Five Reasons Why Interpreting Genesis 1 Literally is Impossible

I've pointed out that YEC cannot be honestly reconciled with both the scientific and the Biblical data as a literal reading of both creation narratives contradict each other in the length and duration of creation, the sequence of creation events in Gen 1 does not harmonise with what we actually know from science, and Genesis 1 when taken literally teaches the existence of a solid firmament. I've made these points repeatedly, but for the benefit of those needing a summary of why a literal reading is untenable, I've gathered together five of the main points.

'Reflections on a Young Earth Creationist’ Approach to Scientific Apologetics'

Professor Joel Duff
By John Bedson

My thanks to Christadelphian Ken Gilmore for highlighting (on his Facebook page) the excellent article critiquing Young Earth Creationism by professor and theist Joel Duff 'Reflections on a Young Earth Creationist’ Approach to Scientific Apologetics'

The psychology of belief

This video series on the psychology of belief is fantastic. Each video in the series is full of information on why people believe things without good evidence, and the videos are backed by scientific studies.


Creating God in your own image

From scienceblogs.com

For many religious people, the popular question “What would Jesus do?” is essentially the same as “What would I do?” That’s the message from an intriguing and controversial new study by Nicholas Epley from the University of Chicago. Through a combination of surveys, psychological manipulation and brain-scanning, he has found that when religious Americans try to infer the will of God, they mainly draw on their own personal beliefs.

Winning the lottery of life

By Steve Pryde



In a world where the total population is above 7 billion people (that's a 7 followed by nine zeros), what are the odds of being a Christadelphian?

Do you believe that only Christadelphians (or those with similar beliefs) will be saved?

Do you believe that God will justly and fairly reward the faithful in the future?
Are your parents Christadelphians?

The vast majority of Christadelphians are simply born into the religion. They adopt the beliefs of their parents, more or less, and continue on in the same religion.

What did you personally do to become a Christadelphian? Anything at all?
On what basis can God reward you for being a Christadelphian?

I have concluded reform of Christadelphians is not possible. As you say, you have more important things to do with your life. Me too.

Setting the next generation up for failure - the Hall Green Young People's Creation Day 2015

In James 3:1, the writer reminded his audience that those who who teach will be judged with greater strictness, something that makes sense when one considers the responsibility that a teacher has to ensure what she or he has to say is accurate. This becomes even more important when one teaches young people, for obvious reasons. It is bad enough seeing fundamentalism and science denialism being served up in The Christadelphian, but when a younger generation is fed science denialism, as was the case when the Hall Green ecclesia in Birmingham presented their Young People's Creation Day recently, it is hard not to get deeply concerned at the potential for harm that exists when pseudoscience is inextricably linked with our faith.

Waking up from the Christadelphian dream

By John Bedson
"Dreams feel real when we're in them. It's only when we wake up that we realise that something was actually strange"  
- Leonardo DiCaprio: 'Inception' movie 
Deconverting from Christadelphianism is like awakening from a dream. In dreams we have the illusion that we are living in reality. But it is a make-believe world in which strange things can happen.

10 reasons why Christadelphians cannot know The Truth - (1) Indoctrination

Who are you following?
By John Bedson

Most Christadelphians cannot be objective in their search for truth because they belong to a religion in which almost every member was born and bred into the religion. Christadelphian offspring almost invariably follow the family religion. Likewise Catholics beget Catholic children, Jews beget Jews, Muslims beget Muslims, Hindus beget Hindus and every other faith based religion gives rise to children of their own faith who only rarely change their childhood beliefs.

'Fact vs. Faith' - New book by Jerry Coyne

In his provocative new book, evolutionary biologist Jerry A. Coyne lays out in clear, dispassionate detail why the toolkit of science, based on reason and empirical study, is reliable, while that of religion — including faith, dogma, and revelation — leads to incorrect, untestable, or conflicting conclusions.
