The chart showing “the course of time from eternity to eternity” is said to have had its beginning in a very natural and practical way when its author had a series of on prophecy at a Bible conference. A.E. Booth was stopped on his way to a meeting, and asked to explain the sequence of some events he had mentioned. Taking a pencil, he sketched roughly on the side of a barn they were passing at the moment the seven days of Creation and the “dispensations” they illustrate.
Mr. Booth later drew the chart in detail, and Loizeaux Brothers published it in 1896. After three printings, a revised and more detailed chart in full colour took its place. This edition has been continuously in print ever since, its thirty-eight printings bringing the 1984 total to nearly half a million copies of the chart plus 134,000 of this Key. In addition, some hundreds of lecture-size charts have also been produced, probably the most popular prophetic chart in constant use around the world. Source: Gospel Folio Press
Dispensationalism is a religious interpretive system for the Bible. It considers Biblical history as divided deliberately by God into defined periods or ages to each of which God has allotted distinctive administrative principles.

We keep on being told that religion, whatever its imperfections, at least instills morality. On every side, there is conclusive evidence that the contrary is the case and that faith causes people to be more mean, more selfish, and perhaps above all, more stupid.

I recently posed this question to my awesome heathen tweeps… what book do you consider a must read for people new to #atheism? — Atheist Girl (@iamatheistgirl) February 27, 2016 The following is a list of the most popular books..
“Billions of people claim to “know” God. How could they all be wrong? Simple. Just listen to them. If ten people claim to know your friend Jimmy, yet they all describe Jimmy in different, incompatible ways, then either they don’t know Jimmy, or Jimmy has been doing some lying.”
