9781569755679: Atheist Universe: The Thinking Person's Answer to Christian Fundamentalism

IS THERE REALLY A GOD?
OR DOES GOD EXIST ONLY IN OUR HEADS?
IS THE BIBLE TRULY GOD’S WORD?
OR IS IT A JUMBLE OF FANCIFUL MYTHS?


Atheist Universe details why God is unnecessary to explain the universe’s diversity, organization and beauty. Using simple, straightforward logic, this book rebuts every argument that claims to “prove” God’s existence.

A comprehensive primer for countering today’s religious dogma, Atheist Universe addresses all the historical and scientific questions, including:

·What is atheism, and why is it so misunderstood?
·If God is a myth, then how did the universe appear?
·Without God, is there an objective “right” and “wrong”?
·What is the meaning of life without God?
·Is there evidence of Jesus’ miracles and resurrection?
·Can atheists explain “near death” experiences and medical miracles?
·Can science and the Bible realistically be reconciled?
·What is the behind-the-scenes relationship between politics and religion?

From the Publisher:

Is there really a god?

From the Author:

I’m pleased and excited that your search on Amazon.com has beamed you to this page, showcasing my new book, Atheist Universe. I want to thank you personally for your interest in this title. Many years of painstaking work, research, and thought were devoted to this project. I am delighted with the finished volume.

Compared to most authors, I write slowly. I could never crank out five or six books a year as Isaac Asimov did so brilliantly throughout his incredible life and career. I like to believe, however, that my unhurried pace permits fine attention to detail and to precise use of language. One of my favorite quotations is that of Thomas Jefferson, who, in a letter to John Adams, wrote "I apologize to you for the lengthiness of this letter; but I had no time for shortening it." Jefferson meant that a skillful writer uses as few words as possible to communicate his message. If I can successfully convey my thoughts to you using a 12-word sentence, then I am watering down my own message — and wasting your limited time — by stretching my sentence to 13 words or to 30. Concise writing saves time and effort for the reader, but demands more time and effort of the writer, as Jefferson pointed out. In writing this book, I did devote the time necessary to shorten each sentence to its minimum length.

Another priceless tip for good writing — a tip which I strive to follow — was articulated by the 20th-century philosopher, Mortimer Adler. Adler taught that "writing should be clear without being plain, and elevated without being obscure." By contrast, much writing in contemporary circles is plain without being clear, and obscure without being elevated. I will leave to your personal judgment whether I have successfully followed Adler’s prescription for good writing in Atheist Universe.
