Pro

There are no reasons for believing in god which can be accurately described as rational rather than fallacious. I invite anyone who disagrees to provide your BEST reason for believing in a god and allow me to expose to you why it is demonstrably fallacious. Furthermore I expect to easily prove that you yourself would not find that reason convincing if it were used to support any similar claim.

Good luck!

No there is no rational reason. As there is no rational reason to think that a chair is not a chair, and an invisible cookie does not exist.

skepticism is hard to argue against because it's more of an aesthetic than a philosophy

Interesting debate.

But not interesting at the same time, in my opinion.

Is it only me, or does the atheist always win?

The only claim that Christians have is faith. That's pretty much it. And atheist always overpowers the claim of faith.

Uhg!
