Human pass knowledge on to their progeny , all our science , math , astronomy , governments , languages and medicine were hard won by those who came before us ..If you've been oppressed for centuries by people making stuff up about a magical being and making you suffer for not believing the same rubbish is it any wonder an atheist would be wary of debating with any religous person not willing to speak with reason and logic.
It would be like poking a lion with a stick.
A brave believer would be willing to admit there is not one iota of historical evidence to support absolutely any religion you care to name.
The Bible asserts Jesus healed the blind and deaf, cured leprosy resurrected the dead , and even Himself came back from the dead...And, all His apostles were all killed for spreading His message ...What more do you want ...??
The Bible is ..."here" ...It contains the words of Life and the history of God's involvement with His people ..
