Atheists continue to pursue the logical fallacy of turning away from God based on religious criticisms. Atheism is not the only alternative. One can argue for it, but it is not the only conclusion that can be derived.
Distortion of the holy books is the product of man. It is erroneous to blame God for the actions of man with Free Will. Religion and the Church is a construct of man.
Yet the question of God still lingers in us. It is available to us all without religion or the church.
