Answers In Reason

Whilst we would love for you to spend all your time on our site, we think it is important you familiarise yourself with a wide variety of material.

We will be continuously updating this section so it is work checking back periodically.

Philosophical Resources

Philosophy is more important than folks realise. Whether you’re a sceptic, an atheist, hold beliefs, are discussing morality or pretty much anything you can think of, these are all philosophical concepts. It would do folks well to learn of their origins, and take a normative, logical approach to their debate.

SEP – Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy

SEP logo

The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy organizes scholars from around the world in philosophy and related disciplines to create and maintain an up-to-date reference work.


IEP – Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy


The purpose of the IEP is to provide detailed, scholarly, peer-reviewed information on key topics and philosophers in all areas of academic philosophy. The Encyclopedia’s articles are written with the intention that most of the article can be understood by advanced undergraduates majoring in philosophy and by other scholars who are not working in the field covered by that article. The IEP articles are written by experts but not for experts in analogy to the way the Scientific American magazine is written by scientific experts but not primarily for scientific experts.


Scientific and Atheistic Resources

Whilst these resources are predominantly reading material they are not exclusive of it and you may find that there is also some videos and podcasts available.

Ask Dr. Ben

Dr Ben

If you have questions about science, technology, the future, scepticism, or just need some brain fodder, this could be the page for you.

Ben Davis earned his Ph.D. in Nuclear Physics and his M.S. in Nuclear Astrophysics from the University of Notre Dame. He then taught at the college level for several years on a number of technical subjects ranging from computer programming to mathematics to, of course, astronomy and physics. In the late nineties he took up a career in software development and also did a stint as an industrial controls engineer. He now works in the biometrics industry and homeland security. As a lifelong fan of science fiction, his main avocations now involve learning from history, but looking to the future (futurism and skepticism)
