Yesterday I came across “Why I Am Not a Christian” written in 1927 by the British philosopher Bertrand Russell (can be found at http://www.positiveatheism.org/hist/russell0.htm). Some of you probably know this text well but for me it was my first exposure to it. What surprised me the most is how relevant his arguments still are today. For anyone who hasn’t read it yet, I highly recommend it. It is very readable and short, but it covers the essential elements of the reasons why we are atheists, and what it says about Christianity is just as true about any other religion, more or less.
