The Bible As It Is

For all those who very much enjoy studying the Bible as Literature. Along with that comes the ability to appreciate humor and satire based on it, not to mention making fun of people who take these stories literally.

Dawkins, The Magic of Reality

Dawkins outlines in simple terms how the scientific method works, but what he really warms to is false knowledge of the kind he calls supernatural.

The Bible & Science

The Bible is not a book of science, though the first Chapter of Genesis, as the nineteenth-century sociologist Max Weber points out, is the necessary prelude to science. It represents the first time people saw the universe as the product of a single creative will, and therefore as intelligible rather than capricious and mysterious.Nature has no divinity. Indeed, in the Hebrew Bible, it became “undeified” as G. W. F. Hegel put it. Hegel observed (in lectures notes his students published after…See More

Getting Rid of God: Where did the Big Bang Happen?

Try to recall who God was for you when you were a child. List key concepts you learned about God when you were growing up. What or who was the source for your information – parents, friends, TV, religious education? Take one minute and write any word association that you now have with the word “God.” Try not to think, just write whatever comes to your mind. Can you remember a time when you felt jealous, angry, or resentful toward God? Can you take those events and reframe them into more…See More

Sylvester II – The Scientist Pope



He arose from humble beginnings as a monk to the papacy on account of his scientific knowledge, not in spite of it. In his day, the earth was not flat. People were not terrified that the world would end at the stroke of midnight on December 31, 999. Christians did not believe Muslims and Jews were the devil’s spawn.



The Church was not anti-science: just the reverse. Mathematics ranked among the highest forms of worship, for… Continue

For the past decade, Ayaan Hirsi Ali has stood at the forefront of new thought in the philosophy of Islam and its explanation, and Europeans have plenty to learn from her brave commitment to Enlightenment values – in the face of all that extremism.

Claudia, the text coloring on your post about Dawkins was cause because it was copied and pasted from a location with applied formatting into the Rich Text editor. I've edited the post so that it displays correctly. In the future you can avoid this by either clearing the formats after pasting in, or clicking the HTML tab first then pasting.
