Sam Harris outlines the three main categories of arguments religious people use: (1) that religion is true, (2) that religion serves a useful purpose, or (3) that atheism is essentially a religion too (ie, based on dogma or requiring one to accept certain tenets on faith). Harris then proceeds to address each of these argument types. This is a great lecture to watch to learn to defend your secularism against the religious.
Here is the same lecture on YouTube. It’s divided into 5 segments, with the first segment here:
