ISBN 10: 1528936140 ISBN 13: 9781528936149
New Paperback Quantity: 1
Seller:
Book Depository International
(London, United Kingdom)

Book Description Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The author's grandfather (born 1832) was a farm worker and jobbing gardener who, unusually for the time, was a committed atheist. An autodidact, his education ended when he was eleven, but he became well enough read to be, from his soap box, a socialist scourge of Ayrshire aristocracy and to correspond regularly with Keir Hardie and George Bernard Shaw. His son, the author's father (born 1882), worked his way from poverty to Glasgow University and subsequent Training College to become a schoolteacher, but later decided to take a BD degree at Edinburgh University and was ordained as a Presbyterian minister. That did not find favour with his father, who told him never to darken the door of the family home in Girvan till he gave up "that daft dog collar". That he never did, but the author, his son (born 1930), eventually followed his grandfather's ways, rejecting his father's. In due course he came to write this "apologia pro vita sua" as an atheist humanist. The book presents the view that all human experience, behaviour, thought, understanding and productive activity are the products of or depend on healthy human brains, educated and trained, to some extent, in the arts, sciences and the scientific method. The book proposes that the concept of "god" is unnecessary and differences in understanding or using it are a source of conflict or even wars which continue to threaten human progress and indeed the species as a whole. There is no need to invoke gods as the creators of man, the cosmos and systems of morality. Evolution and history demonstrate that such systems would emerge naturally and progressively without any "divine tutorials or interventions". Rationality and the scientific method offer insightful and effective understanding and ameliorations of the human condition rather than dependence on supernatural and superstitious principles demanded by gods and their prophets. Humanists may sometimes adopt moral principles from religious precepts, but only if they can be validated by present human knowledge and experience. Seller Inventory # AAZ9781528936149

Rationality and the scientific method offer insightful and effective understanding and ameliorations of the human condition rather than dependence on supernatural and superstitious principles demanded by gods and their prophets. Humanists may sometimes adopt moral principles from religious precepts, but only if they can be validated by present human knowledge and experience. How did the universe begin? Where do all life forms come from? What is the meaning of life? Are there universal standards for judging good and evil? Addressing these big questions is generally considered a task within the purview of religion rather than science. Central to the questions of how the universe and life forms began are two primary assumptions something cannot originate from nothing and the cause of something cannot lie within what it causes. These assumptions have led to a theistic world view of a creator God. Recent developments in theoretical physics, biology and neuroscience have, however, allowed Dr Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability.
