I recently finished reading Infidel, the autobiography of Ayaan Hirsi Ali. She is a former Muslim who became an atheist. In reading this book, I found that she was someone I could relate to but also someone whose life was very different from my own.
Hell is understood here as a place of ceaseless torment, going on forever. Hell couldn’t exist without a being as powerful as God to maintain it.

A Christian website has posted ten questions for every atheist, which it maintains no atheist can truly and honestly answer. These are my answers.
The Transcendental argument maintains that eternal conceptual truths require the existence of an eternal mind, which is understood to be God. I maintain that eternal truths, such as the laws of logic, are part of the fabric of reality, not conceptual truths in the sense Matt Slick intends.

It is true that the Bible was used to justify slavery. However, justification is not the same thing as explicitly calling for something.
