    Why I Am Not A Christian

    Bertrand Russell is masterful in this compilation of his essays and other writings. Absolutely wonderful.

    Great for the Incredibly Intellectual, Not for those of pure blind faith

    This Book is absolutely wonderful if you are an Atheist, an Agnostic, or simply believe that religion has a more negative than positive effect on the world. I guess that in a perfect world the fundamentalists would read this book and come to the realization that they're traditions and century-old beliefs are not always the right thing for our ever-changing nation and world but unfortunately I can not see someone like that reading or understanding this book. I would recommend this book to any person who is intelligent enough to know about the world religious agenda and the state of affairs in the world form pre-WWI to post-WWII. Overall, I think it may be best for most people simply to read the first essay entitled "Why I am Not a Christian" and not worry about the subsequent essays unless you have a great interest in philosophy.

    God gets His (Her?) Ass Kicked

    In this brilliantly witty collection of essays and speeches, Russell thoroughly demolishes the fallacies of Christianity. I enjoyed reading this logician's arguments against accepting doctrine and dogma on blind faith and other such poppycock proposed by Christian fanatics. God TRULY disappears in a puff of logic in this book.

    A very good and thoughtful read!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Russell's logic is penetrating. He places religion on the operating table and dissects it. Very Nietzche. A definite must read.
