Logic
Hey there. As this site calls itself "The Thinking Atheist", I assume that it has at least a passing interest in logic, at least as it applies to theological matters. So I thought I would help out a little.
Theistic arguments are often a mess of logical fallacies - breaks in their validity. These fallacies are often subtle and difficult to spot unless you know what you're looking for. So, to help you guys out, I thought I'd post this:

Nizkor <-That's a link

Nizkor is a Holocaust information database dedicated to refuting conspiracy theorists' claims that it never happened. But it also happens to have a fairly detailed list of the various logical fallacies, which is what I've linked to.
I hope this helps you guys the next time someone tries to shove the cosmological argument in your face (here's a hint: special pleading).
