if that's what he thinks then I don't think you should even waste your time talking about religion with him. That has to be the worst point I've seen. If you cant make a simple point stick with him then he will never understand where you are coming from.
God and the supernatural is the single biggest fraud in all history. It continues to wreak havoc on the world. It can be fairly claimed that the revealed, Abrahamic, religions have been THE most divisive influence in the history of mankind.
That's why we . . . or any other thinking person . . . think about it. We are concerned about the consequences of religion. If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem.
Atheist exile .You have put it in a nutshell. I often ask when I am told that there is a god I just ask which God they are talking about, start to rattle off names of gods, after about 10 they give up.
Their god is supposed to love children, how many hundreds of thousands die each day , I do not want to believe in such a being even if they can find so many excuses to why evil is rampant in this World.
