I'm sorry I don't remember the author's name offhand. I think it's Kaufmann or Kauffman?

Has anyone read a book called Reinventing the Sacred? I've just started reading it so I'm trying to withold judgement but I can't help but feel slightly annoyed. The author's contention is that particle physics (reductionism) is insufficient for explaining emergent phenomena (complexity theory). OK...there is arguably a point to be made there. What I object to is his insistence that emergent properties are unpredictable and therefore unknowable and hence we should call the phenomena "god". wtf??? I think he's being intellectually lazy and pandering to the widest possible audience by suggesting that we can all agree on this definition of god.

Shubin's Your Inner Fish is a great book, too! I second that recommendation.
Comment by Don't label my essence! (Jared) on November 24, 2009 at 7:25pm
Though it isn't exactly a book on Atheism, I highly recommend "Your Inner Fish" by Neil Shubin. It's a short (a bit less than 220 pages), humorous, and fantastically enlightening explanation of evolution and how we know what we do about it. Shubin touches on range of subjects including paleontology, developmental biology, and embryology; all the while keeping things accessible and entertaining for any level of reader. If you'd like to start learning a little bit about Evolutionary Biology then this is a great place to start.

Demon Haunted World is one of my all time favorites! It was the third in a trio of books I read back to back to back that changed my life and my views of the world.

It's not written by an atheist, but this book SURE supports and gives ammunition to our cause of fighting against religious intolerance: You should read: "Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalists" by: John Shelby Spong.

Hey, what's the current selection? I'm personally re-reading God: The Failed Hypothesis and The God Delusion
