This review is from: Sense and Goodness Without God: A Defense of Metaphysical Naturalism (Paperback)This book was great. It was extemely comprehensive and covered just about every aspect of Carrier's worldview from creation, morals, even art and goes about showing how everything within "Metaphysical Naturalism" is supported by scientific evidence. My only negavtive cririsism was it took a while to get going and some of the work on cosmology was a bit beyond the basic and required some effort to get through (which is why it lost a star).
Everything else though was spot on, and while it is not possible to disprove the exstence of god directly he proved that this worldview which rejects and has no need of a god, to be entirely correct and rational. I might agree with elements of his politics but still, read it you may be enlightened.

Near the end of your review, did you mean to write "I might DISagree with elements of his politics ...."?

Good short review zippy - I thoroughly endorse everything you say here, though I didn't personally have a problem with his cosmology but then I am a cosmology student, so perhaps I have an advantage there over most readers. I have also expanded on your comments in my own more detailed review below.
In answer to T.P. Atkinson's question, I suspect the answer is yes, since I also disagreed with a couple of Carrier's comments on politics; see my review below for more info.
