Atheists, whats the worst "evidence" you have encountered while debating theists?


And yes, I use the term "evidence" extremely loosely

    I've noticed the same thing, Paladin. Most of the Christians I know have never read the bible from cover to cover even once, and most atheists I know have. If the bible was really the word of a god, shouldn't his follower be all over it?

    I agree. Much of the Bible is borrowed from other traditions.

    So true, Borsia, so true indeed. Many highly rational and intelligent people become quite primitively childish when it comes to religion then all types of rationality goes out the window. I have seen this firsthand. It boogles the mind really!

    someone told me once that they had the flu, so they prayed for 5 days and it went away. Really? How long does a flu last? About 5 days - and an all powerful god couldn't cure it instantly while you still accredit getting better to his healing?

    if people have experienced or seen miracles, is it still blind faith?

    It might depend upon the beginning and the ending of the loop on which the evidences rest...are there gaps between the links upon the circular continuum? If not, absolutely. However, if questions remain in a conjectural state...No.

    yes, that's the whole point of skepticism. So you don't fall for things that are untrue.

    The atheist point of view is not another religion. Also, atheist people are a very heterogeneous group, with widely differing opinions.... whereas those proclaiming christianity are often very dogmatic and closed-minded.

    Evidence itself doesnt change. its just sitting there waiting to be discovered. Just because we dont know how to gather it or interpret it all the time doesnt make it less reliable. How else do you think we should look at history or solve crimes?
