Atheism is wrong because God exists.
'When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.' - John 16:13

This might not actually be the worst argument, because it would make sense if I actually supported the primary claim.

This one is worse:

Atheism is wrong because it is.

One of my favorites:

Atheism is a religion. Whether it fits technically with the semantics or not is not a concern of mine; the practical definition of religion is what matters to me, not the letter of the law. And the practical definition, distasteful though it may be to those who disdain religion in all its forms, is that the very thing most atheists hate is what they have become: a religion, with clearly defined rules, eschatology and a philosophy by which to live. Religion is a means of understanding our existence. Atheism fits that bill. Religion is a philosophy of life. So is atheism. Religions has its leaders, the preachers of its tenets. So does atheism (Nietzsche, Feuerbach, Lenin, Marx). Religion has its faithful believers, who guard the orthodoxy of the faith. So does atheism. And religion is a matter of faith, not certainty. Your own faithful say that, as that is what I was referring to in my posting. Welcome to the religious world!

Atheism is not a religion. However, I would say that perhaps New Atheism is a religion.

Atheists hate puppies
It is wrong to hate puppies
Therefore Atheism is wrong

Since this has a low standard and some good ones are already taken. I choose, because atheism tries to undermine authority, traditions and set times & laws.

Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

Actually, that was hilarious. And completely on topic.

Lol...it's a joke. Not Scotty himself, but his abrasive nature makes him a terrible apologist.
It also makes him likely to be set up as a posterchild Christian who pickets at funerals..but..it's obviously a joke. The guy has a reputation and I'm poking a little fun.

If anything, that seems like an argument for atheism.

P1: People on the New Testament would not be willing to give their own lives for their believe in Christ and God, unless their belief in Christ and God was true.

P2: People in the New Testament were willing to give their own lives for their belief in Christ and God

C: God exists

---

P1: The Holy Spirit can only be immediately experienced, if God exists

P2: The Holy Spirit can be immediately experienced

C: God exists

---

P1: Complexity and order can only come from God

P2: There is complexity and order in the universe

C: God exists

Those are just some of the worst ones I have seen floating around...

The more atheist a society is, the more genocidal (e.g. USSR and China). Ergo, atheism is more violent than religion.
