By Winston Wu


 Revised 2011



Praises and Reviews


“I work at a public library and thus have access to hundreds of books on religion and spirituality, yet very, very few are as helpful as the one article that you have written. There is even a book titled "Leaving the fold" that is for former fundamentalists leaving their religion, yet your article is arguably better and more useful then the entire book.”

- Ian


“Congratulations on an excellent site.  Your information on evangelical fundamentalist Christianity is the BEST site on the internet.  It spells everything out.  Try to get the search engines to bring it up near the top of searches.”

- Kevin


“I discovered this website while doing some research into Christian Fundamentalism and Atheistic Dogma. I was blown away by how well the arguments against Christianity were, specifically because they lacked emotion fueled "Logic".”

Debunking the Main Arguments

Argument # 1:  The Bible is the Infallible Word of God. 

- Three verses that say the Bible is NOT the word of God

Argument # 2:  The Bible is inerrant and contains no contradictions.  Its 66 books are harmonious and its 40+ writers agree on what they wrote. 

- Use of foreshadowing

- Literary dialogue

- Contradictions and discrepancies

- The “read the Bible in its context” argument

Argument # 3:  The Fulfilled Prophecies Argument. 

- Imaginary messianic prophecies

- Nonexistent prophecies

- Failed, expired, and unfulfilled prophecies

Argument # 4:  The Bible is a reliable historical document because it agrees with recorded history and archaeological evidence.

Argument # 5:  The Bible is the word of God because it agrees with science and contains scientific facts.

False scientific facts in the Bible

- Insects do not have four feet

- Rabbits do not chew their cud

- Snakes, while built low, do not eat dirt nor dust

- The bat is not a bird

- Snails do not melt

- The Earth is not flat

- The Earth is not motionless

- Stars are not little balls of light close to the Earth

Argument # 6:  The Historicity of Jesus Argument.

Argument # 7:  The Resurrection of Jesus Christ Argument.

Arguments for the Historicity of the Resurrection

- The empty tomb argument

- The “Apostles would not knowingly die for a lie” argument

Argument # 8:  The Trilemma Argument - Lord, Liar, or Lunatic?

Argument # 9:  The Pascal’s Wager Argument.

Argument # 10:  The Testimonials and Changed Lives Argument.

- Related argument: All non-Christians are empty and unhappy without Christ

Argument # 11:  The Miracles and Answered Prayers Argument.

- Analysis of the Atheist explanation for miracles

- Analysis of the Atheist explanation for answered prayers

- My own theory on how and why prayer works

Argument # 12:  Christianity is not a religion. It is a personal relationship with God.

Argument # 13:  God is holy and righteous. We are all sinners and deserve to go to hell.

Argument # 14:  All other religions are the work of Satan.

Argument # 15:  The “Taking the Lord’s name in vain = power” Argument.
