Most atheists books out there talk about the evidence against all gods created by human kind including the most famous: This book will logically explain why god doesn't exist but also finding harmony in the living natural world, as a former christian finding the the truth and finally realizing there's no god I found my self sad and with agony, this book helped me find a balance and appreciate life even more than when I believed in a invisible man in the sky.
Barkers is not only informative but also creative and passionate about getting the information out in the public. It was a great awesome read for me. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Spent way too much time on the Slave topic, then a little about Purpose, followed by page after page of name-dropping. I don't care what Brad and Angeline and Bruce say about religion.
I was hoping for more depth and encouragement about filling my life with purpose, not constant Rick Warren bashing. Not what I was expecting to read. The Good Atheist is a good book. The first 20 pages cover the of life story of the author, Dan Barker, and his changing experiences of dedication, confusion, rejection, conclusion. I expected the book to go on to elaborate on particular experiences of his life but the remaining pages turned to quotes from over actors, artists, authors, composers, philosophers, poets, scientists, etc on their belief in atheism.
It draws attention to the diversity of opinion among people about the concept of God and all his progeny. It is educational, entertaining, comforting. There are some gems of quotes that readers will identify with and adopt. Non-spiritual and spiritual can co-exist, allowing everyone to choose and no one to condemn. One person found this helpful. The majority of this book are quotes from famous people who eschewed religion.
The list is an interesting one because the list includes many that one might think was at least somewhat religious such as Beethoven. His central argument, in accordance with the bible, is that that to believe one's purpose is about glorifying God Christian god is to put oneself into a form of self-imposed slavery god as the master.
To give in to this slavery, the author argues, is to limit oneself from reaching one's true potential and to prevent oneself from seeing other versions of reality. Although I do not disagree with the author, I also think the author does make a critical mistake that many atheists tends to make. He is anti-Christianity rather than pro-inspiration. His view fails to inspire people to feel better about themselves and the world around them, and most importantly, about the future ahead of us.
The author, a former pastor, says atheism is not about dogma, and therefore, he stays away from it.
But that stance also prevents him from offering an alternative to the inspirational message of Christianity not necessarily a rational message that many find so appealing. In my view, what he should do is to take a page out of Christianity's playbook and choose to inspire people with atheism rather than spread the "Christianity is BS" message.
Not everyone would find it appealing.
Dan did one of our CFI Michigan events a yr or so ago - great fun. He's soooo talented and has some great ideas for happy living. Like Dan Barker but this is same old simple arguments just drawn out.

Not Enabled Word Wise: Hemant, I will add it to the reading list, until then — have you gotten anywhere with the publishers of Anarchy Evolution? The Humanist just featured the book in one of their reviews http: He will be in Naperville, Jan. I think aiming the subtitle at the Rick Warren book was a mistake. Thanks for the heads up. When I saw the title my reaction was: If he starts telling me I need purpose in my life I am checking out. Our language is full of that kind of assumption.
That rankles me the same way. Want more from the Friendly Atheist? January 9, This Needs a Caption January 9, Please Keep This in Mind We're gonna be late for Mass! We're gonna be late for Ass!
