10 reasons why christianity is wrong

The 10 Reasons Why Christianity is Wrong
by Trevor Burrus · October 30th, 2006 ·

10. It is Absurd: This may seem like I am re-stating what this list sets out to show. However, this is misleading. When someone comes to us with an extravagant claim the most common reason we may discount the claim is because, to put it curtly, we find it absurd. The reason why the majority of people don’t believe in Scientology, reincarnation, Mormonism, Greek Gods, etc. is not because they have extensively researched the historicity and veracity of the claims, it is because they don’t believe such things happen in the world. In other words, common sense tells us that when someone claims the absurd almost anything is more likely to be the case (i.e. they are lying, they are delusional, they are relying on misinformation) then for the absurdity to be real. Men do not miraculously heal the sick, raise the dead, cure the blind, and rise from the grave. The claims of Christianity are prima facie absurd. The burden of proof is on them.

Whats the difference between me and a christian?

A christian would have mailed 150 people with "proof" that Jesus exists / is the savious / is dead, but is coming back REAL soon / other things i cant think of right now...

This is Trevor Burrus, the original author of this article.

I appreciate your patronage of our site and your enjoyment of my essay. However, as a friendly reminder of the ethics of the blogosphere, I would remind you that the re-posting of my entire essay on your site is uncouth. If you like something on another site, the proper action is to link to that post on your blog; with excerpts if desired. Thus, in order to read the article, the reader must go to the other site. Thus, the deserving site - the one to which the content is original - gets the bolstered page hits and popularity.

This rule is designed to help all involved in the blogosphere. If you write something that is linked then your traffic will increase accordingly.

Thank you for your understanding and, again, thanks for your appreciation of my thoughts and the patronage of our site.

Yo Trevor,

Thanks for the comments.

As you can see from the rest of my blog, I usually link back to the original article.

These last 10 posts were of stuff that I had lying around in my "To Post" folder for a while.

Altered accordingly =)
