Scholarly site, excellent
The history of Western civilization shows us that most social and moral progress has been brought about by persons free from religion. In modern times the first to speak out for prison reform, for humane treatment of the mentally ill, for abolition of capital punishment, for women’s right to vote, for death with dignity for the terminally ill, and for the right to choose contraception, sterilization and abortion have been freethinkers, just as they were the first to call for an end to slavery. The Foundation works as an umbrella for those who are free from religion and are committed to the cherished principle of separation of state and church.
A Naturalistic Site
The Secular Web is owned by a nonprofit educational organization dedicated to defending and promoting naturalistic worldview on the Internet. Naturalism is the “hypothesis that the natural world is a closed system” in the sense that “nothing that is not a part of the natural world affects it.” As such, “naturalism implies that there are no supernatural entities,” such as gods, angels, demons, ghosts, or other spirits, “or at least none that actually exercises its power to affect the natural world.” And without miraculous interventions into nature from a spiritual realm, neither prayer nor magic are more effective than a placebo.

All the nasty things in both Testaments.
by John Loftus, MTh
I had just earned a Master of Theology degree in the Philosophy of Religion under (William Lane) Craig, which was my third master’s degree. I had earned the other two under (James D.) Strauss. I had just been accepted at Marquette University the next school year for a PhD degree in Theology. I had hopes I would return to finish my PhD, but something happened on the way to paradise. The rest is history, as they say.
