ORIGINS: UNIVERSE, LIFE, HUMANKIND, AND DARWIN

We debate origins of the Universe, life, Earth, humans, religion, atheism, using common sense, evolution, cosmology, geology, archaeology, and other sciences, to repel biblical creationism and other religious beliefs.

About Me:
About a year ago, I was organizing street evangelism groups for my Church and working on a Master’s Thesis on Old Testament at the Toronto School of Theology. It was in the midst of a life packed with service to the Lord that I became increasingly aware of my emotional and intellectual dissatisfaction with the faith that I professed.

My forthcoming book, Still Small Voices, is a mixture of personal testimony, analysis and arguments. I begin most chapters by telling stories of particular moments during my eight year experience as a Christian that I found myself hearing another “still small voice,” the voice of reason, which constantly whispered that something about my worldview did not add up. I record the difficult moments when I fruitlessly struggled to reconcile the violence and misogyny in the Bible with my own moral compass. Throughout the book, I record my efforts to ignore and suppress that voice and how ultimately, I had to relent.

In addition, in each chapter, I spend some time doing a bit of atheist apologia. For example, in my chapter, “the Cross of Christ,” I argue that Christ’s sacrifice on the cross—a minor inconvenience for an eternal being—is insufficient to compel humanity to sacrifice their very finite life on Earth in service to him; assuming the unlikely possibility Christ actually did die for our sins, it’s the least the creator of the universe can do.

I have come to recognize the harm that such false beliefs has brought in my life and continues to bring to the lives of believers, and I want to make a contribution to the growing atheist movement.

I have written this book because I have seen through my interaction with believers that all Christians hear the other still small voice and I want to encourage them to listen to it.

I also recommend Eco-Logical and Climate Concerns, since the climate is changing so drastically.

After you've searched for topics of interest in "Groups" above and in the "Forums", don't forget to look at recent activity which hides along the right margin of the page all the way at the bottom.
