Though it is a bit sloppy, my first debate is on the historicity of the Jesus resurrection. There is a good bit of information in it.

I know of quite a lot of material on some of those subjects but, unfortunately, they happen to be books...

But here's some sources that are really useful:

600 + atheism vs theism debates:

http://commonsenseatheism.com...

200 + philosophers of religion and their best work:

http://commonsenseatheism.com...

Assorted links on all things theism:

http://philpapers.org...

http://www.lastseminary.com...

http://exapologist.blogspot.com...

http://appearedtoblogly.wordpress.com...

http://www.infidels.org...

http://www.arsdisputandi.org...

Obviously, you could find things for every category from these links. I'm probably forgetting other resources. If you ask me to name anything specific on one topic (like, say, hell) I could try to name the best articles I can think of.

Also, I think carm.org sucks. Sorry. :(

Thanks PCP, those website are fantastic and I'm looking forward to delving into them.

I think carm has some pretty good articles, although their views are often different too mine. Bit surprised you think it sucks actually. :/

No problem.

It's not the fact that their views are different from mine - I read religious and non-religious stuff all the time that diametrically opposes my views - it's that I think carm.org tends to give misleading and simplistic arguments. For example, the one you posted on universalism was just plain bad because it failed to even neglect the basic biblical and philosophical arguments for the position - and instead just dismissed the position as "unbiblical" do to cursory and shallow criticisms of it.

Here's a good article on universalism, anyhow:

Talbott's stuff is always worth a read, he's fantastic.

On the problem of evil, Rowe's paper is pretty much the gold standard:

On the existence of God:

There's also lots of podcasts which are useful here on various things:
