Bill - I was raised Catholic and, while I can trace my skepticism all the way back to the first grade - I was also always engaged by the Big Questions and they, at least, provided a kind of 'forum' (padded cell?) for this interest to be addressed (funneled)

Nevertheless, I went through a process that got me here in my thinking. And, while I do not believe certain types of fundies can be 'saved' - my 75 year old Dad is beginning to turn the corner... (to be continued)

Thanks for the invite Nerd. But now I'm forced to wonder - was I invited because you believe I might offer valuable insight into how to win an argument, or because you think I need to taught how? :^)

Actually, I am very pleased to discover that persuasive argument is being discussed as well as logical argument. In fact, logos can, at times, be the least persuasive way to bring someone to a logical conclusion.

I find that a variation of Sam Harris's short reply to Rabbi Schmuley Boteach is probably the best way to refute Christianity. Seen here.

Basically, we don't have to prove the absence of god; all we have to do in order to reject Christianity is show that there are bad reasons to take the Gospel at face value.

What's the Harm in superstitious or religious beliefs? How about the harm in just a lack of critical thinking? Here's a crapload of case histories on why these beliefs can be harmful: http://whatstheharm.net/
