Atheist Bible Study

Believers study the bible for inspiration, doctrine, etc.  Non-believers can study it to point out absurdity, contradiction, and other negative points, as a sort of "anti-apologetics." After all, lots of folks became atheists after they actually read the bible, and realized how ludicrous it is!See More

Stigmata

As a former catholic when I was younger I was always interested in reading about people bearing the stigmata.  Im sure most if not all of you have heard about Padre Pio, probably the most well known stigmatic in history.  Now as an atheist I am wanting to know of any serious articles or books that have been written debunking stigmata.  My whole take on it is people that are self mutilating themselves and passing it off as the wounds of christ from the crucifixion.  But I dont believe that Jesus…See More

About Me:
I was raised Catholic my entire life. I started having serious doubts when i actually started reading the bible and realized that we werent taught in my childhood sunday school class everything the bible says. I now consider it a horrible, disgusting book filled with unspeakable horrors that no loving god could ever permit. How ANY believer could read it and still have their faith is beyond me. I would like to sit down with any christian and go over their holy book with them and see how much they really know. I am a member of American Atheists and the Freedom from Religion Foundation. I am also an ordained minister in the First Church of Atheism.
