Why I don’t believe the Bible

I used to concern myself with the destruction of Christian logic. I don’t know why it mattered to me that Christians believed what they did, because if I was an agnostic then I certainly wasn’t concerned about the eternal fate of anyone’s soul. It must have been that I was actually worried that I might be wrong and headed to Hell. But really I am not very concerned about the after life, if there is one. I have come to believe that it is a very complex, and not entirely logical, process that causes us to form certain beliefs. There is an interplay between drawing conclusions and then looking for ways to support our conclusions. I have decided that it doesn’t really matter whether the Bible is true or not, I am not willing to submit myself to it or God. Certainly if I could find a way to believe the Bible to be true and continue to live as I wish then I would do so. But just saying there isn’t enough evidence for me to believe the Bible isn’t being entirely honest. I don’t want to believe the Bible. That’s why I don’t believe the Bible. There is no less evidence in support of the Bible now than there was when I was a die-hard Christian. The only thing that has changed is me.



Find the Longitute and Latitude of any place in the USA

At Geocode.com you can type in an address and Eagle™ geocoder will look up the address and give you its lattitude and longitude. This web page allows you to test out this software so free use is limited.

Evidently lattitude and longitude is important in astrology, because Astro.com also provides a lat/long look-up service. If you are wondering what I think about psychics read this article.

2011 Edit: This was posted before Google Maps was released. Now web based mapping is common and it is much easier to find the latitude and longitude of any point on the globe. See Wikipedia’s Google Maps article.
