God or Godless?: One Atheist. One Christian. Twenty Controversial Questions.
God or Godless?: One Atheist. One Christian. Twenty Controversial Questions.
Price: £4.03

5.0 out of 5 stars Godless wins the debate., 18 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found John W. lotus to be the most informed and persuasive by far in this series of questions. His opponent, Randal Rauser, ignored most of points made and came over as completely inadequate.

I'd certainly recommend this book to Christian and Atheist alike to judge for themselves. The 20 questions covered are succinct but to the point.

Since each question is short the book can be read in short intervals. This kindle edition is excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best criticisms of the Bible on record, 18 Nov. 2014

One of the best criticisms of the Bible on record! It really is that good. The author is out to expose the Bible for the often horrible book it is, and he does it to perfection.

A must !

4.0 out of 5 stars Manipulating the biblical text for the faithful., 9 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a interesting read for those of us who have a open mind. The authors of done a excellent job in encouraging us to look behind the Christian spin.

The authors argue that Informed Christian pastors realize that the Church is a business and do not want to create doubts among its members. So they present the Bible as God's inerrant word while ignoring evidence within the Bible that contradicts such a view.

"Biblical Manipulation" is not a difficult read. I was aware of many of the problems it brings out. Such as the Bible contains lots of real genuine errors and that the Gospel of Mark ends at 16: 8. Not all of Paul's letters were written by him and some are forgeries. The story of the woman taken in adultery is "a 5the century addition. It's not in the earliest manuscripts.

The chapter dealing with biblical characters who should have remembered but do not is a particular favourite of mine. We have Mary behaving as if she didn't know Jesus was special in the eyes of God and the disciples act unaware that Jesus can make a few fish and bread miraculously become more to feed thousands a second time.

I wish Christians would read a book like this because it will show them that the Bible is not what their pastors say it is. The chapter on prophecies is another eye-opener on how the New Testament authors took Old Testament text out of context in order to create the truth of their faith.

I have no hesitation in recommending this book.


Western Values versus The Gospels - what Jesus really values and why we shouldn't agree with him
Western Values versus The Gospels - what Jesus really values and why we shouldn't agree with him
Price: £7.49

4.0 out of 5 stars Why we should disagree with the values of Jesus., 11 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In this fascinating book, Woolcock puts the teaching of Jesus (or whatever wrong his script) into its theological context in comparison with western values and shows us how inadequate and unbalanced such pious teaching is for us today.

Woolcock"s understanding of the biblical Jesus reveals him to be completely obsessed with God and the need for people to be the same and to accept his insights into God's character. For Jesus, people only have value within ''his theological world.'' Those who don't share his teaching are condemned.

I heartily recommend this book to believer and unbelievable alike. In a word, fascinating.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest and most thought provoking disaster films ever made., 5 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What's interesting behind the excitement and suspense, is the subtext. What should we do when our world is turned upside down? Do we wait for something good to happen our get off our backsides and do something ourselves? For me it's a move about blind faith versus common sense.

The realist is in the character played by Gene Hackman, a questioning Christian, who unlike the other Christians on board the capsized ship, decides not to wait and pray, but to work his way, with others who are willing to follow him, out of the disaster.

None of this thoughtful subtext is in the 2006 remake, Poseidon, which although entertaining and visually stunning, is not as good as the original.

Challenging those who have been indoctrinated or blinded by faith is often difficult and can be very frustrating. This wonderfully informative look in how to do it without being nasty, gives us some great advice.

I would encourage freethinkers to read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertainment For All!, 30 Dec. 2012

This review is from: Watch Cartoons (App)
This app, which I downloaded onto my kindle fire, is a wonderfully entertaining collection of really imaginative Cartoons. The type that Hollywood has, with few exceptions, largely forgotten how to make anymore. It contains Goofy, Comicolor, Tex Avery, Betty Boop, Superman, Fleischer, Felix the Cat, Mighty Mouse, Mutt and Jeff, Micky Mouse and more to enjoy.

In a word, brilliant!

4.0 out of 5 stars Jesus, The Lunatic., 14 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It was C.S.Lewis who wrote, in Mere Christianity, that Jesus had to have been either a liar, lunatic or Lord. Werleman thinks, as I do, if the Gospel Jesus existed, ''he was a self-deluded madman... was indeed a liar and a lunatic. (p 2). Many will of course disagree and say the author is being far too harsh and over-reaching. However, the dictionary defines megalomania as: ''A psychopathological condition characterized by delusional fantasies of wealth, power, or omnipotence. An obsession with grandiose or extravagant things or actions,'' which is very like the Gospel Jesus.

This may be an rudimentary examination of the New Testament and its deluded hero Jesus, but it's often a comical delight to read. The highlight for me was chapter five 'The Gospels on Jesus' Adolescent Years', in particular, Werleman's hilarious review of 'The Gospel of Thomas, which was ''omitted by the Council of Nicea in AD 322'' (p76). Thomas provides us with a description of Jesus aged five to seven years of age, and he behaves therein like a mischievous, petulant, disobedient little monster. Perhaps this was the real reason that this Gospel didn't make it into the New Testament. Anyway, in Thomas, Jesus had murdered two children by age 5. One of the children that he murdered accidently ran into him, bumping his shoulder. So Jesus turned towards the unobservant youth and shouted: ''Thou shalt not live a full life!'' And With that curse, the young boy fell to the ground and died (p78).What a Jesus? But you know what some youths are like.

This is a entertaining and an informed critique of the New Testament. Well worth your time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reasoning Correctly And Incorrectly., 4 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is an education in the art of reasoning. Something few of us are actually any good at. It's an wonderfully entertaining read for those of us who would like to argue or debate or for those who would like to improve their reasoning skills. And since it's written for the layperson, no specialist knowledge is required.

The amount of bad logic and fallacious reasoning that's exposed in each of the over 300 examples had me transfixed. Fascinating and enlightening for those of us who are willing to learn. It's those who argue for the the supernatural that come out of this book the worst, by far. In the Introduction, the author says: ''In debating claims against the supernatural, I have found that in virtually all situations, what is trying to be passed off as a magically delicious argument, it is actually just logically fallacious - no magic involved.'' But we're all guilty at times of using logic incorrectly. Everyone of us! If you don't believe me, then read this book. You'll be surprised!
