@ Corey K, I actually agree with you... I think one of the great things about being an atheist is that there are no guidlines that we must follow to be considered an atheist. Being an atheist is more about free will and not adopting anyone else's particular beliefs... and not bending what you believe so that it fits a certain standard of approval. It's one thing to write a book about your opinion on religion and/or atheism and what you think it means... but to put it in the format of a Bible "wannabe" may give theists the illusion that we feel we have somthing to prove. Why copy the ways of a religion that we disagree with? Atheists don't need any form of dogma like theists do... Just be a good person and question everything... If atheists end up having a "bible" I may rethink even being an atheist.
I would, however, like to read this book... I've read the real Bible... why not this one?
Thanks for sharing this Corey K.
+to read list :D
Interesting how the newsperson said the word 'god' like it existed, while dr. Grayling used only deity, buuuurn
I think it's a good idea to gather philosophical writing from many different authors and put it into one easily accessible resource. I wouldn't assiociate it with the Bible though, because I don't find much of the Bible inspiring and don't think it's worthy of being copied. Calling it a Bible also makes humanism look like a religion itself.
Despite the negatives, I'll probably read it sometime.
