Excerpts from “Christianity vs Critical Thinking”

“The God wants a blemish-free sacrifice; sin-free. Yet Jesus was born of Mary, who as a human, must also have sin from Adam.”

from Question 9

“Why must a person be damned on the basis belief? Might a righteous and good person be dammed, while a believing scoundrel be heaven bound?”

from Question 4

“Thus, given a priori God exists, God must also be all-knowing. That fact alone, among others, disqualifies the existence of an eternal torture chamber called Hell. Here is why…”

from Question 8

“Was the story of Adam & Eve an actual historical event, or an allegory; a story, handed down through the generations as scientific fact?”

from Question 7

“..for I, Jehovah your God, am a God who requires exclusive devotion, bringing punishment for the error of fathers upon sons, upon the third generation and upon the fourth generation of those who hate me,”

from Question 6

“Instead, just within Christianity alone, there are at least 10,000 different official interpretations (denominations) of His message. And this doesn’t include the multitude of other religions…”

from Question 3

“It is assumed that what sets apart the divine from the worldly is that the divine is assumed to be of truth. A truth is trustworthy because it is the actual state of affairs. It can be depended on to be accurate.”

from Question 5

“One must understand, in defense of Jesus, that there is no record of Jesus of Nazareth ever having said or written anything whatsoever, historically. That is to say, everything ever written about Jesus, what he said, what he did, what he thought, has been attributed to him, by what others wrote.”

from Question 10

“To quote Martin Luther, (of Lutheranism – a major branch of Western Christianity), “Faith must trample under foot all reason, sense, and understanding.” More succinctly, also by Martin Luther, “Reason is the enemy of faith.”

from Question 2


From the Medieval Inquisitions (circa 12th- and 13th-century) to the 9-11 attacks (21st century), religious terrorism continues to horrify our existence in the name of someone’s God. Why? And what can we do to end centuries of violence and error?


Religious terrorism has an Achilles’ Heel; an exceedingly vulnerable weak spot. But in order to expose it you have to have courage; the courage to ask just a few important questions out loud and in the open. Do you?

“A false belief, though held in faith, is false still – and thus cannot be of the divine.
Seek, therefore, not faith but truth.”

~ Dorian Greer
