Appendices (Advocatus Atheist Enhanced)

Blogger now offers customizable PAGE tabs so you can link static pages at the top of your blog (just like Word Press ).

Additionally I have included a short list of Bible contradictions and discrepancies, as well as an about page and contact information . Please feel free to click on these informative pages at the top of the Advocatus Atheist blog for a more in-depth view of things. I hope this helps clear up matters for people who may not be so historically inclined. Have a good one! -- Advocatus Atheist
