This is a famous but very controversial piece by Bertrand Russell. It was a lecture delivered in 1927 at National Secular Society, London. Later in 1957 it was part of a book with the same title and reached international fame. He examines one by one several highly regarded arguments for the existence (or necessity) of God. His main point however is the possibility of morality based on another principle than God. It is quite a challenging reading and one we must all face, regardless of our belief or lack of it, thereof. Enjoy!
Poor attempt to debase
Pretty poor explanation of why Christianity should not be believed. Misquotes and out of context translations are used throughout and still his argument doesn't seem to address the main issues with Christianity or the thrust of it either.
Why I am not a Christian
Great book. Quick read. He asks the same questions I do. He reads the bible using logic.
Why did Jesus tell his disciples that he would return in their lifetime?
I never hear anyone ask that question, and most Christians don't even know that Jesus said that.
Please read the bible. It will give you more questions than answers.
I love this essay for two reasons: it echoes my opinion and it is TRUE!!!
