to JW beliefs or behaviour. As though that alone dismissed what either person was saying.
