This book from Vox Day was a joy to read. Heavy on the history, statistics, and humour. It was light on theology for a book that is not quite on the side of atheism, and I think that that will please most readers on both sides of the argument. The book was very clearly written. It was to the point and explicit. The reader will not have to spend time reconstructing arguments they think they might have a problem with- the arguments are given in a clear and logical form already. If you are interested in the existence of God (on either side, so to speak), then I reccomend you read this book.

A reviewer

Another author seeking to sell a few copies of a poorly written/poorly reasoned book to die hard Christians across the nation in search of a reassuring pat on the back and someone who will tell them that they're not crazy. Awful.

    Irrational Vox Day

    For someone who says he is rational and will use reason to make his points, I find his use of ridicule offensive and his stooping to making fun of someone who he disagrees with also offensive. This book will not help in bringing a fair and balance argument to this discussion. All he will accomplish is to make atheists dig in and become defensive about their position and he will be playing to the arrogance of the theists and their feelings of superiority to everyone else. I feel that I need to put on waders to wade through the muck that is in this book. The basis of this rant is the same old dribble that has been around forever. He has an agenda that he will push onto everyone because he is right and everyone must acknowledge this or burn in hell (an imaginary place). His interpretation of the facts and of history is biased and slanted to his own ends. I give it a negative of 5 stars (-5).

    dont have to read it.

    Seeing the books that people who got this book also got, all the same fundamentalist, biblical claptrap, I know this will not be rational, and comes from a "faith" supporter. One who "knows" what isn't there. But I will read the sample. I will not spend money to support something I consider to be the asteroid of our demise. Religion

    The review says "The Irrational Atheist does not argue from

    The review says "The Irrational Atheist does not argue from a religious or Biblical perspective—its arguments are purely based on hard factual data and careful reasoning."
    The cover says "Dissecting the Unholy Trinity of Dawkins, Harris, and Hitchens". But they claim NOT to be arguing from a Biblical perspective! Using Biblical metaphors don't support that claim.
    This book would have been better if it had remained a tree.

    Really stupid book

    As usual, a book defending religion fails because religion and logic are mutually exclusive. Using the Bible as an argument for god makes as much sense as using Christmas as an argument for Santa.
