I’ve recently thought about refuting several Christian apologetic articles, but that will take a lot of time and energy that I cannot devote in the meantime. I am also in the process of “cooling down.” You see, I’m the kind of person to get pissed off during an internet flame war and all, and frankly, I need to just chill. Bashing isn’t useful, question and debate are. So, for the aforementioned reasons, I have decided to do something else for now. I’m going to post links to articles on critical thinking and free thought, ’cause they’re awesome, and showing readers how to detect bullsh*t is arguably much more useful than pointing out every logical fallacy contained in every wacko’s articles on every unreasonable apologist’s site. So, without further ado, here is an introduction (for believers and non-believers), starting with some basic arguments for atheism and Biblical issues (Note: the majority of these articles where authored by Mr. Austin Cline from atheism.about.com. A Very special thank you to him, since I’m not the one who did any real work just now. I only posted links to his articles):
