It's not often one finds an opinionated camel with humor, biting wit, cutting sarcasm, unabashed irreverence, outright blasphemy, and on-point arguments for rational thought and against religious delusion. An advocate of reason and common sense, the author debunks traditional believer apologetics and challenges theist platitudes, while providing food for thought and debate ...more

Finally, all Atheists, Freethinkers and generally cool minded people, have a worthy artillery of replies for every bit of religious diarrhea that gets thrown our way. The author, aka Camelus Dromedaries and yes, I did use Wikipedia, does not tip-toe with his fundie stories and calling a spade a spade.

I commend him for using highly complex and complementary definitions for the simple minded Christian folk such as idiots, imbeciles, morons and delusional psychopaths and I thank him for adding to m

while this book did have interesting statistics in it about the connections between education and IQ related to religion, I found the author's tone very offputting. He really seems to hate Christians. Most disgusting of all was his statement that he hoped Rick Warren would soon die – that's just hateful. He really seems to think that Christians are all idiots, and he really spews a lot of hate. Also, I think it's pretty disgusting that he spews his hate from behind a pseudonym. He doesn't give h ...more

A collection of blog posts on atheism. Mostly rants though. Although it makes for quick reading, I don't really quite like a book that is unstructured. It would have been better if the blog posts were grouped by themes. As it is, they seem to be organised chronologically.

There are better books on atheism for the casual reader. A good book needs to thread all the chapters in the book to present a strong and irrefutable case for atheism. The Atheist Camel Chronicles unfortunately doesn't do that,

I did not like this book. I am a passionate atheist and I love to read this kind of literature. I couldn't get into this one, though. Grammatical errors run wild, as though the book was poorly edited, and it gives the book the feel of one written by a thirteen year old. The arguments are not well constructed (particularly in their tone) in a continuing written-by-a-teenager theme. If you are looking for atheist literature, I would suggest reading Sam Harris' "The End of Faith", Dan Barker's "Los ...more

Recommends it for: the open minded
Really enjoyed this series of essays on being atheist. He expressed many, if not all the same ideas I've had. The writing style was entertaining. However, his use of a pseudomym caused me to lose respect for him. He claims to be proud of his beliefs and and he writes and self publishes a book promoting them and then doesn't have the courage to name himself. (I do recognize that religious nuts all over the world will likely harrass him, but....)

I'd still recommend it.

A compendium of answers to almost all the important arguments against theism. By now many people know Dromedary Hump, the reported author of this classic is philosphy Professor Dan Finke. He may be an academic, but he is witty and fun to read.

This was OK - it was a little amateur, and angry. Does not compare to books treating similar topics by Daniel Dennett, Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris...

Not for the "tone" sensitive and certainly would not be appreciated by most theists. For everyone else, an amusing blog book containing 105 short discussions full of wit and insight.
