However one brave sister has agreed to allow us to publish and we hope that readers will learn much from this series of letters that will be published here from time to time.
We are closely involved with many Christadelphians who are either losing or have lost their faith. Almost all of this discussion is confidential and never makes it onto the pages of this website.

We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology - Carl Sagan
125 million years old
Instead most Christadelphians learn about Evolution by reading anti-Evolution booklets and watching anti-Evolution videos that are either decades out of date or are based on writings that are obsolete by a factor of many decades.
As a consequence they know almost nothing about one of the greatest scientific discoveries in human history and they don't understand that Evolution actually happened. Evolution is true and it exposes the writers of Genesis as mistaken. God did NOT create living species; they evolved from a common ancestor billions of years ago.
It has been said that there is more evidence to prove that Evolution happened than there is for any other established fact of human knowledge. We have the evidence of our own eyes in our own times.

|Choose one or the other|
- but you can't have both!
"Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see." (New Living Translation 2007)
In Ephesians 2:8 Paul teaches that it is this kind of faith that causes God's grace to save certain people.
"By grace are ye saved, through faith."
Paul did NOT say:
"By grace are ye saved through proof."
|The Conservatory Restaurant at Crown Casino Melbourne|
We are arranging a lunch and social afternoon for Ex-Christadelphians at the Conservatory Restaurant at the Crown Entertainment Complex in the middle of Melbourne Australia. Cost $48.00 with everything included except drinks. Tea and Coffee is included.
It will be a weekday lunch. Or we can move it to a Saturday, with an increase in cost to $61.00. Parking at the complex is cheap and often free if you buy a lunch.
If you can't afford the cost, Ex-Christadelphians funds will confidentially subsidise it for you.
Sisters DON'T have to wear hats!!

|This is not how Australian|
education is supposed to be
Professor Richard Dawkins has said that he considers Faith Schools to be child abuse.
Here at Ex-Christadelphians we agree and we believe that for the well being of the students they should be opposed.
We do not object to Church owned schools. My own three children attend a great Uniting Church owned school, Haileybury College. There they receive a well balanced education free from religious proselyting.
We do object to extreme Faith Schools like Heritage Colleges, where preaching to the children is a declared intention of the school. That is quite different to religious education. We think that public money should NOT be spent converting children to a religious sect.

Christadelphian Atheism is Christadelphian reform taken to its logical conclusion.
We Christadelphian Atheists favour The Scientific Method of thinking and discovery and we favour mainstream scientific theories such as the Big Bang, the inflation of our Universe and Evolution. But the Big Bang had to come from somewhere and because the sum total of all the mass and energy in our Universe totals zero, we think that the Universe came from nothing.
But "nothing" in that sense does not mean the "nothing" of the generally accepted English usage of the word. Obviously there would have to be "something" in that "nothing" and scientists have demonstrated that "nothing" is actually a seething mass of energy so great that its sum total cannot be imagined or even estimated.
