Somewhat inspired by CatBirdSeat’s Hipster Bingo, (thanks to Raffy for the link) I’ve taken a list of popular fallacies, straw men, misconceptions, and trolls often used by strident atheists in religious discussion, and collected them in one fun game: Atheist Debate Bingo!
You win when you can get intolerant skeptics to trot out all twenty-five memes in one discussion, at which point you should yell “Bingo!” as loudly as possible, especially when in public. (And yeah, I know it’s not strictly the Bingo format, but the numbers rule over the need for a “FREE” middle box in this case.) Phase two will one day involve having each bingo square link to sound theological refutations for each argument. Your suggestions are welcome.
