More on Mormonism and Christianity

Next in the series after this post. When archaeology shows religion is wrong I haven’t even mentioned the most conclusive evidence against the truth of Mormonism. You see, the Book of Mormon—we’re talking about the most important piece of Mormon Scripture here–tells the story of a group of ancient Israelites who supposedly set sail for [Read More...]

Mormonism, Golden Plates, and Egyptian Papyri

This post is another excerpt from one of the draft chapters from my book beta-testing project. In our tolerant, multicultural age, for a lot of people it’s not just their own religion they think highly of. Instead, they carry around in their heads a short list of religions that they see as the good religions. [Read More...]

The Big Bad Dawkins Quote

It occurred to me that I could spin off small sections from the book I’m writing into blog posts. Giving people 6,000 words to read at once is kind of a burden, so it’s really in my interest to break things down into more digestible pieces. Also, in this particular case, taken from chapter 2, [Read More...]

Beta testing a book: The many gods I don’t believe in (yours included)

This chapter, titled “The many gods I don’t believe in (yours included),” is not quite finished. No “in this chapter,” only just started adding subheadings, and the endnotes aren’t done. Not much of a conclusion either. I could have spent more time on it, but I just got sick of writing it after awhile. The [Read More...]

Beta testing a book: Chapter 1: Don’t Panic!: On Finding Atheism Unfamiliar and Scary

In continuation of the plan I posted about last week, here’s  a draft of the first chapter of the book I’m working on. It’s called Don’t Panic!: On Finding Atheism Unfamiliar and Scary. Summary and a few other bits of info below the fold: [Read more...]
