Hello Everyone,

 

I just joined and i love the idea of talking about some good reads Atheism. I just ordered Richard Dawkins' "The Greatest Show on Earth"

 

Mainly I wanted to know of there is a certain book that is suggested to be read among the group or if it's just discussions of books that have been read.

 

Thanks!

Dan McGowan's Atheism for Dummies isn't for dummies.

Decades ago when I quit Catholicism I went to two meetings of a college atheist club and heard one strongly-felt opinion stated several times. I wanted to leave my mind open so I chose agnosticism. The recently-coined word apatheist describes my attitude well until well into my retirement.

Five years ago a man gave me an opportunity to tell about 15 members of a Toastmasters club my view of an afterlife. I could have begun with:

1. "I'm not an atheist; I'm an agnostic and I don't anticipate an afterlife" or

2. "I'm an atheist and I'm okay with being some chemicals in the ground."

I chose 2.

Having committed myself, I read the best known works of two of the Four Horsemen of Atheism and knew I was getting their strongly-felt opinions. I took part in many on-line discussions and learned much but did not get the overview I wanted.

McGowan's book is a well-organized overview and it's filling many gaps.

I similarly enjoyed Lisa Paddock's Supreme Court for Dummies.
