Warriors Against Ignorance: Updated Version

Because the original topic hasn't been updated in three years, I decided to re-make the whole thread, add some new links and polish or throw out the old ones. As an homage to the original thread:

I recommend Nizkor, "The Central Database of Shoah Victims' Names" at Yad Vashem and the holocaustcontroversies blog for dealing with Holocaust deniers.

Also didn't i mention something about Time team in the old version of this thread? :lol:

Post Re: Warriors Against Ignorance: Updated Version

Just a suggestion for anyone who posts here. Don't use red on this background. Those of us who are color challenged can't see it very well. I have to highlight any red text so I can read it. I'm sure there are others out there who suffer from color blindness roaming around the forums. I wouldn't bother going back and changing anything but it's something to consider for future posts.

I found a large number of college courses on youtube from yale. Considering the number of people who come here looking for religious info you might link to their courses on the Bible. There's one for the new and old testaments.

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... F77FA5FFF8

And one on Death that is interesting.

Thanks for the input. I may (or may not) change the colours when I get the time and actually update the damn thing, but I'm stuck in work limbo at the moment.
