ReDefining Faith

In my previous post, I listed just a few of the many authoritative/definitive secular and sectarian sources explaining that faith is “a firm belief that is not based on evidence”. That’s what the consensus of dictionaries, sermons, hymns of pastors past and present, every single former theological scholar to have since discarded faith and all […]

Defining Faith

This last weekend, I participated in the Gateway to Reason conference in St Louis, Missouri. One of the speakers there was John Loftus. He’s an author of religious philosophy with a bachelor’s degree from Great Lakes Christian College, a Master of Divinity degree from Lincoln Christian University, and a Masters of Theology degree from Trinity Evangelical Divinity […]

The Largest Gathering of Ex-Muslims in History

Since at least October, I had been planning to attend the International Conference on Freedom of Conscience and Expression in London this month. It was called “the Glastonbury of Freethinkers”. I gather that Glastonbury is to the Brits what Woodstock is to Americans. This looked like the event to attend! There were so many speakers! […]

How Aron Ra Disproves Noah’s Flood

I’m embarrassed for my country that a playlist like this is even necessary. But Answers In Genesis and their Noah’s Ark Park, as well as many other anti-science apologists in every level of our national government prove that, yes, we really do have to point out and explain things that are this impossibly silly and […]

Irreducible Irrationalism

Whenever some believer wants to have a protracted discussion in private, it’s frustrating for me because they expect me to go through all this trouble to re-educate that one person alone, only to then see them stick their fingers in their ears, and then I can’t use that discussion as evidence against them. This is […]

Debate Debacle

Hopefully this will be my last post on this debacle. My first post on this told how some self-described “Servant of God” challenged me to come to Michigan and debate whether the Bible is reliable. At that point, he said: If you can not handle a real debate let me know and i will find someone.else It […]

Debating on debating

In an earlier post, I mentioned how someone calling himself “Servant of God” challenged me to come to Michigan and debate one of his friends over whether the Bible is reliable. In that post, I said that I didn’t think it was really going to happen. Because the challenger was determined to say that he […]

Are You a REAL Christian?

In an earlier post, I mentioned how some self-described “servant of God” challenged me to come to Corunna Michigan to debate whether the Bible is reliable. After three weeks, he finally got back to me. Yet he still said he’s having trouble finding an atheist willing to debate. Then he said: “I have seen you […]

Correspondence with a Creationist

In a previous post, I mentioned a discussion with a creationist I met at a debate. It continued in email, and sadly that person was not willing to be held accountable in a public format. So I will keep an anonymous record of our discussion here. My interest doesn’t lay in “debating” alternate views – I […]

No Debate in Michigan

Some Christian minister calling himself a “Servant of God” challenged me on Twitter to debate a Doctor Somebody. I don’t know or care who his champion is. To my experience, any theologian who calls himself Doctor either doesn’t actually have a legitimate PhD or it’s in an irrelevant field: but even if was legit, they’d […]
