Here are links to great informational sites by people a whole lot smarter than us.

Vital information

The Secular Web

Christian apologists got you tripped up with their well-crafted arguments? Can't tell an Ontological argument for the existence of God from a Transcendental one? Then get all your answers here. An absolutely amazing, searchable compendium of essays and debates concerning religion and free thought, with rebuttals from both sides. A great resource to help clear up the confusion.

Do creation vs. evolution debates go over your head? Ours too. That's why we leave it to the experts at talkorigins.org.

Ebon Musings
Don't let the funny name throw you off, this is a treasure trove of information from a very smart and thoughtful guy, and a great writer (we hate him). Extremely well researched and documented, yet eminently readable. We recommend starting with his excellent article on morality.

Dr. Zach's Evolution 101 podcast
The definitive primer on evolution, by a real microbiologist working in the field. Clearly defines evolution, and the molecular-biological evidence for it. Perfect for the lay person, and anyone wanting to know what evolution is and is not.

Letters from Leavers
From what started as a school research project at Fuller Theological Seminary, Tim and Jason have created a provocative site that contains letters written by people who have left their church, or otherwise have challenges with their faith.

Directory Religion
An up and coming directory of religion websites.

Debate forums

A Christian and an Atheist forum
Emery's forum, that he hosts with his Christian buddy Norton. It complements their podcast, but is open to all who is interested in dialogue between Christians and atheists.

Christianboard.com's apologetics section

Here you will find Emery fighting the good fight with a mostly Christian crowd, but they welcome debate. Not as big as some of the others, more homey but well put together, and a good place to test your views. Stop on by, look for Emery's posts and give him some moral support (or tell him in public why he's all washed up).
-Note: hackers got to this site (when God wasn't watching), and I think they lost all their old messages, including the ones I wrote. Drat. Or maybe that's a good thing.

Theology Online
THE 900 pound gorilla of the Christian vs. non-Christian debate message boards. Also a chance for Christians to debate eachother. Highly recommended, but be prepared to stay a while.

Another big site to debate Christians and skeptics. Very nicely done, but can take a while to load, especially on Emery's 1996 Power Computing Mac.

Fun yet provocative stuff

Landover Baptist Church
See what these ex-Liberty Baptist College hoodlums are up to.

Church signs
A hilarious collection of actual church signs, plus a church sign generator, to make your own. The source of all the funny church signs you see on our site.
