Breaking away from a person who has left Islam

Q: My bestfriend is 20 years old. He was raised as a Muslim but he had some misconceptions about Islam. He left Islam once and came back but he still wasn't 100% convinced and he was scared. Now he isn't scared anymore and he doesn't believe in god anymore. He studies advanced physics and most physicists don't believe in god. He says that there's no evidence of god, no evidence of splitting of the moon and no evidence that Muhammed (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) was a real prophet. He says religion started several wars and killed many innocent people and how Allah would be fair to send people in the past prophets and miracles and now Allah doesn't give us any proofs. It was also written in the Qur'an that we existed 6000 years ago and it's been found by fossils that our species existed 200000 years ago. What should I do?

A: Just break away from him completely.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
