Welcome to Iron Chariots! This is a counter-apologetics wiki that is meant to provide a thorough resource for responding to theistic arguments.

The name of the site was inspired by this passage (see our article about it) from the Christian Bible:

And the LORD was with Judah; and he drave out the inhabitants of the mountain; but could not drive out the inhabitants of the valley, because they had chariots of iron.
Judges 1:19 Bible-icon.png

For Christian apologists, the Bible is the word of God and serves as the foundation for most of their arguments. While believers hold differing opinions on proper exegetic practices, most believers assert that the Bible is generally accurate and reliable in theme and history.

Examining that passage from Judges, we see a clear message: the god described in those passages was powerful, but not powerful enough to defeat an army with Iron Chariots. If the apologists are to be believed, then we have a solid example of something more powerful than their god.

The editors and contributors at this wiki are convinced that logic, reason, skepticism, critical thought, and scientific investigation are the modern equivalent of Iron Chariots. No god hypotheses or supernatural claims have been able to withstand even casual examination. Anyone who believes they can prove supernatural claims is welcome to visit the JREF web site and apply for the million dollar challenge. James Randi's organization offers this prize to anyone "who can show, under proper observing conditions, evidence of any paranormal, supernatural, or occult power or event."

Point of view

This is an atheist web site. Editing is for members only, members are screened, and if you're not interested in helping to promote the Evil Atheist Conspiracy™ then this wiki is not for you. New users should take a look at our editing guidelines and our version of "neutral point of view" for more help in creating and editing articles.

Other than that, be welcome and feel free to browse! And if you do wish to get in an argument, please drop by our message board. We hope you'll find plenty of people to argue with over there.
