Reading Time: 2 minutes Hasn’t every third person you know read “Buddha’s Tooth” by now? The book is somewhat about a mislaid molar of the historical Buddha—a forgotten tooth, found and duly deemed a dentine relic, so much so that an actual Temple was built over its final resting place. The bones of St. Stephen (ample enough to reconstruct […]
Reading Time: 9 minutes Asked last year during a Zoom talk I gave to a UK Humanist group what book, if any, had the greatest influence on my life, I got blank stares when I proffered the name of a publication none had ever heard of: Jacobsen’s Index to Objectionable Literature. By around 1970, Jacobsen’s comprised a list of […]
Reading Time: < 1 minute I am putting the finishing touches on my new book 30 Arguments Against the Existence of “God”, Divine Design, Heaven, Hell, and Satan. I have really enjoyed writing it and hope my beta readers (who have seen it in different layers of finishedness) have enjoyed it too. But what really pleases me is that Dan […]

Reading Time: 10 minutes make informed decisions about their own fates. Not even his extra-imaginary imaginary god can make that happen for him.
Reading Time: 8 minutes Today, let’s review The Great Divorce — and get an idea of how its ideas have unfortunately infested Christians’ thinking today.
Reading Time: 3 minutes I was contacted recently by Dr DJ Nicholls, who had bought my books on the Resurrection and Nativity after reading my one on free will (one that I seriously need to rewrite and was on the cards for such this year before other projects jumped in!). He is a former evangelical who then went on […]
Reading Time: 5 minutes I wish people would read what I write and then interact with it, rather than just posting the same erroneous conclusions on my threads. It’s really frustrating, because I have debunked their position until they can show me I haven’t. Here is Person223’s latest rehash of the same tired old baloney: People do have the […]
