In How Old is the Earth I bring together the facts to answer this question posed by fundamentalist "Young Earthers". (We find that the answer is: about 4 1/2 billion years old.)

I was once a fundamentalist Christian. I believed that every word in the Bible was inspired by God, and that it was all true and that it was a moral guidebook for our lives.

Then I read the Bible for myself.

When I stopped listening to people telling me what the Bible said, and I started reading it for myself, I came away with a very different conclusion.

Today I am amazed that I ever was so stupid as to think that the Bible was "God's Word".

In my book The Cure For Fundamentalism: Why the Bible Cannot be the Word of God I take you on a journey through the Bible from cover to cover. There is no "taking out of context" and there is no interpretation involved. I have divorced myself from the school of Biblical interpretation which begins each sentence with "that doesn't mean what it says." I have let the Bible speak for itself, and it has condemned itself out of its own mouth. If you can read this book and remain a fundamentalist, then you'll need to seek professional help.

In the article What Would Jesus Do I have examined whether Jesus serves as a good role model, or if we need to use our own hearts and minds in deciding on what is the morally right thing to do.

Was Jesus a Liar, Lunatic, or Divine is a dialogue I conducted with a born-again webmaster.

I've also included three of my poems related to fundamentalism: Moses, The Murderer's Confession, and What to Say to the Next Messiah on Your Doorstep or TV.
