We only have one life to live. We have one life to make the best sense of the world and figure out what is real. I for one, do not want to be intellectually dishonest with myself. I do not want to create a reality in my head independent of experience or evidence. As such, this blog is dedicated to critical thinking, intellectual honesty, and reading comprehension. Truth is the goal.

When I deal with people talking Negative Theology, they seem to discard reading comprehension (such as the fact that language is ambiguous and a phrase without context can have a large variety of meanings). When I talk to these people, I think to myself “What are you doing? Do you just want to be right or are you seeking truth? What evidence do we have to validate your belief? Does your evidence pass critical thinking tests? Or are you fashioning a reality based on what you want to be true.” It boggles my mind.

I see all these stories about cancer and death. It is scary stuff. Any one of us can die at any time. I would rather have truth than winning some debate. When I am dead, the truth will matter, winning debates will not.

    Christopher, I’d like to post a few of your blog’s articles from time to time on my blog, RightNerve.com. What are your requirements, or would you rather that not be done? Or would you rather approve them on an individual basis? I’ll agree to whatever. Thanks! – Greg Perry

    Just a question: if God is a liar, who can trust Him? Is He equal to thr drvil then?

    Hi Christopher, just read your blog on the book of Matthew being written before Mark. I really enjoyed it, do you have a divinity degree? Not that it makes a difference, I was just wondering if you’ve had any formal training in the field. Also, I have seen Ehrman and Shabir Ally make this evolution of the Gospels argument in the past. What evidence do they have in the scholarly works to make this claim? What are they basing it on? Literary style, et al.? I understand their refusal (well at least in Ehrman’s case) to believe that Jesus couldn’t have known about the destruction of the temple, but is there anything more tangible other than a Q source, which no one even knows exists? Also, are there any main stream scholars that take Matthew being written first seriously? If so, can you point them out to me? I’d really love to read their materials. Thanks so much for taking the time to post these articles.
