A Magazine Non-Christians Need to be Warned About

It's as though Christians know non-Christians will not pick up one of their magazines and read it, which means that they have a free pass to write as much superstitious nonsense and cram as much supernatural guilt into every edition of Joy! Magazine as possible. Every non-believer who needs verification about the absurdity of the Christian faith definitely needs to skim through… Continue

Zakir Naik

BBC article:

An Indian Muslim preacher has been banned from entering the UK for his "unacceptable behaviour", the home secretary says.

Zakir Naik, a 44-year-old television preacher, had been due to give a series of lectures in London and Sheffield.

Theresa May said that visiting the UK was "a privilege, not a right".

Not a True Christian

I absolutely despise this phrase: "They aren't True Christians." People just love bandying it about left, right and center as it suits them and it has become a rather abusive, repetitive term, which both camouflages hypocrisy and vindictiveness as well as serves as an automatic conversation stopper and verbal passing-of-the-proverbial-buck. It is a dangerous and unintellectual way out of an argumentative corner.



The emotional connotations of this term involve the speaker immediately… Continue

The Incompatibility of Science & Religion

I have batted this topic around in my head for a couple of years now but when all is said and done I can not help but stick firmly to one side of the argument: Religion and science are extremely incompatible. I strongly feel that to embrace one is to deny the other.
