The author is well read, and I'm sure he's well intentioned, but his arguments are filled with straw man arguments, arguments from authority, and post hoc reasoning. He attacks notable atheists such as Bertrand Russel and Charles Darwin for their life styles and political views. What he fails to realize is that it doesn't matter what the character flaws of the individual are, their contributions to science and philosophy still matter. He also frames the lack of a scientific explanation for how the universe exists as proof of god's existence. The reality is that lack of evidence is not evidence of god. It's not a one or the other explanation. There are myriad possibilities for how the universe began, and god is but one of those possibilities. He correlates Nazis, and Communists as the "lawlessness of atheism" as if atheism is the reason those atrocities actually occurred. He fails to acknowledge similar situations done in the name of god. The most noteworthy being the Christian crusades. What he doesn't realize is that the stark reality is that the success of any particular political structure has no bearing as proof as to whether or not god actually exists. This is a direct quote from his book, "..and another piece of cherished wisdom reveals wishing for something does not make it so. These same principals apply to the longing for a deity-free universe." The author fails to realize: these same principals apply to the longing for a universe ruled by a deity. I'm not saying he's wrong. But I am saying Frederick Meekins needs to take a class on logical argument before trying to write another book.

This author is trying to out-logic science without using any actual logic. Fanatical Christians will surely think it's amazing because it simply reinforces their opinions, but anyone on the fence about religion, or even a Christian looking to truly understand another's point of view will see right through this. The cheap shots taken at historical figures that made great contributions to science are a bit offensive, also.

Satan uses so much to knock down us Christian; finally someone has the courage to wipe the blood his face, and punch old shumty face square in the nose.

That last review must have been written by a one who is doomed. I was sure to get this book after reading that review. A review that that was typical and empty headed as one could count on from someone from that walk of life. And, ill go with five stars you poor lost soul.
