This weeks’ post will be ready in about 3 hours as I just converted to Christianity. I was given an argument by another Christian that persuaded me beyond doubt that Jesus rose from the dead. I don’t know how I missed it before. Apparently the reason Easter Eggs are hollow is to celebrate the FACT that the tomb was hollow when the followers of Jesus got there. So take that atheists!!
OK, I found it all unbelievable and have become an atheist again. I must have had a sugar rush from all that chocolate! Nah, there are many reasons I don’t believe in any god and here are a few of them. Oh yeah and these kind of stupid arguments which are painful especially when suffering from a sugar crash.
I have posted many links on the sexual abuse of children by Catholics, Evangelicals, various Protestant sects and Jehovah Witnesses over the last few years so in order not to seem biased I think it only fair that I include the Mormons too. A Baptist pastor believes he has a solution to the problem without realizing it is actually a major cause of the problem.

A fresh look at the story of our human evolution. If the Rift Valley in Africa were to split in two we could lose much of the fossil evidence there. We may be more closely related to each other than we think we are, thanks to previous generations of social inequality.
