My critique on this Old Testament book about suffering, containing the first mention of the character Satan.
Overcoming personal vices that we deem to be unhealthy, but powerfully addictive.
Who’s right – Protestants or Catholics? Let’s look beyond all the sectarianism to the first centuries of Christianity’s existence.
My response to a Christian doctor who makes the case for the existence of a personal God on the basis that atheists recant their atheism when suddenly faced with life-threatening injuries.
The experience of spiritual awakening – is it something real, or just a repackaging of what religion calls “salvation”?
Christianity is an ego trip. This is proven by the attitudes and actions of Christians, as they attempt to force their views on others and indulge in ideas that allow them to view the universe as something that revolves around their life.
I make a lot of videos against Christianity. This might seem a bit obsessive, when Christianity is an irrelevance to my life. But there is a good reason for it.
Was Jesus an actual person? Did he do the miraculous deeds that are recorded in the Gospels? Christianity stands or falls on this historical dilemma. I get to the root of why some people opt for belief, and others skepticism.
Thanks to marlonsuniverse for the following video response:
Discussing the idea of God from the perspectives of monotheism (God is a being), pantheism (God is the universe) and atheism (God is the Big Bang singularity). What light does modern science shed on this age-old question, especially in light of the motion of galaxies and the nature of energy?
My thoughts on this classic Christian bestseller: Doreen Irvine’s autobiography, describing her deliverance from life as a witch in a Satanic cult. In addition to the following vlog, check out my very detailed written review.
When you attempt to define “God” (or the Source, the Infinite, the Transcendent), take care that you don’t attach false limitations onto such a vast concept. It’s very easy to do this without realising it; I’ve done it myself.
I examine the original Hebrew word for “Satan” and compare the Old Testament (Jewish) account of this character with his depiction in the New Testament (Christian). Then I do the same with the word for “hell.” Christians, prepare yourselves for a shock.
Have Bible prophecies been fulfilled between the Old & New Testaments? Are “end times” prophecies being fulfilled in the present day? Is this the Ace up the Christian’s sleeve that proves his religion true against any possible counter-argument?
Convenient stereotypes and slanderous accusations are the prime ingredients in any debate, if you want to feel as if you won the argument while you merely disappear into your own imagination. When you can’t make a rational case, you can always find some mud to sling (even imaginary mud will suffice).
“Ad hominem” abuse (also called personal abuse or personal attacks) usually involves insulting or belittling one’s opponent in order to invalidate his or her argument. See the Wikipedia entry for “ad hominem”.
Christianity fosters self-hate in mankind (sometimes tastefully called “conviction of sin”) so that it can offer its own special answer (salvation) to an entirely artificial problem. The real solution begins by understanding that there is nothing wrong with you just as you are – that man is not a “fallen” being.
