These encapsulate many of the inconsistencies I’ve encountered debating with believers over the years. It doesn’t apply to just christians however they make up the majority of my society and are the most visible.

1- You vigorously deny the existence of thousands of gods claimed by other religions, but feel outraged when someone denies the existence of your god.
2 – You feel insulted and dehumanised when scientists say that people evolved from lesser life forms, but you have no problem with the biblical claim that you were created from dirt.
3 – You laugh at polytheists, but you have no problem believing in a trinity god.
4 – Your face turns purple when you hear of the atrocities attributed to allah, but you don’t even flinch when hearing about how god slaughtered all the babies of Egypt in the book of exodus and order the elimination of entire ethnic groups in joshua, including women, children and animals.
5- You laugh at hindu beliefs that defy human and Greek claims about gods sleeping with women but you have absolutely no problem believing that the “holy spirit” impregnated Mary who then gave birth to a man god who got killed, came back to live and then ascended into the sky.
6 – You are willing to spend your time looking for little loopholes in the scientifically established age of the Earth (4.55 billion years) but you find nothing wrong with believing dates recorded by pre-historic tribesmen sitting in tents having a guess that the world is only a couple of thousand years old.
7 – You believe that the entire population of this planet with the exception of those who share your beliefs –though excluding those in all rival sects will spend eternity in an infinite hell of suffering. Yet you consider your religion the most “tolerant and loving”
8 – While modern science, history, biology and physics have failed to convince you otherwise some idiot rolling around the floor speaking in tongues may be all the evidence you need.
9 – You define 0.01% as a “high success rate” when it comes to answered prayers. You consider that to be evidence that prayer works and you think that the other 99.9% was simply the will of god
10 – You actually know a lot less than many atheists, agnostics do about the bible, christianity and church history. But still call yourself a christian
