My name is Keath, I'm new to this website and I'm so happy to have found it.


I've been an atheist for a long time, and everyone who knows me knows my views. 

Everyone except for a my very religious professor and a class full of students I have to give a 5-7 minute speech in front of. To give a perception of how religious my prof is, her email is (I can't give her real email) either way, she talks about her church and her religion all the time during lectures. I also go to Oklahoma State University, and of course in Oklahoma, it's uncomfortably religious here. 

I am so proud of my atheism and I want to try to persuade more people to choose reason over faith so I need to speak out. The title of my speech is going to be Atheism: My Out Campaign; and I want to try to persuade people in my class because it's a persuasive argument.

What would you guys discuss most in order to persuade a religious person to believe in Atheism? 


TL;DR What would you say to persuade a religious person to believe in Atheism?

That's awesome help, Luis. Thanks so much. 

I've narrowed down the topic of my discussion quite a lot. I have decided, because of lack of time, I am changing my speech to The Importance of Science Literacy. I discuss why science is absolute and mind blowing, and why it should be held in higher esteem in American culture. I have a short rant about atheism and theistic clashes in regards to science, but mostly it's statistics now about the universe. I am trying to make my audience feel small. I have the rough draft written and the power point mostly finished. I will have it polished very soon and I'll upload it here. 

I won't be much help on this, but as long as you stay friendly and respectful of their beliefs and don't outright attack them, I think it should go smoothly. It would help, also, if you pointed out the strong points of atheism instead (or at least, in addition to) of the weak points of theism. I'd give a quick explanation of your view of atheist morality as well, because that seems to be a point many theists (me included) are rather confused on.

Edit; whoops, a bit late for suggestions. Sorry!
