I have looked at this site also and the central problem to religion's efforts to transform itself into a fact based entity is the complete absence of corroborative evidence. The bible as a source suffers a number of fatal flaws. It is contradictory and obviously is not contemporaneous with the time of Jesus. Thus is suffers from all historical perspectives: time is a distortion.

www.godandscience.org also known as Evidence for god. Is a lengthy conglomeration of topics deemed to challenge the atheist, non christian critiques of thier faith.<br />
I fully admit to only spending about an hour at this site looking at one article after another. Biased? Damn straight, if they were going to prove the existannce of god to me, they were going to do it with real evidence and not faith.<br />
They failed.<br />
I leave it to you to pick a subject then go to the site and view their take on it. Sadly it comes down in most places to a lesson on Hebrew, Greek ,Aramaic and the like. But it never changes the story, a three headed god is a three headed god, what does it matter when your cult accepted it as fact. The firmament was not really a solid ob<x>ject in the sky that held all the water overhead, it was a mistranslation of the king james bible.<br />
