What an atheist asked Christians. Even though I don't have the Christian disease I answered some of the questions.

"Since I could take anything, true or false, based on faith or presupposing it, it can't be a reasonable pathway to truth or god."
A big part of religious brainwashing (aka child abuse) is this idea repeated thousands of times: "You must have faith."
In other words you must believe any idiotic fantasy that makes you feel good even if it has not one shred of evidence.
A biologist at the University of Minnesota had something to say about faith:
"No one word personifies the absolute worst and most wicked properties of religion better than that. Faith is mind-rot. It’s the poison that destroys critical thinking, undermines evidence, and leads people into lives dedicated to absurdity. It’s a parasite regarded as a virtue." -- PZ Myers
"Religion is the antithesis of science, an anesthetic for the mind that disables critical thought and encourages the acceptance of inanity as fact, and wishful thinking as evidence." -- PZ Myers
"Without god there is no morality."
That's ridiculous because I never met a Christian who had any moral values.
Normal people, aka atheists, have a brain so they can figure things out. It's everyone's best interest to be civilized. I don't need a magic god fairy to figure that out. This is not rocket science.
"God is revealing himself to you. You just aren't looking/are denying him."
The only possible explanation for this idea is brain damage.
