About 50 people attended. What I learned, even from Christian scholars, was shocking to me.
The Bible is full of contradictions. The New Testament authors have different theologies, and in fact the mission of Paul was quite different than the mission of Jesus, and it was the mission of Paul that became Christianity as we know it today.
So Christianity should really be called Paulinism.
This was all pretty scary for me, because all my dreams, all my plans, all my relationships, all my comfort revolved around me being a Christian.
So I read the works of conservative Christian historians and philosophers to try to recover my faith, but just to be fair I read a little bit of skeptical material as well, and I found that what the skeptics said made plain, simple sense, and meanwhile the Christian apologists had to do intellectual bacflips just to say Christianity was defensible.
So I lost my faith and now I run a popular website about atheism and morality. Why the New Atheists Failed. Atheists are coming out of the closet in droves. And atheism books are selling millions of copies, for the first time ever.

This is a question that a 5-year-old can ask. And scientists know this. Many years ago, physicists posited atoms to explain certain observations — and they were right, even though they had no idea what could explain atoms themselves.
And now they posit electrons and photons and so on even though they cannot explain electrons and photons themselves. Well, this brings me to the second part of my speech: And this is how you defeat all religious arguments in one easy step.
God is the best explanation for why something exists rather than nothing. God is the best explanation for certain complex things.
God is the best explanation for why some things are really right and wrong. And here are some other arguments proposed by the most important Christian philosopher alive today, Alvin Plantinga: God is the best explanation for the existence of mathematical sets.Religious Sects - Assignment Example On In Assignment Sample Some sociologists such as Stephen Moore believe that a sect is a type of religious organization which involves the idea that a sect is usually fairly small in membership and very exclusive in their acceptance of members.
