Please stop using this argument as it is not accurate.

There are plenty of actual evidences and atrocities in the bible to debunk it based on its own merit.
I am an atheist and what I hate about religion is being toyed with here, misinformation. If you truly want to get your information out it is best not to be found spreading misinformation ourselves. The facts are already on our side.
Such as: Slavery, rape, infanticide, genocide, human sacrifice, thought crimes, invisible punishment, invisible reward, questionable morals, on and onů



Regardless of science, we do not need it to be atheists. I am an atheist because of the lack of evidence FOR god. Not because science has proved god not to exist. This is a huge misconception from religious followers. Being atheist is not because science provided evidence, but because the religious has failed to.

Science explains the nature of the physical world; it is not in the business of debunking religion.
One of the examples of an atheistic argument against Christianity (or religion for that matter), one only has to look as far as a Christopher Hitchens debate on youtube. Look no farther to see a glaring difference in debating on scientific terms vs. debating on terms of lacking evidence for a claim or debunking those claims by way of reason and morals not science. The claim of atheism is disbelief because of lack of evidence. It is and should be looked at only as that. Atheism is not a religion or a field of science.

Atheism is justified doubt because of lack of evidence. Nothing more and nothing less. Atheism is about spreading facts and information. The people we talk to may be interested in what we have to say so speak the truth. Not misinformation, that is what they do and should be the glaring difference between the two.

Just my opinion, but people appear to fiddle the judge icons. They're not worth bothering with.

Roman/Greek: Demeter and Persephone, Rhea and Zeus, Apollo
In Egypt, virgin mother Isis begat Horus
In Phrygia, Attis was born of the virgin Nama.
A nymph bathing in a river in China is touched by a lotus plant, and the divine Fohi is born.
In Siam, a wandering sunbeam caresses a girl in her teens, and the great and wonderful deliverer, Codom, is born.
In the life of Buddha we read that he descended on his mother Maya, "in likeness as the heavenly queen, and entered her womb," and was born from her right side, to save the world."
In Greece, the young god Apollo visits a fair maid of Athens, and a Plato is ushered into the world.
From Greece comes the virgin birth of Adonis, who was resurrected after being killed by a wild boar. Adonis was revered by the Phoenicians as a dying-and-rising god, and Athenians held Adonia, a yearly festival representing his death and resurrection, in midsummer.

Perseus and Hercules all experienced virgin births after being fathered by yet other gods. Horus, Mithra, Dionysus and Krishna were all born on December 25th., their births were announced by "stars", attended by 'wise men', involved humble birth locations, entailed the massacre of innocents and fleeing for safety from enemies, and so on and on.

1) Isis was not said to be a virgin
2) It is not said what day Horus was born ()or Jesus for that matter.)

Point is it is a bad argument.
