It has and still is a constant debate amongst atheist on whether or not to debate or engage in discussion with theist because their arguments often resort to "because gawwd, that's why." Many feel that we atheist don't have an option considering how negatively theism affects humanity and many atheist feel it is a waste of time to engage with theist, that we should focus on things that can be changed or fixe.
I've wrestled with this since I was 20yrs old, ages ago. I still am not sure which is the most fruitful course of action but I do know that I am unable to stop engaging theists arguments. No matter how old, circular, dishonest, unreasonable, etc the apologetics is I will challenge it if I have the time and the circumstances permit it. Shall we debate this? (esp. you theist that want to comment)
