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 God's existence. Interspersed among these counterarguments are remarks on a variety of irreligious themes, ranging from the nature of miracles and creationist probability to cognitive illusions and prudential wagers. Despite the strong influence of his day job, Paulos says, there isn't a single mathematical formula in the book.

A difficult subject, but a good writer for the job. A quick read. Author promises not to flaunt his math skills, but alas there is a bit more talk of numbers and logic than I care to get my mind around. Nevertheless, he mixes it with anecdotes that are entertaining. Read full review
