That might be intellectually unfair but, meh.

As for Lee Strobel - I've read The Case for Christ and while at the time it gave me pause (as I was struggling to make my way out of / into Christian faith) it's a lot of the same old crap too. Someone close to me still owes me a book from that exchange...

This is sadly uncommon, for people to read or research opposing views. I read whatever books my theist parents give for me to read, and they don't even bother to ask for my rebuttals (or fairly ask for atheist books in return). I read Evidence that Demands a Verdict years ago when I was a Christian, and it impressed me then. It's less impressive now that I understand what constitutes "evidence".

Kudos to you for your research and insight. Keep up the great work.

My girlfriend is mad at me. Perhaps I shouldn't have tried cooking a stick in her non-stick pan.
