Just a quick post to introduce folks the my most favorite blog called Debunking Christianity which is run by somebody i considder a friend whos name is John Loftus.
Here is the link : http://debunkingchristianity.blogspot.com/
John Loftus runs a blog that is choca full of information, specially for christians who might be feeling some doubt of their beliefs and might be feeling fearful of some thoughts running around and around through their head. John explains what happened when he started having his own doubts and goes through explaining many good reason why the christian faith surely seems rather unbelievable . This blog to me is a very special place. A place that has lots and lots of character and also a very friendly group of people who visit, being both christian and atheist who mostly do get on pretty well . Naturally there are the odd times when frustration gets the better of folks , sadly including myself this i must admit . But just because im a non believer this dont mean i claim to be perfect at all. This is a blog where squabbles can break out and tempers may fly a little at times ,and yet mostly i have not seen anybody really hating on anyone.
There were some folks who had/have some type of personal dislike/hate/grudge for John , they seemed to like trying to gang up and tried picking on him , even called themselves christian too . Naturally this type of action can often bring out some of the worst in us for awhile , which i personally suspect is maybe even what it was actually most likely purposely designed to try to do . Best we can do is just always try to learn something from such experiences.
John Loftus has been involved in writing books and his latest book he was involved in is called :The Christian Delusion: Why Faith Fails
There was actually nine authors or maybe its actually ten including John involved in this particular book that include Hector Avalos, Ph.D…., Edward Babinski …., Dan Barker ,… Richard Carrier, Ph.D., ….David Eller, Ph.D., …..John W. Loftus, M.A., M.Div., Th.M……, Jason Long, Ph.D.,….. Robert Price, Ph.D.,…. Valerie Tarico, Ph.D., …..Paul Tobin
There was of course the usual bullshit reviews put forward from the personal hate crew who will do anything they can to try to slander people they have a personal grdge for
. But still there has been many other more honest unbiased views put forward from both atheist as well as very many faithful .
I suggest folks get to know John a little , he is a pretty alright guy by my books . Infact i happen to like him a whole lot . He is very down to earth and totally approachable by both christians and atheists alike. This is a guy who although having become atheist himself still happens to have time for christians and trys his best to still have some respect for them .
