"Atheism fails miserably. First of all, in order to be an atheist, you have to believe that there is no Creator. Secondly, in order to be an atheist, you have to believe that we somehow arrived without a Creator. Thirdly, in order to be an atheist, you have to believe that we arrived here other than on purpose. Fourthly, you have to believe that intelligent life came from a non-intelligent source.

Isn't "you have to believe that we somehow arrived without a Creator" and "have to believe that we arrived here other than on purpose" sort of the same thing?
Let's watch ten things create themselves, for each one we take bets on wether it creates itself on purpose or by accident.
"Creating...creating...DAMN, I accidentally created myself on purpose. Wait lemme try again, this time I'll do it not-on-purpose."

Slavery totally fails. First you have to believe that people have to do work and don't get paid for it. Then, you have to believe that people are not allowed to leave. <\futurama reference>

Actually, it's you don't believe in a god.
Thought you might like to know.

Or, now stay with me on this, you could simply say, "to be an Atheist, you have to not believe in any god", and there you go; one little phrase that amazingly covers your entire "thesis" quite efficiently, while, at the same time, completely avoids making you look like a blathering idiot.

So...where does the "fail" come in?

And you do too.
No matter how you word it, twist it or plead for special treatment: YOUR God comes from nothing! We say there's always been something and it's form has changed, that's valid as change is observable and God isn't.
