Atheism, Culture, Ethics

Online Reading (December 12, 2007)

Atheism: A friend of a friend writes a fairly insightful review of Bertrand Russell’s “Why I am Not a Christian”. Many of the comments actually fit much of modern atheism.

Technology: You can now download TV episodes on itunes. Yay! Now I can get the stuff I’ve been avoiding for a decade by not owning a TV.

Media: Darell Bock comments on how Christians should respond to the many “documentaries” (and yes, I mean the scare quotes) produced to shake Christianity.

CBC: Speaking of which, the CBC recently aired a documentary based on Tom Harpur’s “The Pagan Christ” (which I can buy at the Anglican book store here in St. John’s with study guides). The tin-foil-hat-wearing thesis is that history has lied about the EXISTENCE of Jesus.
