Critical Thought and Religious Liberty


"Nature! We are surrounded and embraced by her: powerless to separate ourselves from her, and powerless to penetrate beyond her. Without asking, or warning, she snatches us up into her circling dance, and whirls us on until we are tired, and drop from her arms." – J. W. Von Goethe, Nature (1869).

  • The Religious Views of Adolf Hitler:
    Was Hitler an atheist as some Christians say he was? Hitler's own words make this claim rather dubious.

This page documents some of his religious views, as he personally described them.

    Excerpts from some of the most significant court decisions regarding State/Church Separation, as well as several cases involving the recent legislative efforts to get creationism taught in public classrooms.
