Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
I think you're looking at it all wrong. Too much doom and gloom in your outlook. Have a bit more fun with it
I took a Religion vs Science comparative religion class at university, and it obviously had an atheist slant both in the class and the instructor, but folks surprisingly gave deep theological discussions a lot more room then I would have expected and in our lectures and in-class discussions and seminars we had some very deep, profoundly moving talks about the nature and reality of God and religion and faith and also science and fact and politics. I was impressed to say the least. Sure, we had to read some terribly trashy Dawkins and Hitchens, those guys are like a 14 year old mood-swing temper tantrum combined with a woe-is-me-because-I-don't-get-it pity party, but meh, so what?
Even Dawkins sometimes makes good points, like a lot of Christian morality is pseudo-morality when folks practice morality strictly in fear of Divine punishment, and that is true. These atheists may not be very sophisticated (in fact I've read more convincing arguments for atheism in Saint Augustine then these guys
) but they still ask challenging questions that move our faith. We NEED to be asking ourselves these questions, and let the Mystery of God reveal the answers and guide our faith closer towards Him.
Look at the glass half full, you can really take on the challenge and find productive, friendly, and mutually respectful (i.e., be NICE) ways to discuss and counter any atheist argument, and in the meantime your own faith and sense of awareness will grow, and maybe some others in the class will too, like Paul in 1 Corinthians 9:21-24.
