My thoughts on Brian Flemming’s The God Who Wasn’t There

I recently watched Brian Flemming’s The God Who Wasn’t There DVD and I must confess that I was a little disappointed.

If there is a benevolent God reviewing your life, you will be judged on your actions and not just on your ability to blindly believe in creeds- when there is a significant lack of evidence on how to define God or if he/she even exists.
