Tips that Atheists can use for Understanding the Bible

When I was a high school religion teacher I ran into a bit of trouble because, for the final exam, I expected the students to be able to recall facts from the Bible that we had covered that semester.  Yes, I know.  If it had been chemistry class, recalling chemistry facts covered in the semester would have been an obvious thing to have on the exam.  I think the reason there was resistance to requiring that students know biblical facts is because a lot of people- even parents of kids in Christian schools- don’t actually think the Bible is true.  … continue reading...

From my readings in the blogosphere, it looks like we may be in for more with the Voyage of the Dawn Treader.  This is unfortunate, as this is one … continue reading...

Disney Drops Narnia Movie, Dawn Treader Voyage Cancelled

I read today on Worldnetdaily that Disney is not going to produce the next in line in the Narnia series, the Dawn Treader.  Article:  http://www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=85538
