Product Description

Product Description

"All God Worshippers Are Mad: a little book of sanity" seeks to demonstrate in a logical and common sense manner that the fundamental beliefs held by all monotheists are incomprehensible and lunatic. The method employed is to take the obscurantist vocabulary of monotheism and translate it into plain language. In doing so, the book attempts to show that god worshippers themselves do not understand the things they claim to believe, and by which they live their lives.

For the reader who believes in god, this polemical little volume may help them to understand why secularists get so frustrated and infuriated when in debate with god worshippers. For the secularist, this book is a reminder that not everyone is susceptible to reasoned argument. The reminder is a timely one for those who live in an era of the resurgence of Islamic Jihad. A clear understanding of the irrationality of monotheism is something which matters urgently when confronted by the global rise of religious fascism.

What is said in this little book will no doubt be found impolite and overly-provocative by those authoritarian people within the politically correct establishment who conflate morality with niceness. They will probably utter the familiar refrain that we ought not to denigrate other people’s deeply and sincerely held beliefs. Instead we should live in a permanent state of apology for the crime of having minds of our own. But religions are no more above criticism than any other ideologies. They have no entitlement to a privileged status. Besides which, large numbers of god worshippers feel free to denigrate and insult everyone else’s deeply and sincerely held beliefs, so why should they have special permission to be hypocrites?

More About the Author

JP Tate was born into a working class family way back in the winter of 1961 and has spent the last fifty-two years coping with being alive in the world. It wasn't his idea. He spent the first decade of his adult life in unskilled labouring jobs before escaping to become a philosophy student. Over the next ten years he earned four university degrees including a PhD and became the wise old sage of the west. These days he is pursuing his desire to write, it being the most effective and satisfying way he has yet found to handle that same old pesky business of coping with being alive in the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uncompromising and thought provoking 5 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a book of two halves. In the first half the author makes his initial claim very clearly and convincingly that the fundamental beliefs common to all monotheism are not merely wrong but incoherent. The argument is persuasive and it is hard to deny the conclusion that to sincerely hold to such beliefs is so contrary to logic that it is a form of lunacy.

In the second half of the book the argument moves steadily into what I suspect was probably the author's reason for writing the book, namely the danger of Islamism or Islamofascism or Islamic fascism, call it what you will, that confronts the world today. The best section of the book comes toward the end when twenty reasons are given for recognising the fascistic character of Islamism. I thought the approach of a twenty point checklist comparing Islamism with Nazism was a compelling way of getting the argument across. Personally, I thought this section was worth the price of the book by itself, since it is a fairly short book and doesn't cost much. I found the whole thing thought-provoking and if you agree with the basic argument, as I found that I did, then by the end our prospects for the future look quite intimidating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Straightforward, witty and logical 9 May 2014
By john
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a short book but a really enjoyable one at that. The author makes his attack not on any one particular religion or any particular belief or any bad history but the very root of religious belief, that being an all creating God, that he answers prayer and demands worship. These are the main beliefs of any religion, you can't be religious if you don't believe in these fundamental things yet as the author so wittily argues the beliefs are once really examined totally insane. It really deconstructs religious belief and examines it in a logical manner to find out the core beliefs and shows that they are highly irrational and that its believers are, well, mad.
Don't let that offend you too much of you are a believer, but you should really look into what it is you say you believe and decide then if its rational. I especially loved the first chapter on God which shows that the whole concept in unimaginable and therefor impossible and destroys the believers usual defense of hiding behind vague language.

Well recommended for anyone though i'm sure it will be more widely read by atheists and agnostics, still i guarantee a good laugh and a clear picture of what it is religious people believe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Many good points 16 April 2014
By Tony
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book points out yet more reasons why religion is just a collection of ridiculous, contradictory ideas.

The reasoning is thought out and straightforward. I can't really see much wrong with the author's thought processes. I don't agree with everything he says, but it is a good read.

An earlier reviewer criticised what he saw as the book turning into a denouncement of Islam. Yes, towards the end it does. But I don't see this as a bad thing. The more that people speak up against things that they don't like, the better.

You aren't "allowed" to say anything against Islam, it seems. I don't agree.

5.0 out of 5 stars UTTERLY LOGICAL 19 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Real common sense. Well worth reading. I have never thought religious belief and doctrine has any logic at all so it was good to read such a clearly thought through synopsis of sensible reasoning. Religious belief systems are thinly disguised political ideologies useful for manipulating masses and,, where a desired outcome is required (usually fuelled by greed (we want your resources, thank you very much) and driven, as often as not,by testosterone (exuberant, enthusiastic war-mongers re usually male), a useful tool for brainwashing a given populace into conflict for the greater gain of the perpetrator. People might be offended by some of the content if they are fervent believers in one dogma or another but this little tome may help to at least drop the seeds of doubt here and there. Recommended reading.

An intelligent and energetic work that requires an answer and challenge that I cannot give. I would love to see a reasoned counter to this.

So many words used by religious believers are meaningless. Anyone who lives in the real world would find this book supportive.
