I'm just courious. Why Atheism, insted of another religion? Why not Christianity?

This might be better as a forum topic, rather then a debate, since it seems that you are asking a question, rather then defending a position.

But here it goes. Many people look through various religions and it doesn't make sense to them. It seem illogical and so they don't believe it. Just looking at Christianity as an example (although we could go through all the different religions), they read about the various miracles and the rising from the dead (of both Jesus and Lazarus) and don't see any reason to believe it, since, logically, people don't just come back from the dead. They ask for "proof" rather then "belief" and the Bible does not offer any concrete, scientific proof.

Purple Cows has forfeited his round. It appears that he has not been on for 2+ days. I will pass on my round and hope that he posts a final argument.

Atheism isn't a religion. It's the lack of religion.
