One of my favorite books is entitled Rejection of Pascal's Wager. It is a fantastic book that walks you through the myths, lies and evils of the Bible and the a christian church.

I challenge all Christians to read it and see if they feel the same way. You can read it for free at rejectionofpascalswager.net
1) Whatever has contradictory attributes does not exist.
2) The Biblical God has contradictory attributes.
3) Therefore, the Biblical God does not exist

Interesting book...I might try to read 'Rejection of Pascal's Wager: A Skeptic's Guide' some time, though I am now engaged in reading a couple of other books of my liking.

Pascal's Wager is the weakest argument for God, indeed it can't even be described as an argument for God. An atheistic work that pays homage to it, that does not bode too well.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

No, but I'll debate you on anyone of the books contentions.

I see how to read it for free from the site, they want me to buy the book.
I too would like to debate you on Pascal's wager. It used to be one of my least favorite profs. Then I realized it isn't a Prof at all, it is an extremely powerful argument. It is now one of my favorite. I will accept challenges on it.

Deal. Accept my challenge.

I put a message on it if you correct that one word I will accept.
