1) Christians Have the Wrong Name
In Hebrew, Jesus’ name is Yeshua. It means “Yahweh [the Lord] is Salvation.” The English spelling of Yeshua is “Joshua.” However, when translated from Hebrew into the Greek language, the name Yeshua becomes Iēsous. The English spelling for Iēsous is “Jesus.” The real problem is that Isaiah 7:14 says that the Messiah’s name would be Immanuel. Derp.
2) Atheism Doesn’t Kill Anyone
An atheist is simply a person who lacks a belief in a god. It doesn’t define who we are, what we value, or what we believe. It only defines what we don’t believe in a god a.k.a. bullshit.
3) Your God’s Own Actions Contradict His Nature
A God who knows the future is powerless to change it. An omniscient God who is all-powerful and free willed is impossible. A God who knows everything cannot have emotions. The Bible says that God experiences all of the emotions of humans, including anger, sadness, and happiness. We humans experience emotions as a result of new knowledge. A man who had formerly been ignorant of his wife’s infidelity will experience the emotions of anger and sadness only after he has learned what had previously been hidden. In contrast, the omniscient God is ignorant of nothing. Nothing is hidden from him, nothing new may be revealed to him, so there is no gained knowledge to which he may emotively react. We humans experience anger and frustration when something is wrong which we cannot fix. The perfect, omnipotent God, however, can fix anything. Humans experience longing for things we lack. The perfect God lacks nothing. An omniscient, omnipotent, and perfect God who experiences emotion is impossible. Finally, Christians say their god is omnibenevolent. If this God is also omniscient when he created the universe, he saw the sufferings which humans would endure as a result of the sin of those original humans. He heard the screams of the damned. Surely he would have known that it would have been better for those humans to never have been born (in fact, the Bible says this very thing), and surely this all-compassionate deity would have foregone the creation of a universe destined to imperfection in which many of the humans were doomed to eternal suffering. A perfectly compassionate being who creates beings which he knows are doomed to suffer is impossible.

4) The Ten Commandments aren’t THE Ten Commandments
The Ten Commandments that are celebrated and honored by Christians were actually broken and never instituted. God promised to give the same ten commandments to Moses. Are they?
- You shall not bow down to another god; for Yahweh is a jealous god!
- You shall not make molten gods for yourself.
- You shall observe the festival of Unleavened bread.
- You shall redeem every first born of your sons!
- You shall observe the Sabbath.
- You shall make a festival of Weeks.
- Three times a year every male shall appear before Yahweh, god of Israel.
- You shall not offer the blood of my sacrifice on leavened bread.
- You shall bring the first fruits of your land to the house of Yahweh your god.
- You shall not cook a kid in its mother’s milk.
5) The Resurrection is Not Unique
The Bible lists TEN separate occasions when God brought people back to life. Elijah raises the son of a widowed woman (1 Kings 17:20-22). Elisha raises the son of a Shunammite woman (2 Kings 4:16-20, 32-36). God uses the bones of Elisha to raise a man back to life (2 Kings 13:20-21). Jesus resurrects the only son of a woman from Nain (Luke 7:11-15). Jesus raises from the dead the daughter of Jarius, who is a ruler in the synagogue (Luke 8 49-55). Jesus raises Lazarus from the dead (John 11). In Joppa, Peter resurrects a generous woman named Tabitha (Acts 9:36-41). Paul raises from the dead a young man named Eutychus who fell from a window (Acts 20:7-12). The last known person in the Bible raised from the dead was the apostle Paul himself after being stoned by an unruly mob. During Paul’s very first missionary journey, Jews from Pisidian Antioch and Iconium arrived in Lystra and succeeded in turning the people against Paul and Barnabas. Paul is soon STONED and has his dead body dragged out of the city. Some believers find Paul’s body and as they stand around it Paul comes back to life (Acts 14:20).
Side Note: Apparently, God resurrected saints back to a physical life immediately after Jesus was resurrected from the dead (Matthew 27: 52-53).
