“We are all atheists about most of the gods that humanity has ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further.”
Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion

“The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.”
Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion

“I am against religion because it teaches us to be satisfied with not understanding the world.”
Richard Dawkins

Addendum: Since we only usually get about 11 or so votes each time, I'm going to close this poll and put up a tie-breaker poll for Unbroken and The Ancestor's Tale.

September is now officially a non-fiction month for genre so it's time to vote for our September read. Last day to vote will be Saturday, August 9. (Non-Fiction will no longer be present in our regular monthly genre polls)

There are some really great titles on this list so please do your research before placing your vote. Thanks!
