Capella‚Äôs Guide to Religion

06/05/2010

Although this site calls itself a “guide to atheism”, most of its focus is on problems with religion, especially Christianity. This is reflected in the numerous articles about supposed contradictions in the bible and inconsistencies in the Christian belief system. These articles are grouped into sections with titles such as “Atrocities and deviant behavior by key Bible figures”, “Peculiar Bible verses”, “Problems with common Christian doctrines”, “Recognizing false and illogical arguments”, “Problems with the Bible flood story”, and “The Greek roots of Christianity”.

A special section contains critiques of common arguments that Christians use to support creationism and intelligent design theories. There is also a section about failed prophesies.

At this point I will give a warning about this site, because many Christians will find some parts of it to be offensive. For example, an article called “Was Jesus just another Doomsday Cult Leader?” tries to point out similarities between Jesus and modern cult leaders such as Charles Manson, Jim Jones, and David Koresh. This is obviously wrong, since Jesus was against the use of violence, whereas Manson, Jones, and Koresh caused the deaths of many people.

If, despite my warning, you still want to visit this website, you can find it at Capella’s Guide to Atheism.
