"I gave up on the first sentence of his first point. The idea that everything requires a creator is fatally flawed, in that whatever that creator was, would need a creator, and would've existed outside of the existence he had yet to create."
"It must've been around 2005 when I picked up God Is Not Great (GING). I'd already read Dawkins' book and enjoyed it, though the final chapter - which focused on the science - saw my attention wane. I did not experience this at any…"
"Thanks for your answer Bob! Totally agree- it is absolutely socking that in this day and age children are being sacrificed for a better harvest! :0 We should ALL know better. And my New Years Resolution was to earn more about various religions…"
