A fresh gale of reason,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: MANUAL FOR CREATING ATHEISTS (Paperback)
A Manual for Creating Atheists is a fresh gale of reason helping to blow away irrationality such as pseudoscience and superstition. I'm an avid reader of books on atheism, scepticism and reason, and it's been a while since I've been this impressed with the clarity of thought and the wealth of new ideas.
I was particularly impressed with chapter 8, Faith and the Academy, which is about epistemological relativism not only among the academic left but elsewhere in society as well. The book gives you a better understanding about how we know about reality. I completely agree with Peter Boghossian that faith is not a virtue and that the walls of respect built around religions don't need to be respected. Ideas can be attacked even though you treat people with respect.
