    I can’t believe someone is arguing for the practice of cultural Marxism.

    That has nothing to do with your response to my post where I said one should be critical of all theories does it?

    And using a definition that is irrelevant to the OP while there is a definition for critical that is relevant to the OP.

    Yes. Thinking you were using the definition relevant to the OP.

    Maybe you should reread the OP to understand the question that was asked.

    So the question still stands... is it ethical to only criticize what one doesn't believe to arrive at what one does believe without ever examining what one believes?

    I’m sorry, I don’t understand your response.

    What do you mean when you say “That is exactly what militant atheists do”?

    They criticize and ridicule the beliefs of others to validate their own beliefs because they cannot make an argument for their beliefs any other way.
