Farrell Till (April 26, 1933 – October 3, 2012) was the editor of the formerly published The Skeptical Review and was a prominent debater against Christianity and biblical inerrancy. He published critical articles of the inerrancy subject as well as skeptical examinations of other biblical interpretations.

Till was a Church of Christ minister and missionary,[2] but left the church in 1963 and later became an atheist. In addition to having edited The Skeptical Review, Till ran the "Errancy" list, which discusses biblical contradictions and errors.[3]

He formally and informally debated with numerous Christian thinkers and evangelists, including philosophical apologist Norman Geisler and Young Earth creationism advocate Kent Hovind.

Till held a B.A. English and M.A. English from Harding University. He was a member of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, the National Center for Science Education, and the Council for Secular Humanism.
