671px-Koran_cover_calligraphy

In what seems like a regular occurrence in the modern world, more scientific evidence suggests that yet another religion is based on absolute nonsense.Islamic scholars overwhelmingly claim that the Islamic Prophet Muhammad lived between 570 and 632 A.D. Yet carbon dating of a fragment from a Koran kept at a library in Birmingham suggests that the book was produced between 568 and 645 A.D.That places the Koran as being written during Mohammed's childhood or even before his birth. Throwing … [Read more...]

5 things I learned by attending Ken Ham’s Answers Conference

Screen Shot 2015-07-13 at 12.38.47 PM

Even luckier for me, admission was free, so I went. I even got to meet Ken Ham. Really.I’m not going to write some long diatribe about all the falsehoods spilling out of Ken Ham's mouth. It’s simply too easy and, frankly, somewhat boring to tread over that well-trod ground. Like my friend Chris told m … [Read more...]
