    Nice sequel to his first book...

    I first became acquanted with the author Mr. George H. Smith when he was editor and chief of Reason magazine. His first book, Atheism: A Case Against God, was a great outline to atheism. Smith wrote, or so I believe, this book, Why Atheism?, because he still had more to say. Smith expects the reader to be familiar with his first book. However, luckly, he does give short reviews to bring the reader up to date. Neverthless, Smith expects the reader to have read his first book. I actually agree with Smith on that aspect. Why Atheism? covers the issues of how atheists look at death or how they may possibly look at death. It tells about choosing reasoning philosophy over religious propaganda. I also gives the atheist a way to fight the theist's belief that all atheists are immoral. Smith goes on to explain that it's the theist's responsibility to prove to you that God does exist. It's not the Atheist's responsibility to prove that God does not exist. The book is great reading. I recommend it. Smith also has another book out called, 'Atheistm, Ayn Rand, and other Heresies.' I'm going to purchase this one next...Regards Frank...
