I’m often told by my religious friends that as a non-believer I have no framework for morals, since morals come only from God. In fact, one friend even said that he was surprised that I don’t rob banks, murder people, or rape women. Since after all, there is nothing to stop me!
Recently on a Facebook dialog I was told by a Christian friend of mine that “I actually do believe in God, but that I am simply running away from him.” I found this very interesting because for the longest time I have felt that it is Christians who don’t actually believe in God. Because [...]
For centuries Christians have been distorting scientific facts to fit into the tiny box that the Bible’s scriptures created. Rarely has it turned out well for anyone involved. The latest Christian strategy is to rewrite American history. But before we dive into American history, let’s look at World history. Galileo Galilei On June 22, 1663 [...]
Ben Ferguson recently replaced Mark Davis as WBAP‘s morning conservative political talk show host. Although I consider myself a Libertarian (I’m socially liberal, and fiscally conservative), I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the Mark Davis show each morning.

Churches would like you to believe that the Bible is full of wonderful golden nuggets and is a story of love. This is the first post in a series of posts entitled “The Bible they don’t teach in Church.” We’re going to show you the hundreds of scriptures that Christians wish weren’t in the Bible. [...]
Background I was raised in a small town in Texas in a Christian family. In Texas there’s either a Baptist Church or a Church of Christ on every street corner. I would attend Church and Sunday “school” every Sunday morning. I remember all of the Bible stories and to this day I can still recite [...]
One of the things I hear most often from Christians (particularly fundamentalist Christians) is that the Bible is the inerrant, perfect word of God. ”Divinely authored through his chosen disciples.” And when I say “If it is inerrant then how do you deal with all of the errors?” This usually turns into a debate. A [...]
This shouldn’t be very controversial at all. An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama’s socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a [...]
It’s time to put Noah’s Ark on trial. I’m just going to present that facts, and I ask you to be the judge. I am going to assume, regardless of religious belief that there were no dinosaurs on the ark, but if you choose to believe there were, then you can just add those numbers, [...]
I heard this when I was 20 and I still think it fits today: ”The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Christians who acknowledge Jesus with their lips then walk out the door and deny him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply find unbelievable.” I know Christians [...]
