I’m an anonymous 40+ year old homosapien residing in Northern California. I have a Christian wife, two wonderful children, and a dog.
By day, I’m a mild mannered former Christian (I was Pentecostal for roughly 30 years), and by night I’m a veracious skeptic looking down every corner and back alley for solid evidence to support my failing faith in God and Christianity.
Admittedly, I’m playing devil’s advocate with these questions; my objective is to challenge the God hypothesis with a multitude of random skeptical questions to see if it holds up in comparison to natural explanations.
In most posts, I try to answer the same question using both Christian and natural explanations. There are often wide chasms between these two world views, but I believe the bulk of the evidence must surely point more in one direction than the other.
Why You Should Listen to Me
You shouldn’t! Hell, I’m just some random bloke on the internet, and I might be totally wrong! You should think for yourself, try to understand both sides of the debate, and be wary of anyone who tells you how you should think.
Also, I’m not an expert in all the areas I discuss, but if one must be an expert in everything in order to find God, then we’re all in serious trouble. Hopefully, an honest assessment of the evidence will lead us to the truth. If it doesn’t, then God has designed a very misleading universe.
But personally, I find these questions fascinating, which is why I spend a fair amount of time carefully researching and pondering each one. I try to make each answer honest, sincere, concise, factual, entertaining, and educational. However… if you can’t handle religion being discussed with some occasional humor and irreverence, you’re going to have a bad time.
If I only have one life to live, I want to spend it laughing and enjoying it as much as possible, but I also want to try and gain an accurate understanding of reality… whenever I’m not too busy.
