What would you recommend for a fresh new atheist to read / watch / learn / do? I am actually seeking advice.
I was an evangelical Christian for over 13 years and the only resources I consumed were the Bible, evangelical Christian books, Creationist "science" and a few secular books about self-help, finances, and non-religious related.
I feel a huge gap in my knowledge and I don't know where to start with.
Should I learn the basics of evolution, logic, science method, etc ? This year, I finished reading Homo Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari. I found it really interesting.
Sometimes I feel lost when I listen to Christian Apologetics arguments. I have the feeling that there's something wrong, but I can't detect it immediately and very often it requires a lot of research from me. e.g. Sye Ten Bruggencate arguments and his usage of presuppositionalism.
Also, I am interested in the history of Christianity, how this religion was formed, how the Bible was made. I finished reading the book Misquoting Jesus by Bart Erhman and I was stunned by how the New Testament was formed. They never told me about it from the pulpit. I bet a lot of pastors don't even know it.
