I want to read something I haven't before... I have a copy of Michel Onfray's Atheist Manifesto I haven't had the time to pick up yet... also maybe we could throw in a few fictional titles too for those of us who enjoy that sort of thing.
Not a suggestion for the book club, just a recommendation for an awesome reference book. "The Counter-Creationism Handbook" By Mark Isaak (amazon) It takes common arguments from creationists and lists them in an outline form and then tics off evidence against. I feel a lot more comfortable reading all those absurd comments on youtube videos and blogs now! Honestly if you wanted to make your own thunderf00t style videos I think this is all you need...
anything by Ehrman is fantastic. can't go wrong there. and Smith's classic is a withering critique of the belief in god. his was the first book i read, way back when i was 11, that made me understand that there was a name for my lack of belief. i've read it probably 3 or 4 times since. i'm always ready to go and reread it. it's like a trip down memory lane. :)
I am currently reading (and probably everyone else has already ;) god is not Great and Breaking the Spell. I am interested in next reading The Secular Conscience. I would go for any the books mentioned in this thread however - thanks for the suggestions!
Feel presumptuous making suggestions after joining TA just two days ago, but I've been wanting to read Karl Popper, 'The Logic of Scientific Discovery' for ages, but found it heavy going and I could use some peer pressure and motivation to make a proper start on it.
I'm with Omnicide, I've been eyeing up Atheist Manifesto...if I have any free time grrrr. I'm also reading "Godless" by Dan Barker right now, which is a good book for any former Christians. Something sciencey would be cool too. Darwin???
Origin of the Species would be great to read. i'm surprised by how so few people, even those who vehemently opposed creationism and who have somewhat of an understanding of evolution, have read the seminal work that started it all.
