Welcome! It's been wisely stated that the way one answers the question, "Is there a God?" defines a life.
Here at Truthbomb Apologetics we strive to offer apologetics resources to encourage and challenge both believer and unbeliever.
Critical thinking is strongly encouraged, reason is a must, and all are welcomed!

Atheist Joel Marks on God and Morality
"The long and the short of it is that I became convinced that atheism implies amorality; and since I am an atheist, I must therefore embrace amorality. I call the premise of this argument 'hard atheism.' ... A 'soft atheist' would hold that one could be an atheist and still believe in morality. And indeed, the whole crop of 'New Atheists' are softies of this kind. So was I, until I experienced my shocking epiphany that the religious fundamentalists are correct: without God, there is no morality. But they are incorrect, I still believe, about there being a God. Hence, I believe, there is no morality."
