It's interesting and ironic

It's interesting and ironic that these two men are featured in the same article and will be speaking at Augusta area churches this weekend... they certainly represent opposite sides of the theological spectrum!

I don't even see how this is
Unpublished

I don't even see how this is news. If the nation's 2 leading experts on Greek mythology were coming to Augusta State to give lectures would this be news? Maybe in a couple of hundred years, experts in Christianity will show up at colleges and give lectures. And the college kids will think "how cute of them to have believed all that".

Voltaire said Christianity

Voltaire said Christianity would die out in a generation. After Voltaire's death, his house was used to print Bibles. God has quite a sense of humor.
Critics clammor on, then die into silence. God's word just keeps going, and going, and going....
