Atheistic point-scoring

As interesting as all the recent letters of atheists are declaring what Christianity is and isn’t, I find that the descriptions, such as those of R McCormick (The Advertiser 10 April), have little in common with what modern mainline Christians believe.
My suggestion is that atheists and others, instead of believing their own indoctrination, should find an educated, intelligent and serious Christian person (and there are thousands of us around) and enter into genuine dialogue with them. Not with a view to being converted or to converting but to listening and respecting viewpoints and conclusions different from their own.
The trouble is there is too much cheap point-scoring going on it is, as they say, generating an awful lot of heat but not much light.
