Nonsense is nonsense, but the history of nonsense is a very important science.

I think they cannot comprehend that a sane person could really not believe.

Call #4 on the list a sort of confirmation bias, like so: The subjective phenomenon of being "angry with God" really exists and those who feel that might call themselves atheists. Especially they might very loudly call their former selves atheists after returning to the fold.
I think they are confusing the suspension of disbelief as if it were something they actually believed. You can't but help to do that when talking about something so utterly fictional. I mean, Batman surely won't eat nachos. Except for that one time...

Depends on how wide you want to draw that circle around yourself, and how far back you want to trace causation. When you think about the massive loss of progress collectively known as the (Christian) Dark Ages, we've all been harmed by religion.

I know this graph is a joke, but I'll be damned if it doesn't help make a point.

The intro already gave the author's agenda away. Drinking Beverage

"Over the years I’ve had the privilege of engaging many atheists like James in various settings. I’ve discovered five helpful tips when sharing the gospel with someone who claims to not believe in God."

Hrrrrrm.

Christian who just automatically assumes I agree with him deep down, but is happy to have a friendly discussion, not judge, not make the sign of the cross and flee, and not try to strip me of my rights or harrangue me with hate, shouting, and emotional blackmail?

.... far, far from the perfect model, but a definite upgrade over the normal conversion-junkie.

I'd rather have the buddy I can chill with on weekends, though. Pass.

The bible is a love story?

I have been through that book a zillion times and I have yet to find any good porn in there!

So how can it be a love story?

Blink

How can anyone become an atheist when we are all born with no beliefs in the first place? We are atheists because we were born this way.

Well it's no love story, but if you're into incest and rape porn there's 2 Samuel 13
