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.
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.

Not just “It’s heat” or “It’s static,” etc. Enter by commenting on the YouTube video, not here on the blog.

What does a Christian do when a loved one, who is not a Christian, dies? I’ve been there. This is my story.
