Irreligion: A Mathematician Explains Why the Arguments for God Just Don't Add Up
Are there any logical reasons to believe in God? The mathematician and bestselling author John Allen Paulos thinks not. In Irreligion he presents the case for his own worldview, organizing his book into twelve chapters that refute the twelve arguments most often put forward for believing in Godís existence.

Despite the strong influence of his day job, Paulos says, there isnít a single mathematical formula in the book.
