BIBLE & CHRISTIANITY:

FAQ: "What is the meaning or purpose of life for an atheist?"    As a Christian minister asked me: "Why not just kill yourself now?"

FAQ: "What about faith?"    A response to religionists' arguments that religious faith is no different from our "faith" in science or history    

"A New Baby - God's Miracle?"     Brent Allsop argues that the miracle of a new baby shows the real cynicism of believers in God.

Prayer:    A critique of this essential element of most religions

A brief listing and description of some of these real prophets.

The Articles of Faith - with my commentary  

The Book of Mormon vs Mormonism     Many people assume that by reading the Book of Mormon one can learn about the Mormon religion. But Mormon doctrine is not based on this book, which often ignores or even contradicts what Mormons believe today, as this overview shows.

Hamblin, "Basic Methodological Problems with the Anti-Mormon Approach to the Geography and Archaeology of the Book of Mormon"   Hamblin's article suffers from most of the problems he accuses the "anti-Mormons" of - a case of the pot calling the kettle black
