On the Nature of Morality (1998)

Dr. Berggren argues against the existence of objective moral values. Along the way, he states an interesting "Moral Knowledge Argument for Atheism."

A Note on the Concept of Belief (1998)

Dr. Berggren argues that beliefs are not the result of the intentional act of choosing, therefore, it is immoral to punish someone for being in the state of unbelief.

Does the Free-Will Defense Constitute a Sound Theodicy? (1997)

"Possibly the strongest argument against the existence of the Christian god is contained in the theodicy problem, i.e., the problem of defending God in the presence of evil." One of the most popular theistic responses to the argument from evil is the Free Will Defense. In this essay, Dr. Berggren argues that the free will defense is a failure and therefore, in the light of the argument from evil, theism should be rejected.

The Errancy of Fundamentalism Disproves the God of the Bible (1996)

Dr. Berggren argues that, since the revealed Word of God contains errors and ambiguities uncharacteristic of an infallible God, then we ought to conclude that such a being does not exist.


Biblical Contradictions

Matthew 27 and Acts 1 (Off Site)

There are Christians who believe that the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, infallible Word of God. This note shows that they are wrong in this belief, since there is a contradiction between a passage in 27th chapter of Matthew and the 1st chapter of Acts. If the Bible were without error, there could be no contradiction at all.

1 John 1:8,10 and 1 John 3:9 (Off Site)

This brief note documents a second contradiction in the New Testament, thus undermining the view of some Christians, that the Bible is perfectly without error. We begin by taking a closer look at the two passages.
