I was raised a Roman Catholic, but I eventually found it difficult to reconcile the Word with many Catholic
teachings. Even a casual reading will make you question church dogmas such as the worship of the Virgin Mary, the infallibility of the Papacy, and bizarre legends like the "Veronica" in the stations of the cross. I have also investigated Islam's claim to be a religion of peace, and whether Mohammed really received his revelation from YHWH, the God of Israel. In addition, I intend to address the detractors of Scripture, who claim that the Bible is not reliable, or that Yeshua (Jesus) of Nazareth did not even exist, or was formed of legend.

Philosophy: The Epicurean Riddle
Atheists often cite the Epicurean Riddle when defending their position. See my rebuttal here.
Since I am as great a procrastinator as ever, my research is only in its earliest stages. However, I would like to point
you to far greater scholars who have done much of the work already. If you have doubts or fears, or even if you are a staunch
atheist, I encourage you to read what these people have to say. It's sure to give you something to think about, at least.
