"This is a short writing in which I assess the somewhat crazy notion that "atheism can be proven irrational by the means of material gods." A year ago I came across this essay, titled "Jumalat ovat todistetusti olemassa" (English…"

Great to haer from you! So many people join and then just fade away. I am happy to hear that their is little resistance to atheistic viewpoints in Finland. Unfortunately it is not like that here.
