Opening a Dialogue With Christians: Lya's Report

Fellow atheist, Lya, has a great post at Escapee From the Meme Machine in which she describes the results of an informal experiment in which she visited Christian forums for a few months. Why would she put herself through that? She wanted to see whether a discussion between atheists and Christians would produce anything of value.

The results of this experiment were fascinating. She reports on several common misconceptions about atheists, reasons Christians provide for why it is okay to believe things that have no supportive evidence, frequently encountered fallacies, etc. I strongly encourage you to read her excellent post.

Note: Lya's post also appears at God is For Suckers!
