As far as debunking it, I had no problem with the info it contained on the notion of "gods or no gods". I just personally didn't find it to be well written. I think I would have preferred something a little less personal and a bit more schollarly.

Truth be told, aside from Hitch, I'm not all that into what might be considered "atheist literature", I'd rather sit down with a good story. Wink

That's also why I suggested the novel, Under Tiberious. It's a quick read and probably not what one might be expecting. It's a thinker. Shy

RE: Shai Reads The Case for Christ
The problem with some counter-apologetics is being too generous. It often assumes that coherent concepts have been defined, when often they have not. There's nothing to even refute in an argument based on nonsense ideas.

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

Ah right Smile I eventually stopped reading God delusion. Got to chapter 5 and just got bored. So I totally understand getting turned off by his style.

"If we are honest—and scientists have to be—we must admit that religion is a jumble of false assertions, with no basis in reality.
The very idea of God is a product of the human imagination."
