This site collects essays on atheism that I have written over the years. Multiple atheists and theists have responded to the essays leading to improvements, corrections and a list of common responses And counter responses. Most learned readers accept the main points in the essays regarding the problems with supernatural references (In fact an entire branch of theology: negative theology, already held to the position 1700 years bofore I was born.). The points regarding the problems with historical claims for Jesus are also considered non controversial in learned curcles, although most christians do assert that the gospels are in fact historical evidence. Other essays are more controversial or touch on points of rhetoric and persuasion.
