About

This is a Blog devoted to discussing issues surrounding modern atheism. It is an attempt to be open minded and reach conclusions based on evidence-based reasoning. Both atheist and theistic arguments will be presented and critiqued.

This Blog will focus particularly on the ‘new atheism’, the writings and thinking of people such as Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris and Daniel Dennett (the four horsemen).

I’d love interaction and discussion as we explore many interesting and important issues.

The forum is run by Robert Martin, currently based in Melbourne, Australia.Rob Martin

Robert is presently a follower of Jesus but has seriously entertained atheism at two points in his life. He presently believes that there is reasonable evidence for his beliefs, particularly evidence for the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. With this said, he is willing to change his mind if reasonable reasons were provided.

Robert works for an organisation called The City Bible Forum in Melbourne. This organisation, like this Blog, seeks to ask the bigger questions. He has also contributed to a book called, ‘Disbelieving Disbelief’ which critiques the works of the New Atheists.

    Dear respected Sir/Madame,
    I never thought I would write something to you. This message to you is actually a humble request from my side, i am an atheist though I don’t usually like to use the term as I just think the way I think and it shouldn’t put a label have any affect on my life or on me but apparently it does. I am writing to you from Singapore, where I am stuck, I cannot return back home to India at the moment. I have faced some brutal behavior the last time i returned to India from Canada. I was an engineering student in Vancouver, though i was planning to change into theoretical physics and cosmology. It was there when I started to feel this free environment and gradually began to share my views with my family as i was approaching my 20’s. But it didn’t had a good result, after sometime i was sent back to India in order to be a life lesson and without even finishing my degree. Once back it was made clear to me that i am not returning back. I showed an interest to do a journalism diploma from a university but immediately shut down so I started to work. work wasn’t good either I faced persecution of a kind as one of my bosses was related to the Bajrang Dal (you can YouTube or Google them) and quickly I found a way, I shut my mouth and mind, pretended to be somebody i wasn’t, it wasn’t Canada anymore and no freedom of speech, though people outside my family dint buy it, I flew to Singapore on a Training permit. Though it is short lived i have to return soon.
    I am tired of returning and i miss studying again, my life and career are in danger because of my state of just being. i am not going into too many details here.
    I need some advice, some way that i can start my life again and breathe fresh air. I am being pushed inside and further and its hard to keep doing that.
    Please if you could help me in telling a way out.
    A short message would be great.
    Thank you
    Amanpreet Sing

  3. Robert, I am hoping you could share with me the evidence you have for the resurrection

  4. The forum’s name is disingenuous. “A Christian apologist’s take on atheism” would be closer to the mark.

    • Sort of. The forum engages modern atheism – in that sense it’s an atheist forum. Thanks for command sorry if you feel it’s disingenuous
