Fastest Way to Shut Christians Up

At least with regards to the existence of Jesus, I always point out that we simply have no objective evidence whatsoever that Jesus ever actually lived.  We have no forensic evidence, we have no contemporary eyewitness accounts, everything we have is myth and hearsay.  Christians don’t like that. Often, they will claim that if we […]






No Evidence For Jesus

I know I just wrote an article about this, but this happens to be an ongoing debate and I find it absolutely hysterical how it’s going down.  I argued that we don’t have any actual evidence for the existence of Jesus and watched the Christians come out of the woodwork screaming that there was.

Religious Belief and Charity

Irrational Rationalizations

Once again, the absurdity of irrational rationalizations strikes, in a ridiculously common way. Now that Mother Teresa has been granted sainthood, the crazy religious are out in force, attacking anyone who criticizes the life and beliefs of Mother Teresa.  I wrote about this a very long time ago and got pretty much the same reaction […]
