it was amazing
bookshelves: philosophy, 2000s

This is a very enjoyable book that makes many arguments and pulls no punches. It systematically discusses most of the arguments for a God's existence, poses arguments against a God's existence, analyzes the reasons monotheistic religions have "evolved" among humans, and...I think this was the book's last argument... explains why it is unethical to thrust religious beliefs on children. This book would easily anger most Christians, as it, among other things, shows that not only should the Bible NOT be used to develop a system of ethics, the Bible ISN'T in fact used, even by Christians, to develop an ethical way of living.

In summary: if you aren't angered by the title itself, you'd probably enjoy it.
