Mormon Doctrine A Key To Falsehood Of All Religions

I think the success of Mormon doctrine in modern society together with its rejection by the rest of the religious world is especially useful from an atheists point of view. Here is a very large group of well-educated, family-devoted, hard-working, patriotic, health-oriented, otherwise reasonable people who believe in things that the rest of the religious community reject.

I find atheist debaters use Mormonism more than any other religion to counter Christian defenders because those theists (unless they're Mormon) discount Mormon claims for some of the SAME reasons that atheists discount Christian claims about God, Jesus Christ, miracles in the Bible, miracles outside of the Bible, etc. Non-Mormon Christian apologists discount Mormon claims because of lack of credible evidence (as well as disagreement with their particular interpretation of scriptures). This is exactly the same claim that atheists make against Christian claims: inadequate evidence.
