Women at the Tomb? Weak Evidence for the Resurrection.

Apologists love to bring up the women at the tomb. Women weren’t reliable witnesses in Jewish culture at the time, so why would the gospel authors place them there if the story weren’t true? However, a little scrutiny unravels this story. [Read more...]

It’s Funny Until Someone Gets Hurt, then it’s Hilarious

There is a bit of malicious joy in sitting at the sidelines watching the nutty Christian extremists make their nutty anti-science statements. Turns out that there’s a lot more harm to the Christian community than simply making fools of themselves. [Read more...]

What Does the Bible Say About Abortion? Not Much.

God has no problem killing men, women, and children, so what’s the big deal? There’s no prohibition against abortion in the Bible. And that “thou shalt not murder” thing? It’s not even in the Ten Commandments. [Read more...]

What’s Wrong with the Pro-Life Position?

Why is Christianity’s claim to answer the new questions any less so? [Read more...]

Can Christian Scholars Be Objective?

Christian scholar Michael Licona recently made one small challenge to the inerrancy of scripture, and that intellectual honest cost him his job. This shows what can happen if a Christian scholar follows the facts where they lead. More importantly, it means that anything written by a Christian scholar bound by his university’s statement of faith is suspect. [Read more...]

An Inept Attempt to Defang the Problem of Evil

Christian apologist Greg Kokul tries to turn the tables on the atheist who proposes the Problem of Evil, but his argument collapses into cogently-argued rubble. [Read more...]

Christianity Can Rot Your Brain

God commands a lot of genocide in the Bible. Apparently feeling compelled to justify the savagery of his favorite deity, apologist William Lane Craig actually argues that the slaughter was justified and righteous. [Read more...]
