Atheist Universe: The Thinking Person's Answer to Christian Fundamentalism

Front Cover
Ulysses Press, Aug 4, 2006 - Religion - 256 pages
Is there really a God? Or does God exist only in our heads? Is the Bible truly God's Word, or a jumble of fanciful myths? This book is your front-row ticket to mankind's most enthralling debate. An atheist for thirty years, David Mills argues that God is unnecessary to explain the universe and life's diversity, organization and beauty. This unique and captivating book rebuts every argument ever offered to "prove" God's existence and the Bible's credibility - arguments from logic, common sense, Christian apologetics, philosophy, ethics, history, and up-to-the-minute science. It's all here for you in one richly entertaining, comprehensive, and easy-to-read volume. Few other books provide such spellbinding inquiry and arrive at such a controversial and well-documented conclusion. ""The publication of David's work on the dangers and disadvantages of devout religiosity will be very useful for anyone with harmful religious beliefs. Honest, frank, and right to the point! I found it very fine reading." - Albert Ellis, Ph.D., father of modern psychotherapy, author of "A Guide to Rational Living and 53 other books. ""I like this material very much. David Mills says very ably and clearly all that needs to be said." - Ashley Montagu, Ph.D., Harvard and Princeton anthropologist, author of "The Elephant Man. (Commenting on Chapter 3)
