    Boy Who Went to Heaven Recants

    I have been struck by the number of xtians whose replies to this take the form: Why does it matter if it is true? Look how many souls it saved? It is the same basic reply I get from people spouting urban legends about evil atheist professors and pieces if chalk. To them, it doesn't matter if...

    Site of Trial of Jesus unearthed - for Believers

    Once again, "The validity of the bible continues to be proven with each turn of the archeologist's backhoe" ;-)

    Barton: The Founding Fathers Opposed The Theory Of Evolution, Which Was Established In 500 B.C.

    Keep in mind this is a dude who presented himself as a meticulous academic by virtue of having tons of footnotes

    Video series on Kalam refutation

    Relativity is one of those topics that is a fascinating barometer of a witnesses intellectual honesty. If someone who you know wouldn't be able to explain at a top level the difference between general and special relativity is willing to attempt to try and make arguments about theology based on...

    God's too great to communicate clearly with humans

    "If i were omniscient, i would know an analogy or metaphor or alternate, high-level explanation to give, or a block diagram to show them, to get the point across." Exactly, that was all I said in my comment.

    God's too great to communicate clearly with humans

    Many/most god's are allegedly omnipotent. Until that omnipotence is inconvenient, then the "he can do anything, except" terms creep in.

    question about shipwrecks

    By the way, the "blue berg" theory has been "floated" over the years as, let's face it, a reason for why the berg was not spotted until late. It seems at variance however at variance with witness testimony who saw the berg pass's the ship. Note that the Titanic's sister, Brittanic, was...

    question about shipwrecks

    Another interesting example to ponder is the Great Eastern. She was greatly overbuilt for her day and age, and was consistently losing money in service because she was so un-economic to run. She ended up as a successful cable layer.

    They could if Einstein was omnipotent. :-)

    Kirk Cameron Urges Christians To Celebrate Halloween By Sharing The Gospel

    Keep in mind we are talking about otherwise intelligent folk who think that 'God's Not Dead" is some kind of masterpiece. I honestly think many of them are just happy that someone "famous" is proclaiming the faith that they were taught as kids, that they readily overlook the vacuous nature of...

    Duck Dynasty and Nicholas Cage Are Gonna Gitchu Right with God

    I know for a while there, Cage did a LOT of movies because he was in big time debt to the IRS to the tune of around 20 million dollars. I think the state of California had leans on him too, and I don't think he is out of trouble yet. I wonder whether being on the wrong side of the IRS is a...

    Subservience to dictatorial power is the main message of Christianity

    Except god, who is a constant. Except when he changes his mind. ;)

    Subservience to dictatorial power is the main message of Christianity

    The pattern seems to me that god does not want robots out of the box. He wants people with free will to decide for themselves that it is best for them to obey robotically and absolutely. In this way, he can acquire the praise singers that he wants that will sing his praises for eternity...

    Stories From CARM

    Actually, I differ on that. You see Universalists believe everyone is getting into heaven. No one tormented for eternity because they didn't believe (i.e. agree with MY religion), or believed the wrongthing. Xtians just LOVE the notion of hell. Gotta have winners, gotta have losers. That is...

    Duck Dynasty and Nicholas Cage Are Gonna Gitchu Right with God

    Y'all need to remember, he's a trickster, who LOVES fooling people. It's a little trick his father taught him, like making a young creation look old to fool those stoooopid scientists...
