Bad Arguments-The Courtier's Reply
The "Courtier's Reply" is the argument that a high degree of theological sophistication is required to contest religious belief.

In fact, theology school is often the first step toward atheism, since really, really sophisticated theology is all but indistinguishable from atheism, making no real claims about anything.
