"How do you Win a Religious Argument?"
You can't when the religious argument is based on ideas with no proof whatsoever.
I think the problem here is that people keep bringing up the old notion of "Science vs. Religion". This implies that there's some kind of battle
going on and one side is trying to defeat the other. I'm sorry, but there was no battle to begin with. Science was used from the very beginning of
Human Civilization to help us survive, way before "God" entered the scene and decided in his infinite wisdom to get us to start massacring each
other over belief. If there was a battle of sorts, "Science" won a long time ago when Christian and other theological ideas were discovered to be
wrong, i.e. Flat Earth, Geo-centrism etc. All they have left is to prove that their First Century ideas are still valid when they're not. I'm not a
complete asshole and I'll acknowledge that some ideas may have a place in our modern societies but the vast majority don't.
The best thing that scientists and those who believe in the scientific method can do is to walk away. Religious folk want a confrontation so they can
expel religious diatribe at you for various reasons. Science should just keep doing what it does, and keep educating the public on a regular basis.
It'll take time but as people across the world get educated, religion will slowly die off anyway.
