I've been thinking about this some more, and it's right.

(of course)

I'm going to do it. I think the way to go is in writing, first. A 10+
page essay, designed to shake a Christian to the ground, and then
/rebuild/ an atheistic position on top.

Estimated time to draft: 30 hours
Estimated time to revise: 20 hours
Estimated time to finish: 10 hours
Total time: 60 hours

Free time per week: 30 hours
Time allocated: 3 weeks --- "overbudget allocation included".

You guys are cut off till it's done. I'll post it.
