What struck me most was the similarities, people from all over the world found joy and meaning in many of the same hings: family, classmates, nature, learning, good work, helping others.

The upernatural is beyond nature and thus we have no meanin for investigating it.

C. Grayling to celebrities such as Penn& Teller, Julia Sweeney, Shelley Segal, and Charles Strouse, writers like Janet Asimov, Robert Owe, and Steven Pinker to ordinary folks with exciting lives to share.As a former Christian who lost my faith due to a careful reading of the Bible while at Rock Bible College, I never felt any God-shaped hole where my life 's meaning and joy used to be.

If you 're like me, and never felt the loss of meaning and joy as your faith faded, or were never lived life in the community of believer, you will still appreciate the beauty of this memoir.
