An Atheist Reads The Case for Christ: Chapter 7

"I went to an evangelical school through middle school and we read the "for teens" version of this book in 8th grade. That book was the reason I started questioning the validity of the bible. The "proof" that was presented was…"

"At first, I thought this was one of the worst shows on tv. However, by taking an entirely different mindset, it has become one of my favorites. Here is why... If you follow politics at all, you will remember onetime republican presidential hopeful…"

Alex replied to dragotron's discussion 'I'm not religious, I'm spiritual'
