Currid and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. did moses borrow ideas from his cultural neighbors when he wrote the pentateuch? scholars disagree on the relationship between portions of the old testament and similar ancient near eastern accounts. following in the footsteps of higher critics, some evangelical scholars now argue that moses drew significantly from the worldview of his pagan contemporaries. respected old testament scholar john currid, however, pushes back against this trend by highlighting the highly polemical nature of moses’ writings. from the genesis creation account to the story of israel’s exodus from egypt, currid shows how the biblical author’s continually emphasized the futility of paganism in contrast with the unparalleled worldview of the hebrews. currid’s penetrating analysis and thoughtful argumentation make this a ground-breaking resource for anyone interested in this ongoing discussion.

Description : Read Now Twelve Against The Gods by William Bolitho and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. "it's really quite good." - elon musk twelve against the gods was an instant bestseller when it first published in 1929. in his trademark journalist style, author william bolitho details the lives of twelve great adventurers—alexander the great, casanova, christopher columbus, mahomet, lola montez, cagliostro (and seraphina), charles xii of sweden, napoleon i, lucius sergius catiline, napoleon iii, isadora duncan, and woodrow wilson. bolitho shines light on both the struggles and successes that made these figures so iconic, and demonstrates how they all battled convention and conformity to achieve enduring fame and notoriety. “we are born adventurers,” bolitho writes, “and the love of adventures never leaves us till we are very old; old, timid men, in whose interest it is that adventure should quite die out. this is why all the poets are on one side, and all the laws on the other; for laws are made by, and usually for, old men." though his essays are nearly one hundred years old, they encompass the timeless values of perseverance, bravery, and strength of spirit that have proven to resonate with the pioneers and thought leaders of today.

Description : Read Now Against The Gods? by Stefan Molyneux and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. between the poles of strong atheism and strict theism lies agnosticism, the argument that gods are very unlikely, but cannot logically be ruled out as utterly impossible. agnosticism is considered a cautious, tentative and scientific approach to the question of the existence of gods - stefan molyneux's seminal book "against the gods?" makes a powerful case against agnosticism and for the positive acceptance of the nonexistence of supernatural beings.it is not rational to even entertain the possibility of the existence of irrational entities. we do not accept agnosticism about unicorns, fairies, square circles, pixies or the proposition that two and two make five - why do we create a special exception in the realm of deities? surely it is because the social cost of rejecting gods is far higher than the social cost of rejecting goblins."against the gods?" provides essential ammunition to those fighting the virus of faith, and clears the mental fog of the irrational middle ground between atheism and theism.

Johnson, John Mark Reynolds and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. the father of the intelligent design movement, phillip johnson, thinks the new atheists are right! how? they've put serious discussion about god back on the public agenda. despite their conclusions, folks like richard dawkins, sam harris and daniel dennett are asking the right questions. they're making belief in any religion an issue again, especially in the university context where, for decades, questions about faith and reason have been taken off the table for serious discussion. open debate is exactly what we need on the topics of god, evolution and creation. together johnson and john mark reynolds help us see the unique opportunity these vociferous and even evangelistic atheists are creating in their attempt to convert us to their unbelief. the authors show that we need not fear or react against these challenges. rather they point to better ways to engage the opinions of this new, aggressive form of antireligious activity. with skill and insight they energetically take on the question of whether the evidence leads to a materialistic naturalism or points toward a creator god. be informed. be encouraged. join the discussion.
