Was Reincarnation Originally in the Bible?

During college I took an Intercultural Communication course. The class was fairly unremarkable, but the text book gave no shortage of interesting material.

Did Math Prove God Does Not Exist?

One night, after my college Algebra class finished, I needed to ask my professor a question about the homework. But I also had a different question.

Was the Bible Written by Constantine in the 4th Century?

Quick Challenge Answer: You Are Only A Christian Because You Were Born In America

Last week’s quick challenge question was: “You were born in America, so of course you are a Christian. If you had been born in India, you would have been a Hindu or Muslim. You’re only a Christian because of where you were born”. This question commits what is known as a genetic fallacy.  It attempts Continue Reading
