2-0 out of 5 stars Dawkins doesn't believe in God. So what?
This book just tells us what we already know: atheists like Richard Dawkins don't believe in God! So what?
3-0 out of 5 stars Misunderstanding of Hindu Deities
I will only comment on the attempt by Richard Dawkins to make Hindu dharma a polytheistic religion. Presumably he thinks the existence of numerous Deities show that Hindu dharma is polytheistic. What he does not realize is that polytheism/monotheism are western categories. Hindu Darshanas (Darsana means points of view and is translated as philosophy by western translators) are classified principally as Advaita (NOT TWO), Vishistadvaita (Qualified unity) and Dvaita (Two). Advaita says that only the Ultimate Reality, Brahman, exists. Vishistadvaita says that Brahman is the sum of God,living creatures and the world (hence it is called Qualified One) . Dvaita says that God and the world with its living creature are eternally different (hence it is called the TWO system).
5-0 out of 5 stars A message from the Middle World
There is a challenge in reviewing a book of this sort - being "objective".Customers want reviewers to stand aside from prejudices when they assess an item's value as a purchase.It's a stance nearly impossible with this book - few people are indifferent to their perceived gods.

5-0 out of 5 stars A welcome antidote to the rising tide of ignorance and superstition
David Mills' "Atheist Universe" is a lucid presentation of the rationalist viewpoint on the nature of our world and how it can be explained without resorting to mysticism and unprovable assertions about a Supreme Being.In it, Mills carefully lays out the reasons why we needn't assume the existence of a God (or gods) to understand natural phenomena, and demolishes numerous assertions and teachings of religious and spiritualist propagandists.
3-0 out of 5 stars Basic scientific evidence, but a bit uneven
It's actually extremely amazing that a book like this would be written in the 21 stcentury. The scientific credibility of the Bible and religious interpretations of the natural world have been completely discredited since the middle of the 19th century and well before that for many. It hardly seems necessary to rehash and debunk Christian beliefs concerning the age of the universe, planetary motion, evolution, the evidence of miracles, intelligent design, etc. For those who need these arguments to prop up newly found doubt, here they are.
5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant
This is simply the best book I've read regarding atheism in the past twenty years.As a former evangelist and seminary graduate, I found this book to be a simple, yet profound, clarification and summarization of the issues that need to be honestly addressed by all believers and truth-seekers today.We've now had the benefit of centuries of scientific data, and it's time that we deal with those data forthrightly and avoid the mistakes of our forefathers.For them it may have been more permissible to misunderstand the science, but for us today it can only be a brazen and embarrassingly oafish recalcitrance that would cause us to ignore the facts at hand.David exposes the truth and addresses the data in a manner in which there can be no misunderstanding, or refutation, of what to the honest truth-seeker has to be obvious, and no longer controversial.The facts are in, and David pulls all the salient data together in a brilliantly written exposition.There are other books that are more technical, but none that are more lucid, succinct, contemporary, and saturated with the intellectual response that we must provide to the facts. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Sad Story But Inevitable Outcome (new review)
It is sad to hear that a 19 year old priest that gave his all just one day realised it was all in vain. One who chooses to be a priest should be convinced before he begins that God exists and that he knows God otherwise what happened to Barker is going to happen to anyone. Barker's case should be a test case, only ordain priests that are certain about their faith and are not going to loose it later down the track. Not everyone can be a priest, it takes faith, it takes a change of life, it takes commitment, it means that when you're put to the test as Barker was you don't fold. You can believe in vain the bible makes this very clear and Barker knows it all too well!
5-0 out of 5 stars Clear, concise reasoning
Dan Barker provides clear and concise reasoning in refuting the bible's claims, as well as claims that a god exists.A must have for anyone doubting religion, as well as for those who have overly religious relatives.

4-0 out of 5 stars As good for reference as for reading straight through...
I have a couple of habits loathed by purist bibliophiles--dog-earing pages and highlighting/annotating passages. This is one of those rare books in which the dog-earing ends up being virtually useless for review because it was a rare page that didn't have some thought or reference making a folded corner ostensibly worthwhile.
4-0 out of 5 stars System philosophy, missed oportunity
At last, I'm finding time to sit down and write a review of Richard Carrier's Sense and Goodness Without God. As I mentioned, further parts may follow; this part is focused on general quality over the specific ideas.

5-0 out of 5 stars nicely played
I would appreciate it if people would report on the books, and not on their personal opinions of those without theism. this was one of the most readable and enjoyable books I've read on the matter, and caused a turning point in my lack of believe when it caused me to realize that I had no need to be on the defensive, that it was not my job to validate anything, but rather the job of the people with a positive belief. Nothing I could type would cover it as well as Lawrence Louis' review, and I highly recommend scrolling down to read it. this was a book I would have gladly payed more for.

3-0 out of 5 stars You can save time and Just Click NO below, if you wish
There is something instantly recognizable about certain kinds of debaters - something about the eyes, the constantly-present smirk, the readiness to cry, "Oh, yeah?"
4-0 out of 5 stars Covered Most of the Bases
This is a good book that covers most of the bases and gives a lot of valid reasons why religion and god or gods are falsehoods. Smith also gives some of the history of the philosophy of Reason.

5-0 out of 5 stars Etz Hayim Commentary
I am extremely satisfied with this commentary, as I am a Torah student, and this adds to the volume of material I require for such study, especially with the fact that it is the latest in Conservative theology.

4-0 out of 5 stars quick notes about the mini edition
-i like the cover stock, paper stock, and binding on the small edition. as long as you're somewhere in the middle it can stay open on your desk without you having to push on it, and the texture is a neat simulation of the leather original.
2-0 out of 5 stars Etz Hayim
I consider this to be one of the finest torah translations and commentaries written. It is a pity that the travel edition font is so small as to be unreadable without a magnifier It would have been far better to see it produced in two volumes in a larger more readable font size. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Hoped for more...
I have enjoyed Fox's other work (namely Pagans and Christians), but this was perhaps one of the worst critical works on the Bible.Fox's alleged discrepencies are so "already been there" that I wonder if he took the time to read any of the leading works on the subject (for instance Gleason Archer's works).
2-0 out of 5 stars The UN-researched Version
I have never written a review of a book that I did not read, but I must admit that I started this book but gave up on page 198. Therefore, my review is of only the first half of the book. 5-0 out of 5 stars Important questioning
The first time I picked up Robin Lane Fox's 'The Unauthorised Version: Truth and Fiction in the Bible', I was intrigued. While this was hardly the first time I had heard the historical information of the bible questioned in terms of accuracy or even plausibility, it was I believe the first time I had ever heard the word fiction applied in a serious way (the title, no less!) to consideration of the bible.

4-0 out of 5 stars A manual for humanistic Judaism
A simple, straight forward presentation of Humanistic Judaism, with cultural and historical informtion about Jewish customs and holidays. It is especially useful in sorting out what's worth keeping, and what's not, for those who don't believe in god but want to stay Jewish.

5-0 out of 5 stars Like I said before -- Jewshness is BOTH culture and religion
I'm giving this book five stars, NOT because I agree with its theology (I most certainly do NOT - I myself am a religious Jew) but because it is well-written and thought provoking in its own genre.Judith Seid is a "cultural Jew," that is, a Jew who relates to the history, music, art, customs and traditions of Judaism in a secular way, but who does not believe in God or "the religion."Her book explores non-theistic ways that cultural Jews can connect with their heritage. (Isaac Asimov would have loved this book -- he was just such a cultural Jew.)
5-0 out of 5 stars A fascinating perspective on secular Judaism
"God-Optional Judaism," by Judith Seid, is an intriguing book that offers an answer to the question: Do you have to believe in God to be a practicing Jew? Seid says "No."Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars This Idiot's review of an Idiot's Book
The Complete Idiot's Guide to Jewish History and Culture is a must read for anyone who is even remotely interested in the Jewish culture or knows a Jewish person. This books takes you into the history and culture of Jewish people. It explores what it really means to be Jewish, why we are who we are, and how you can better understand us.
3-0 out of 5 stars Only OK
I did not find this book to be as comprehensive as I would have liked. For instance, the only holidays he really explains are Purim, Hanukkah, and Yom Ha-Shoah. He mentions Yom Kippur only in passing; considering it is the most important Jewish holiday, I think merited much more explanation. There was no mention of Rosh Hashanah. I did find the coincidences of tragedy falling on Tisha B'Av interesting -- I definitely did not know that so many devastating events, from the destruction of both Temples to the expulsion of Jews from Spain all occurred on the same day. Rabbi Blech's notion that it is a message from God certainly seems plausible.

If you are interested in his work and thoughts and not very interested in his personal characteristics and when he did what this book is probably not for you. Thoroughly researched though.

2-0 out of 5 stars An Incomplete Presentation of the Facts
Many differences between Christianity and the religions that the author has studied are not mentioned in this book, and even further, some of the religious accounts that the author talks about are disputed.
4-0 out of 5 stars Jackson can only go as far as he knows, just as anyone else
The reason why so many so-called pagans have similar stories about a Egyptian base story is because influence travels fast.This was definitely the result of certain African groups who were part of the Egyptian-Nubian expansions, preferably the Dravidians, (A Nubian Group) who settled in India, Asia, and the middle east, that was later occupied by Asians and Indo-Euro's who gradually invaded the settled places of the Dravidians for different reasons.Through out African history, Africans, especially the Egyptian-Nubians allowed Euro-Asians and Indo-Euro's to study in Egypt, as did the Dravidian-Nubians.At later times the Asiatic-Euro-Indo's grew in large numbers and turned into conquerers as this was a more suitable means for pastoral expansion via the constant migration of nomadic counterparts who decided to become farmers and needed the land of the Dravidians, and, for other reasons, such as racist segregation, which existed in India way before it did in Europe.Truthfully people will adopt other people's ideas be it for assimilation reasons to survive under some larger groups onesided views or because new concepts can have a socio-political promise to strengthen ones society through the order of a influentual neighbor.It is not hard to trace Taoism back to Egypt and Africa as a whole, just as it is not hard to see the story of Zoroastrianism being the result of the Persian conquest of Egypt which went back and forth in who was victorious and who influenced who.Just as it is not hard to see that the whole story of christ through out antiquity was the result of influence, not a prophetic phenomenon that took place in isolation with different societies.At any given time it has been evident of different societies to syncretize someone elses beliefs and practices with there own, so, what Mr. Jackson presents should be of no alarm just as the view of everyone coming from a common ancestor from Africa, and not from a multi-human-evolution view, which there is no concrete evidence for.There are better books than this one that will give a clear picture of paganism-christianity from Egyptian philosophy.I recommend for any seeker, the work of "Muata Ashby" who does a better job of explainig how christianity came to be from antiquity to the modern day practices.buy "African Origins 1,2,3 and "The Mystical Journey From Jesus To Christ." all by Dr. Muata A. Ashby.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just the facts jack!
Apparentlly Louis didnt understand this book.Christianity is the result of greeks and Romans making there own belief system by modifying the Black Egyptian concepts, indeed the Greeks and Romans were pagan being that they distorted a system that was already complete to its followers.So, it is anyones opinion of who is a pagan or not, christianity has no more validation of being the truth than ppl who worship a frog as a god.Indeed, Louis, there was a established uncorrupted religion before the christendom, it is exactly what this author speaks of, duh! so since the whole christian doctrine, (concepts and events) comes from Egytian doctrine and history you figure out who is the teacher and the student. (pun intended)Just as Mr. Jackson showed and proved, there were civilized ppl before a so called jesus christ, and just as Anubis said, Egyptians taught that existence came from a Monotheistic source but you could not know this source by any other means but its neter(made visible Truth), meaning its actions of manifesting, which is why all human beings are gods because they are the manifested neter or neteru along with all other visible things that are experienced relatively.It would help most who critique ones work if they leave their bias opinion and emotions to the side to view a different point of view which is equipted with more facts than faith or fear of a sovereign god. For the record what is called god is not a thingbut subjective consciousness only what is created can be a thing because a thing is what is objectified (created), for, no one can see consciousness, you know you are because of awareness of beiing, which is consciousness, therefore, should not be viewed as something that is known to a seperate entity indeed this way of viewing existence is self defeating and laughable at best.The whole view of consciousness in the brain is no different than a human in a space suit to experience a different reality without air, and yet humans know that they exist prior and beyond the space suit and so the same is known for the conscious and brain connection, indeed, consciousness and conscious experience are not the same reality, one created and controls the development of the other, this is why Egyptians taught that everyone is god. What are you made of?, dirt, blood, water, neuron pulses, blah blah blah, these ingredient are created things which come from god so therefore are all space particles are god just as humans are.Without intentionality there can be no experiences, all worlds and beliefs comes from consciousness( all encompassing GOD), which cannot come from anything, in order for things to be created there has to already exist an intelligent source but I wouldnt call this the christian god since that concept for most is distorted and incomplete and defames the Egyptian concepts and perception of Maat which taught that all things come from the same source including human beings.When humans speak of a god they are speaking about a subject which is the (thing) but not the actual experience of (what is) through perception rather than ignorant concecption. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars No surprise, God was not found.
This is worth reading, but more slowly than regular nonfiction.Neither Dr. Stenger nor science found a deity of any sort, and this is not surprising.Unlike many current writers, this author argues "the case of god" from the area of his expertise.This is why the book reads so well, and why it is an excellent choice for serious reading.
1-0 out of 5 stars I'm laughing...but amazed,anyway,at Stenger's leaps
"Has Science Found God?" by Victor Stenger
2-0 out of 5 stars keep your minds open
This guy did the best an atheist can but I suggest anyone reading keep their minds open and read alternative views eg: the wonder of the world by varghese. Although brave attempts are made to explain for eg why there is something rather than nothing you would find upon further study an eternal non intelligence is as unexplainable as an eternal intelligence as the ultimate source of anything. Even so there are many many things about reality you would find as you look deeper from alternative views that require that the ultimate source of everything be intelligent. By the way can Mr Stenger create anything that somehow just occured ultimately without cause which is what you must believe if you are an atheist? ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Thought-provoking ...
A thought-provoking book for those who wish to look long and deliberately at their everday American (or modern western) life. Is there a living, personal, and triune God in its midst? What David Wells did in three books (No Place for Truth, God in the Wastleand, Losing our Virtue), Gay does in one. (By the way, don't pay attention to the four stars; the fifth is only for literary masterpieces.)
5-0 out of 5 stars An Outstanding work of Christian Scholarship
This is one of the best and most insightful (and dare I say important?) books I have ever read. It's clarity, depth of insight and profundity have few equals in contemporary scholarship. I am reminded, reading this book, of the first time I ever read Francis Schaeffer's "How Should We Then Live?" This book is equally profound in its insight and implications, but is a much better work of applied scholarship than that one is.

2-0 out of 5 stars More aptly titled "Why I Am an Atheist"
I agree with the first reviewer here, but I'd like to add why I was disappointed by this book.If I could have read it in a book store, I would never have bought it.Understand that I was looking for a book that would confirm that I am an agnostic, neither a theist nor an atheist, and therefore expected arguments of why I should believe in God as well as why I should not.

5-0 out of 5 stars Expected more from the atheistic side...
I will focus on what I thought was the main weakness of Armstrong's argument and great strengths of Craig's argument; the resurrection.This is clearly the main point of the debate, for it either proves the Christian point or dismantles the Christian view of God (which seemed to be Armstrong's purpose as most of his arguments would not apply to other views of God).
5-0 out of 5 stars Good back and forth between debaters
William Lane Craig debates a lot. Most of the time, his opponents don't get to respond to many of his arguments. This book is a welcome exception to that, as robust atheist Walter Sinnott-Armstrong does engage each of Craig's arguments. The debate is fast paced, exciting, and professional, but not out of the league of popular audiences.
5-0 out of 5 stars Follow where the evidence leads
This book presents Craig's cogent and compelling arguments for theism. After reading this book, notwithstanding Sinnott-Armstrong's arguments, it becomes difficult to be justified to believe in atheism. (Need I say Anthony Flew's "conversion"?) For this reason, atheists like one reviewer below (Richard Walter Widen) cannot but resort to ad hominem and other fallacies, attacking Craig's method of reading from a prepared text (which is irrelevant to his arguments' validity) rather than refuting his arguments per se. So if you would read this book, first get trained in critical and logical thinking. Then follow where the evidence leads. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Near Perfection
Julian Baggini's short introduction to atheism has many merits, most notably its length.This book can be easily read in one or two sittings.As a result of its short length, the book is also very concise and clear.
5-0 out of 5 stars A very good (as well as very short) introduction
In this slim (100 pages) volume about atheism the author writes in an assertive, reasonable, knowledgeable, humane, and personal tone with just a touch of aggressiveness - a tone that I found enjoyable. Theism and atheism are important personal issues for which an overly technical and cold presentation in an introductory book would not be appropriate.
5-0 out of 5 stars An effective summary of common atheist arguments and beliefs
By Julian Baggini's own admission, this is not a book aimed at theologians, but at ordinary, everyday people who happen to think about God sometimes. It is not a systematic attempt to disprove God, nor even to convince anyone of God's nonexistence. Rather, "Atheism: A Very Short Introduction" seeks to explain and justify many of the common beliefs (and lack thereof) held by modern atheists, and the simple, concise, and cogent style of the writing makes this an invaluable guide for the curious theist, the validation-seeking atheist, and the undecided agnostic alike.

4-0 out of 5 stars Quite uplifting.
I read this book at a rather appropriate time, seeing as I'm writing my thesis regarding the treatment of Jews in post World War II Los Angeles this coming semester.I found the stories sweet and uplifting, or moving and intriguing.It's a quick read, and an enjoyable one.Some stories were a bit schmaltzy, a little too saccharine, but for the most part they were quite good.

5-0 out of 5 stars A heartwarming collection of tales to soothe the soul and lift the spirit.
"Chicken Soup for the Jewish Soul" is almost redundant; Jewish chicken soup was the original cure-all in the first place! This collection of 101 stories is divided into several thematic units that demonstrate the power and beauty of Judaism in the synagogue and in our daily lives. Sections include To Life, Being A Jew, On Love and Kindness, Our Common Humanity, Family, The Holocaust, Insights and Lessons, Eclectic Wisdom, and a glossary of Hebrew and Yiddish terms.
5-0 out of 5 stars Cried the entire time!
This is a really heartwarming book.The stories here really get to you. My husband is almost done reading, it and he thinks the stories are amaizing.We recommend it to everyone. ... Read more
