Not exactly a lightweight

It's the most popular religion on planet earth. But are its claims easily refuted, dismantled and debunked?

In this episode, we talk to John W. Loftus, a former minister and Christian educator with 3 masters degrees in theology and philosophy. A prolific speaker, author and blogger, Loftus speaks about his own journey out of faith and what he feels are effective ways to debunk Christianity.

From Minister to Honest Doubter, The Historical Evidence for Christianity?Is It Enough?

It?s just false to say that history provides justification for viewing history. Islam, another historical religion, has a longer history to it than Christianity.

A slight innacuracy [sic] with the article though - Islam is not older than Christianity. Islam was founded in 622 a.d.

Sorry about the mistake on Islam, I just didn't look it up 'cause I thought I remembered.....

If you want to really check out his credibility... since he pretty much just makes assertions... The bottom of this page http://www.tektonics.org/lp/creds.htm has some references that might allow a closer look at this referral of this heavy hitter.

If you want someone who really isn't a light weight and is actually a pretty aggressive anti-theist... Check this guy out. I am sure you will dig him and he at least poses a somewhat thought out reasoning:

At the very least it is good to hear from someone with an attention to detail and the ability to articulate them.
