Modern Science and Philosophy Destroy Christian Theology
Is it possible to disprove the existence of God? Seems like most Christians and atheists agree, and say "no." Contrariwise, Dr. Stenger wrote a book called "God: The Failed Hypothesis. How Science Shows That God Does Not Exist." In that same theme comes this booklet, in which Bernie explains why he left Christianity for scientific and philosophical reasons. Bernie also shares ways that we can now, using modern knowledge (science and philosophy), falsify the existence of God (including every version of a Christian God; such as Catholic, Mormon, Pentecostal, etc. versions). If your god is not superfluous, then he/she/they/it can be falsified with modern knowledge (science and/or philosophy). Just take any unique specific claims for that god and think about how it comports (or not!) with science and reason. And if your god is superfluous, then it isn't much of a God. That sort of God is indistinguishable from a God that doesn't exist.

About Bernie Dehler
Bernie Dehler is a former evangelical Christian preacher. After being an evangelical Christian for 25 years, he became an atheist. His reasons are primarily scientific and philosophical. As a Christian, he decided to study more science in order to debate atheists, and in so doing, came to see that the naturalistic worldview made much better sense of the world than did his religious worldview. Bernie has been involved in many debates in the local Portland Oregon area; first as a Christian, then as an atheist. Many of his debates can be freely viewed at this YouTube channel: http: //www.youtube.com/user/SecHummer . Bernie received a BSEET degree from Oregon Institute of Technology in 1984, and has been working in the computer industry ever since. In 2007 he also earned a Masters in Ministry degree from Luther Rice Seminary in Georgia. He left the faith and became an atheist in 2009. Bernie is a humanist minister certified by "The Humanist Society." He teaches free courses in his local community, and works as a Humanist volunteer in a prison. He is also a leader in the atheist diversity group at the large multinational computer company where he works.
