Sad to say that this is probably an exercise in futility that will just make you both unhappy. He isn't going to listen to anything you say until he learns to respect your underlying choice to be an atheist.

Next time tell him that you'd prefer to change the subject than to fight with him.

The creationism aspect is worrying. I don't know how I'd take it if any of my relatives were into that BS. Happily the few members of my family who are religious are all on the liberal end of the spectrum. If you know somebody qualified you'll have more luck getting another theist to talk him out of that nonsense. They'll have a better grasp of the mindset and fewer points of contention.

I sense an apologetic In your future.

I see Santa leaving you some new friends in your stocking. New buddies like William, Frank, Sye, or Dinesh. People who are SO plugged into science that any argument they lob at you is sure to be original. You know, apologetics. The second largest waste of paper in history after holy books.

Count yourself lucky if he isn't going to lob one of these turds at you then.
