    As you can see by my title, I do not know how.

    Scriptures say that to correct is a sign of love. Proverbs 3:12 For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.

    Most do not see it that way when on the receiving end of that love.

    I see correction as love just as the scriptures do. How do you see it and how would you tell a supernatural believing person that they are borderline stupid?

    Why do you feel you need to correct someone. More than likely, they would feel the same about you.

    Why do you feel that it is not your duty to correct poor thinking?

    I have no idea on how one convinces a person that believes in the supernatural that it does not exit.
    You can't. My five-year old adopted nephew was waking up at night screaming about the ghosts. I tried for weeks to convince him ghosts didn't exist but he wasn't buying it. A lot of people in his life believe in ghosts. So, I switched tactics. I told him the ghosts he was hearing were my uncle, the paratrooper killed at Bastogne, and his father, who committed suicide when David was four, and they were around the house to protect them all from bad ghosts.

    That, he believed. That's why missionaries target Christians and not unbelievers. Someone who believes one batch of nonsense is easier to convince to believe a new batch of nonsense than a person he is rational rational being convinced to believe nonsense.

    That he bought.

    Who decides what is poor thinking?

    What I find to be poor thinking, someone else may think is correct.

    You are calling me stupid? On your smartest day you’re not as smart as I am on my dumbest day. Seriously there was no reason for that kind of comment

    Then best to put your view out there to see if it stands up.

    Seems that you fear being wrong more than taking your knocks and growing your mind.

    I argue, in a sense, to lose so that I might learn and improve.

    When I win, the other guy gets all the benefit.

    Girdle your loins my friend and challenge your thinking as you challenge what you think is poor thinking in others.

    Stupid is as stupid writes.

    You wrote stupid garbage and should be made aware of it.

    That is how not so intelligent people get to be more intelligent.
