Hell ain't all that bad after all

This article in the New York Times is good for a few laughs. Apparently some so-called Bible scholars are suggesting that those who go to hell don't really have to suffer for eternity, just for "a…Continue

New books on the secular life

I came across this article in Publisher's Weekly online. Living SecularA lot of the books out there that deal with the subject of atheism tend to be argumentative rather than supportive, and it appears that there's a new trend in books that focus on lifestyle, rather than argument. These can be good for people who…See More

Nick Bottom replied to Deidre's discussion Dogmatic atheism?
