Part II "Ten Reasons Not To Believe"

The next essay in Pot Stories and Humanist Essays is “Ten Reasons Not To Believe.”  A couple of them are unique and especially important as they are key ideas in my philosophy and worldview.  Number One, of course, is obvious and should occur to everybody at one time or another.  God knows where you’re going, heaven or hell, and if the latter, created you anyway.  Think of it:  a constant, torturous, hopeless state of eternal pain and suffering.  No hope of ever getting out. …
