Deconverted: A Journey from Religion to Reason

( 4 )

Overview

"...and then Noah loaded the dinosaurs onto the ark." Assertions like these seem comical until you realize that many Christian parents aren't kidding when they teach them to their children as facts. Every day, impressionable young minds are conditioned to blindly accept wild biblical tales of floating zoos, talking shrubbery, 900-year-old humans, the undead, curses, levitation, demon/human hybrids and men who obtain super-human strength from the length of their hair.

Allegiance to these teachings is expected, ...

Overview

"...and then Noah loaded the dinosaurs onto the ark." Assertions like these seem comical until you realize that many Christian parents aren't kidding when they teach them to their children as facts. Every day, impressionable young minds are conditioned to blindly accept wild biblical tales of floating zoos, talking shrubbery, 900-year-old humans, the undead, curses, levitation, demon/human hybrids and men who obtain super-human strength from the length of their hair.

Allegiance to these teachings is expected, often demanded. Curiosity is muted. Doubt is frowned upon as a sin. And for those who dare to raise a dissenting hand, the threat of Hell looms ominously.

A former religious radio host raised in the cradle of Christianity, Seth Andrews battled his own doubts for many years. His attempts to reconcile faith and the facts led him to a conclusion previously unthinkable, and this once-true believer ultimately became the founder of one of the most popular atheist communities on the internet.

    Seth Andrews is a great storyteller, and this book is no exception.  While Dawkins and Hitchens are more about the debate, Andrews is more about the experience.  He chronicles his "coming out" at a very personal level. He's relatable, and this is a great read for anyone who has gone through the atheism coming out, is thinking abut it, or has a family member who has come out as a nonbeliever.  His book helps you understand the process through their eyes.

    The man behind the funny videos

    The best parts are when the author relates his personal experiences, but those who have read the works of Dawkins, Hitchens, etc. won't find too much new info. For those who haven't, this is a really good primer on refuting religious nonsense.

    Read This Book!

    Anyone making or who has made the journey from faith to reason will find comfort in this book. It is easy to read and Seth is not an ass like Dawkins (even though I love Dawkins!).
