Logical Fallacies.
When in a debate with a Theist, having a solid handle on logical fallacies will be the best tool in your toolbox. All arguments in support of religion are based completely on textbook fallacy, and recognizing each one as they are thrown at you is indispensable. I have been arguing against religion privately and publicly for quite a few years and have heard the same tired old rhetoric coming from the religious folks time and time again. Know fallacies and you will never lose an argument on religion...you will only look like a heartless dick.

Here is some great info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallacy

I feel your pain, dude. I so, so feel your pain.

RE: Logical Fallacies.
You know.. it would be interesting to have someone compile all these fallacies and then give the examples in a religious sense. That would be interesting to read.
