The topic.

It has already been done: http://skepticsannotatedbible.com/index.htm
Can you point me to the section of that site where they discuss it and show that it is self-defeating?
There is an index.

You can see it for yourself.

Ah the hokey burble.

God forgives all sins, apart from the sin of not believing in god. The god of the burble is all about blind faith and unwavering devotion to its unverifiable existence.

God doesn't even care if you are "good" or not. All that matters is that you believe.

“by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast” (Eph 2:7-8)

This may give you an indication of why Christians, Muslims and the other abrahamics, struggle with atheism and try to twist it into a belief system, because they are so deeply indoctrinated into the idea the non-belief is such an unforgivable sin.

I was just at the 'Sceptic's annotated Quran' looking for a particularly nasty story. It wasn't highlighted like most of the violence on that website so it was hard to find.
Moses is walking along with a wise slave who does strange things including murdering a young man in front of him (he reveals to Moses later the boy's parent were believers and he would have led them astray, hence the execution.) Fucked up.

Did it say how he knew the future? Was it meant to be an angel? It's this certain knowledge that is so dangerous.

Of course not! We're supposed to just accept these things without questions silly . It's from Quran 'The Cave' 18:65.
