9781908675057: Oh, Your god!: The Evil Idea That is Religion

From the New Atheist arguments of Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins to the material observations of Lucretius, Epicurus, and Democritus, the discussion of what religion is and the role it plays in our lives is the single greatest dialogue we can have. Oh, Your god! is a compelling assertion that the entire enterprise of organized religion is a thing for which the world and our species would have been better without. Drawing from timeless philosophers, modern debates, historical events and current social climes, Joshua Kelly has compiled a series of observations that will aid any budding anti-theist in their study of religious malice and provide a solid insight into the evils of religion for those sitting on the cosmological fence. Examining the murders of Nigeria's "witch children" to the subversion of sexual emancipation to the essence of psychological slavery, the hypocrisy of fundamentalism, September 11th, the definition of marriage, the pseudo-morality of monotheistic mythology, and many other examples, this book is a comprehensive scrutiny of the evils that religion has inflicted on our persons, cultures, and our "cognitive liberation as evolved primates".

Review:

  • "Joshua Kelly offers a new and entertaining perspective on religion and the conflict that it has historically been responsible for. Kelly makes a strong case as he sets out to dispel the myth of the goodness of religion." 
-- David G. McAfee, author of Mom, Dad, I'm an Atheist: The Guide to Coming Out as a Non-believer and Disproving Christianity and other Secular Writings
  • "[An] excellent new book."  --Hemant Mehta, The Friendly Atheist. 
  • "Striking and thought-provoking...a book that inspires people to think!" Fourculture Magazine


  • "Joshua Kelly delivers a devastating argument against organized religion. Using both wit and austerity, he develops an explanation of the terror it has caused among our cultures and societies over a lengthy course of time (Some topics offered new information for me, could be very useful while in debate). Aside from the main argument, he offers a number of atheism-related quotations and a detailed bibliography (Both prove interesting). Looking forward to what he has in store for us in the coming months and years!" -- J.D. Brucker, author of Improbable: Is There Any Reason To Believe In God


  • "Down to earth and to the point for theists and non-theists alike. Opens religious beliefs to the light of day in a fair and descriptive manner." --Dennis Erickson, author of God, Man and Moses
