I think, if this is the case, i am all in with that.

I'm not all in with that, and judging by what you wrote after this bit I'm quoting, I am fairly sure you are not either.

It's in your signature - you can't convert an Olympic athlete to be a non-football player. You can't convert a theist to be a non-theist (atheist).

What you can do is invalidate their proofs, their arguments, their claims in favor of their football playing or theism. That doesn't involve making your own claims in favor of non-football playing or in favor of atheism. You simply undermine their claims and let them find new proof or, maybe, change their minds about what they have been claiming.

But I think you know this, so I posted this for other readers.
