Age of reason

One of the best in depth looks at contradictions in the Old and New Testament from deist Thomas Paine.

Ahead of his time. Ahead of ours.

Although he was a product of his era (the gaps for a "god of the gaps" were still huge), Paine was far ahead of his time. Had this book not been banned or had been easier to access at his time, we might not have to deal with religious fundamentalists in ours.

His critique of Christianity is damning to anyone not willfully ignorant and obstinate.

If you're a Christian that can't understand why anyone thinks the Bible is absurd, you simply need to acquaint yourself with Thomas Paine.
