Recently I bought a new camera and amazingly Facebook started making camera based discussion group suggestion to me. When I scrolled through the suggestions I also found and joined a group devoted to Nikon D700 cameras.
Anyway, Facebook also suggested a creation/evolution discussion group and after I looked at it many more were suggested and they all seem to include atheist/theist arguments. I was surprised how many there are.
CRUSHING ALL ATHEISM and EVOLUTIONIST ARGUMENTS 4P
Human Evolution
Atheists VS Theists Debate Central
Firebrand Atheists
Atheism VS Truth, Reality, Rationality, Science,Philosophy and Theism

This title is one of my favorites...Atheism VS Everything!
Antitheist
Atheist vs Theist Debates
Christians vs Atheists debate group
ATHEIST AND LOVERS OF TRUTH
Atheism
Creation vs Evolution
Atheist Society
It has been interesting reading through some of these. Some of the atheist sites seem to be actually started by theists to post bizarre strawman criticisms of atheism. There are a lot of posts and memes that are not coherent and I suspect that they are posted by none English speakers who are using google translate or something. Often the arguments from the evolution supporters seem to indicate that they really do not have accurate knowledge of evolution or science.
Something to do when I'm procrastinating instead of working.

Hey I know some of these. I especially know the one. If you find one you enjoy then, I guess, tag me. Isn't that the phrase these days? I don't do social media so now I'm 50 years out of date.
So the algorithm went from 'camera' to 'atheist'. It saw you coming. It knows you, Tany. The cosmic consciousness of the internet has retained knowledge of you. You have been seen, categorized, weighted. Good news. Your weighted average has value in this new society, the New World Order. Your token is worth passing to other enterprizes. You have been accepted. Congratulations.

I never did join "facebook" so I guess I'll give these a pass.
It is not at all surprising that creationists don't understand the science that they criticize. We see that here. And it is no surprise that they have strawman versions of atheism (which we also see here).

Yeah, you're not missing anything (well, except for "Pot Smoking Atheists Who Love Cats Group") who all love my extreme macro shots of cannabis flowers). In general their arguments are all equal or less than the worst (most poorly constructed and illogical) we see here.
