WE ARE ONLY AS BLIND AS WE WANT TO BE.
— MAYA ANGELOU

 

If truth is important to you, then you've got nothing to be afraid of.  Searching for it can only lead you to a more real and fulfilling life. 

Honest investigation is the truths best friend.  

So I encourage you, start asking hard questions, it's the most honest thing you can do.

 

 

YouTube Channels to follow:

 

TheraminTrees:  Knowledge is one thing.  Communicating knowledge is something else.  This guy is amazing at making tricky topics really easy to understand, and makes powerful points in doing so. https://www.youtube.com/user/TheraminTrees/videos

NonStampCollector:  Really good videos questioning different stories in the bible.  He highlights many areas I never considered while I was a Christian.  https://www.youtube.com/user/NonStampCollector/videos

QualiaSoup:  Good videos on Morality, Faith and Evolution.  https://www.youtube.com/user/QualiaSoup/videos

Theoretical Bullshit: Scott is shall we say, quite strong about his views on God, but he's a very bright cookie.  This is my favourite of his. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DvRPbsXBVBo

Matt Dillahunty: Matt’s an ex-Christian.  He has an absolute wealth of knowledge.  He’s heard every apologetic argument under the sun that Christians could throw at him.  https://www.youtube.com/user/SansDeity/videos

DarkMatter2525  It’s a very popular channel, and you may be offended by these videos.  Some are quite blunt and crude, but he makes very powerful points.  https://www.youtube.com/user/DarkMatter2525/videos

CrashCourse:  A crash course in philosophy relating to God.  Sounds a little boring, but it's actually presented quite well!  https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL8dPuuaLjXtNgK6MZucdYldNkMybYIHKR

Books To Read:

 Challenging books for Christians.

For now, I’m just going to recommend one book to read.

50 Simple Questions For Every Christian.  By Guy Harrison  It’s a very easy read with short chapters, and asks genuine and real questions about Christian belief.  I highly recommend this book.  Totally worth the $25 to buy it.
