"What I usually point out to Christians is God flooded the earth for forty days and forty nights and killed every living thing that breathed. Now, you tell me why he didn't separate the innocent from the guilty? Why did he kill the puppies and…"
"Basically, a greater majority of the Bible. Lol. It's full of contradictions and morally reprehensible things that their God has done. www.evilbible.com has a lot of things you might find useful. Otherwise, Google is always good choice."
"Some good points there. Most of my problems have come from the inability to get in to an in depth argument with a theist without actually insulting them. When I was new and inexperienced at this sort of thing I would walk away puzzled about why they…"
"An Update: Thanks again for everyone who replied. And yes, I'll be doing my homework when the time comes. I was supposed to meet a new pastor this weekend, he speaks fluent English so she wants me to meet him instead of her personal pastor who…"
"Go check out the Skeptics Annotated Bible. It shreds the bible with literally thousands of contradictions, injustices, cruelties, intolerances, etc.. Remember, the key is not to convert the pastor, but sow the seeds of doubt in your friend. Try not…"
"I find the best approach for me in these situations is to listen very carefully and wait for the pastor to assert something he has no evidence for. If you've never seen the Atheist Experience TV show you should definitely check it out. What…"

"For me, the best story in the bible is Job. I think it couldn't hurt to read it, but basically God makes a bet with the devil and to proof that he is right kills some people, cattle and such. Really a nice God to put your faith in."
"Start by asking if he believes the Bible is inerrant. If he says yes, then ask if all mainstream versions of the Bible are inerrant or just specific versions. If he cites a specific version, ask him why he believes this version is inerrant while…"
"So many, many possibilities!
First, there's the whole bit about why anyone would commit his entire life to something - only to be paid back later after he dies. And yes, Christianity is all about power (as are most religions). Do you have a…"
Welcome to Atheist Nexus with its 8000 good friends.
A useful group is “ORIGINS” (Origins: Universe, Life, Humans, Evolution, Religion....) with its 125 discussions and numerous video films.
One discussion (over 70 posts) is "Proud to be Atheist".
There's much to feel good about
