Big Bang

"In the beginning there was nothing at all. To the north and south of the nothingness lay regions of fire and frost." ~ Snorri Sturluson 1220 CE

The Christian God's Foibles (God is Flawed)

This (reworked) satirical piece challenges Christians (I know there's at least a few of you out there) to take a serious look at their dogmas and doctrines.
