9 min TED video about the Koran. It was interesting what she said about the 72 virgins part and the "kill unbelievers" part.

Antonio Damasio interview in which he answers the question "Is it possible to locate the spiritual in the human organism?" And answers: "the spiritual is the ultimate state of well being":

Two German lawyers have filed charges against Pope Benedict at the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity.

Kind of smacks of publicity stunt but hey, might be fun to watch.

I posted a link to this book in another thread, but realized it might be appropriate to post here as well. It's a pdf of George H. Smith's classic book on atheism:

Atheism: The Case Against God

Re: ****Official RGT Article Thread****

Just out from the Pew Forum:

Global Survey of Evangelical Protestant Leaders (pdf: link)

Cliffs: ~2k evangelical leaders from around the world surveyed...lots of statistics, mostly comparisons between Evangelical Christianity in the "Global North" (Europe, North America, Japan, Australia and New Zealand) and the "Global South" (sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East and North Africa, Latin America and most of Asia). Seems evangelicalism is booming in the South, busting in the North.

For the Christian Apologists on the board. It's quite long...still working on reading it myself but just to see an early church father's thinking here is:

So the Irish Times is running a weekly series by a James P. Mackey, Professor of Theology at Edinburgh.

Part two was published yesterday. Read it and rage.

The Vatican has recalled its envoy to Ireland after the Irish premier criticised "the dysfunction, disconnection, elitism – and the narcissism – that dominate the culture of the Vatican".

Re: ****Official RGT Article Thread****

two articles worth reading:

1. article in DerSpiegel (german news-magazine) about the growing number of atheists/secular people

http://www.spiegel.de/international/...777281,00.html

This sentence really surprised me:

Quote:
Churches in the US are losing up to 1 million members every year.
Does anybody have another source for that?

2. article from The NewYorker - Secularism and its discontents.
