In the meantime here are a couple of links debunking arguments for God:
Fairly in depth and manages to be funny:
Dan Barker's criticism of the kalam argument:
^While I was searching for the latter, I came across a half-assed Christian rebuttal to Barker's essay. See if you can spot the errors in it. I swear this professor Guthrie guy is none too bright, judging from the content of his website.

But then something awkward happened. The amount of stuff this "god" was supposed to have created got vaster and vaster, and further back in time - if this "god" also personally created humans, one is entitled to ask WTF he waited 15 billion years, and why he bothered to create so much surplus universe. They're left with a struggle to reunite the two concepts, and end up talking guff about "god" being "outside of time." And as Barker points out, that doesn't gel with the idea of him/her/it/them creating a natural universe that has a beginning and a temporal dimension.
That's enough. My brain 'urts.

That's assuming you're vain enough to think that homo sapiens is the whole point of the universe. Something that I'd certainly quibble!

For all we know, life on earth could be like the lichen growing on a rock in someone's back yard.
