The Freethinker Library is a collection of books of interest to freethinkers, humanists, atheists, feminists, and political progressives. They were written between 1870 and 1915. The FT Library includes a seven volume collection on religion by Robert G. Ingersoll as well as books by Thomas Paine, Voltairine de Cleyre, M. Ricker, J. McCabe, and others. These works are highly critical of Christianity, the Bible, and sexism. "Robert G. Ingersoll Against Christianity," contains 6 critical volumes on religion by the famous Freethinker and the biography of the orator by Herman E. Kittredge. Robert G. Ingersoll's works are a scathing analysis of Christianity and the Bible. Part 1 discusses the myth of the infallible and divinely inspired Bible. Ingersoll states that Christianity is the enemy of social order and of progress and that it teaches it is better to love God than your wife or husband. Also included is Ingersoll's famous lecture, "Some Mistakes of Moses." Part 2 includes the Ingersoll-Rev.Talmage Debate: The freethinker debates the highly influential Reverend Talmage on the Old Testament. Here we find out that plants may have flourished before the sun was created due to the light from volcanic activity, starlight etc. The all-knowledgeable Lord went through all the animals looking for a helpmate for Adam before figuring out that Eve was preferable to a camel. The snake walked on its tail! Before Adam and Eve sinned, predators did not kill and eat animals. Two of all the animals, birds, insects, etc., in the world fit into Noah's Ark. We are compelled to admit that nothing could be more attractive to a woman than a snake walking erect, with a "spotted, dappled skin," unless it were a serpent with wings. Is it not humiliating to know that our ancestors believed these things? Why should we object to the Darwinian doctrine of descent after this? "Some Mistakes of Moses" -- The Fall.
