>I’ve never said this. Reality R is a certain way, it got that way somehow by method A, B, C, D, E, F, or G. Based on philosophy alone I can reason that leprechauns come screaming out of my ass when I sleep

Dude, I know you haven't taken philosophy. You don't have to keep telling me.

>but to be sure this actually happens we need actual evidence

A sound philosophical argument is stronger evidence than anything else.

>Your “Five Ways” and other arguments have been refuted thousands of times

Handwaving fallacy. You don't know what you're talking about, so you're handwaving to hide it.

>It failed to make one position over any other evidently true without a bunch of fallacies you ignore are contained within it.

You're really just bloviating now. You can't articulate what fallacies or where or why the argument is supposedly wrong.

I haven't taken this, but it looks promising and will probably help you out a lot in life: https://www.coursera.org/learn/philosophy-science-religion-1
