Most Christians, and even some atheists, claim that Christianity, and religion in general, is valuable in that it provides necessary moral guidance. Fine - so where's the evidence ? I have been compiling statistics about morality and religion for a while, and have found that almost all studies prove the greater morality of secularity. I look around me and I see that the bravest of people, the most productive, the most intelligent, the most loving of freedom are secular. I read the Bible and see nothing but evil.
I challenge anyone to show me a verse in the Bible that is morally valid or justified.
I challenge anyone to show a moral area where secular people are proven to be inferior to Christians.
I challenge anyone to justify the extremes of moral corruption that pervade Christianity at its very core : in the doctrines of original sin and salvation, God's Sovereignty, and our need to follow God's subjective orders.
I challenge anyone to show any historical advance in social mores which is demanded by the Bible.
(and no, "love your neighbour" is not specific enough to stand-in for anything)
I challenge anyone to refute any of my entries on this blog.
What do you stand to win ? Well, I'll publish your answer on this blog, if you come anywhere close to fulfilling any of these challenges (since they cannot in fact be fulfilled, due to the total depravity of Christianity, I will be very generous).
