Honestly, sometimes I have this weird feeling of fighting a hydra when discussing with Christians… You can chop of one head with a well placed argument, but two new ones will grow and each will shout „That’s NOT what Christians believe! Instead, real Christians believe… <enter some other strange stuff>.“
Somehow, this leads me to think that you can’t argue with Christians, as Christianity as a coherent school of thought simply does not exist. I assume, if we searched for the thing that ALL Christians believed in, we would end up with something like „God exists and Jesus was a pretty good guy“. As long as Christians can’t agree among themselves about their religion, how is is possible as an atheist to discuss it? We don’t discuss Christianity, we discuss one special flavor of Christianity – and as soon as the next Christian comes along, we get another flavor.
And the funny thing is… Christians really get angry when we generalize. Half of the times, Christians tell me, that what some other Christian claims is total bullshit and should never ever used as an argument against Christianity. SURPRISE, some other Christian will say the same about you!
Honestly, how can a religion expect to be taken seriously when they can’t even agree among themselves what the details are? If I wanted to argue that football is a bad game, than this cannot be done if the people on the field can’t agree on what the rules are, because then there is no game „football“, just some guys running around, all claiming football but everyone doing his own thing. Christians are really a minority. They are just a big group of minorities that created the illusion of all believing the same thing to be taken seriously.
