Col. Ingersoll takes Christian fundamentalist apologetics and demolishes them with delight and ease. As one reviewer said, "Try reading the Bible before passing judgement." I agree. As Mark Twain said, "The best cure for Christianity is to read the Bible." We need more Ingersolls and Twains and less of the loony-tune xian fundynuts.

Many "mistakes" Ingersoll cites have since been debunked by modern research into ancient times. Others are simply Ingersoll's misinterpretations, willful or otherwise, of the Bible. Robert Ingersoll was an agnostic lecturer who died in 1901. His conclusions on the Bible have not stood the test of time, to say the least. Try reading the Bible for yourself before passing judgement.
