But I think they’d say that doesn’t count since they can still detect atoms with scientific instruments, something they can’t do with God.  They won’t believe in anything they can’t measure scientifically.”

Is Plan B an Abortifacient?

I’ve been hearing the charge that there’s no reason to think the contraceptives Hobby Lobby refused to subsidize (Plan B, Ella, and two types of IUDs) are actually abortifacients, so I was happy to see that Josh Brahm of the Equal Rights Institute had collected a series of articles by Dr. Rich Poupard of the Life Training Institute, along with an interview with Dr.

Challenge: A Universe Can't Be Made from Nothingness by a Non-Thing

How Christianity Created Science (and Why Atheism Wouldn’t Have)

God, Evolution, and Morality Part 1

  The billboards read:  “No God?  No Problem.  Be Good for Goodness’ Sake,” and “Are You Good without God?  Millions Are.”  The point was clear:  Morality in no way depends on belief in God.  And why should it? Atheists can be good, too.  New atheist Christopher Hitchens regularly challenged his religious opponents to suggest a single act of goodness they could perform that he, the atheist, could not accomplish with equal success.
