Yes, another lame short post today, but this one at least has a good point. Probably just pet pictures tomorrow. More mixed yoke stories coming soon, and another post about abortion, this time refuting the apple argument against it, as soon as I discipline myself to sit down and write it.

Usually, those means include things like “lying for Jesus” and appeals to fear or … More On Bad Apologetics
At least once a month, I’ll find a thread on a subreddit I frequent about someone’s struggle with being an atheist dating a Christian. Inevitably, there will be a flood of comments advising the person to drop their significant other like a hot potato, even in the case of someone who has been in a relationship … More Dating a Christian Isn’t Necessarily a Bad Idea
I came across this list: “The Top 20 Bible Passages to Use Against Fundamentalists” While I was reading it, I could not help but think of exactly how a fundamentalist might respond to these arguments.
