It was during that time that I read their proselytizing training materials (much use of cartoons depicting a "conversation" with the intended victim in which the "saved one" would hit his mark with difficult questions intended to be unanswerable by the mark and hence would either throw him off balance and more open to conversion or else to discredit him and his position in the eyes of bystanders.
Speaking of which, I got a Chick tract in the mail the other day ("This is your life"). Good old Jack Chick. Death hasn't slowed him down.

Backwards. Start with facts and THEN make claims based on them. The scientific method is to test ideas, comparing them to the facts, not go looking for facts to confirm your biases.

You're talking to yourself.

I'll teach you the law of the Ranger's Command:
To hold a six shooter, and never to run
As long as there's bullets in both of your guns.
