Interesting, considering that they do n't hesitate to thoroughly footnote elsewhere in the book.This book claims that atheism does not rely on faith- yet how can any atheist 'know 100%' that God is not live and so thus be an atheist?

The truth is that only atheistic ideologies could and did do that damage; that atheism is not meaningless- they claim that they can have lasting meaning somehow, yet nothing lasts eternally if God does not exist ... uh duh!

An atheist how-to manual, if you will.50 Great Myths offers the reader some useful tools in reasoning when confronted with criticism and attack.

In between, there are those more timid souls who prefer to be agnostic, or who claim they still want to be unwillin to enjoy the great architecture, art and music that usually are considered to be the property and the realm only of theists ( they seem to think that they must completely give up these things if they were ‘ really ’ atheists) thereby totally misreading what this is all about: that these artistic works are expressions made by people for the pleasure and enjoyment of all mankind — they do not simply cease to exist if you are an atheist, nor is the atheist forbidden to enjoy them; and their existence has nothing to do with proving or disproving the existence of gods.This book deserves widespread readership.

It is a sort of benchmark work, listing only 50 ( count ’ em) claims people make concerning atheism.

Again, not so much because of their writing or responses, but because the logic of theology is exasperating, to say the least.And the inclusion of the esus and Mo cartoons was brilliant.
