Five Things You Have Wrong About Christianity

Five Things You Have Wrong About Christianity

Which of these do you believe are true about Christianity in today’s world? 1. Christianity in our age is primarily a North American/European religion. 2.

Stenger Should Stick To Physics

Stenger Should Stick To Physics

Victor Stenger, atheist physicist, emeritus professor at the University of Hawaii, writes in New Scientist of why scientists ought to stick to their own competencies.

Richards and Hitchens Debate Intelligent Design at Stanford

I’m hoping it won’t be long before we can see this on video: last night’s debate between Jay Richards and Christopher HItchens on Intelligent Design. Stanford Daily Online reported on it, including this: Hitchens then requested the chance to ask Richards a question. “Do you believe Jesus Christ was born of a virgin?” he asked when Richards assented. “Do you believe he was resurrected from the dead?” Richards said that he did. “I rest my case,” said Hitchens. “This is…
