For those who haven't already seen it, TAs very own AngietheAntiTheist is doing a chapter by chapter review (demolition?) on Rick Warrens "The Purpose Driven Life" on her YouTube channel. She just posted chapter 7, so only another 33 to go! You can catch the very start of the series at http://www.youtube.com/user/AngieAntiTheist#p/u/9/ywDNQZelUJk

I am coming mid-stream to this conversation, but I just read The Faith Instinct by Nicholas Wade. He comes down on the side of religion having originally provided an adaptive advantage for group cohesion in hunter gatherers. Worth a look for the evolutionary explanation of religion.

Anyone have a pdf of Lord Of The Flies/and or anything by Eric Hoffer

Just finished up with 'irreligion' by John Allen Paulos.

It wasn't as humorous as many reviews stated. But a good read none-the-less. A good primer to the newly curious Atheist. This book takes a look at 12 of the most common arguments put forth for a belief in God, and shows where the logic is lacking. It's a nice short book, so I'd suggest 'irreligion' and 'Atheist Universe' as great starter material for new Atheists.

Agreed on the misuse of quantum theory a la 'What the Bleep do we Know." This guy is a little more sophisticated than that and thus far hasn't invoked the uncertainty principle or quantum mechanics explicitly. His contention is that we can't predict the emergent property of a complex system based on looking at its underlying components. As I said, there is an argument to be made there, at least given our current state of knowledge. Tempurature of a gas is a case in point: Temperature is an emergent property that you can't discern from studying one particle. But my point is: So what? You can't determine a lot of things by looking at one component. That doesn't mean it can never be known and it certainly doesn't mean we should couch it in mystical language. I think he wants to say that the emergent creative property of the particles of the entire uni- or multi-verse is "god". Well, screw that. If the universe had an emergent creative propertty then the laws of thermodynamics would be out the window.

The concept's certainly not original with this author. Throwing 'quantum effects' in to provide some fuzziness that god (spirits, the will of the cosmic all, etc) can be stuffed into is distressingly common and intellectually bankrupt.
