This book is a mindfuck and a halfHaving gotten that out of the way let me explain why You know how LEGO toys have these convenient age rangessuggestions on their boxes This book should most definitely have an I sticker on it saying 120 or above You see I used to consider myself a bright guy I did Not an intellectual by any stretch of the imagination but let s say nine times out of ten I could tell clay and toffee apart But this book was meant for a far educated or to put it in simple terms SMARTER reader than me When I picked it up I was under the wrong impression that this will be something like the Zeitgeist movie only without the bullshit I though it would be this entertaining little book debunking the Bible and Christianity concentrating on the flawed facts or lack thereof in The Book You know the fun stuff like a 600 year old man building an ark a talking serpent the immaculate conception and so on The hits so to speak Nope The literal content of the Bible was hardly even touched on in this book instead it dug into the roots of Christianity A very philosophical book that I was completely unprepared for I never even read a Philosophy for Dummies for starters not to mention a real philosophical book up to this point in my life The arguments presented in this book were so well crafted and perfectly worded that I had to hold this book in one hand and a dictionary in the other Moreover I caught myself re reading many paragraphs and passages over and over again to understand at least the gist of it On several occasions I had to stop reading altogether for a minute or two to give my Pentium III of a head time to process the information I was ambushed withSeveral years down the road when I am no longer a manchild I will be sure to take another shot a this book because after reading it this first time I feel like I took away only a fraction of it s content First though me getz me some BRAINZ

George H. Smith õ 6 Summary Free read ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB õ George H. Smith Review í Atheism The Case Against God 106 N in general and concludes that religious belief cannot have any place in the life of modern rational manIt is not my purpose to convert people to atheism but to demonstrate that the belief in God is irrational to the point of absurdity If a person wishes to continue believing in a god that is his prerogative but he can no longer excuse his belief in the name of reason and moral necessity. George H Smith s Atheism The Case Against God purports to be a book showing the irrationality of Theism Full of critical arguments some of which are valid it seems to be a very scholarly text to be taken seriously There is one major flaw however for anyone who has even the most basic philosophical training Smith claims that Atheism is not the absence of belief in God plus certain positive beliefs atheism is the absence of belief in God If we can show theism to be unsupported false or nonsensical then we have simultaneously established the validity of atheism pg 18 For Smith a positive beliefclaim is an assertion which one claims to be true pg 15 He also claims that the most prominent form of atheism Critical Atheism contends that the belief in god is irrational and should therefore be rejected pg 17 So in order for Smith to even make the claim that Atheism has no positive beliefs or that theism is irrational he has to admit that these are truth claims positive beliefs For anyone that can see the contradiction you ll notice then that Smith undermines the entire thesis of his work And that s the book in a nutshell
