  • "Something to offend everyone (or gr..."

    Story

    They're are two different schools of thought about a book like this. One, there was something in this book to offend almost everyone from each of the three Abrahamic religions (Christian, Jew, and Muslim). Or, two, by understanding the historical context and development over time of the major ideas about man's image of God and morality helps the listener better develop his own spiritual growth. Put me down in the second school.

    After listening to this book, I'll never look at the bible the same way again. For me, the bible has always been inaccessible since I didn't understand its proper historical context. This book has really motivated me to revisit the bible and subsequently I've started listening to "The Word of Promise", the bible read by actors and with dramatization and so far very listenable (and it only cost one credit!).

    The author is gifted at explaining generalities by first looking at specific events. One way of further understanding man's image of God is by first understanding the historical events surrounding the times the religious documents were first written.

    The author quotes one of the early religious founders as saying that "God loved man very much by giving him an earth that was suited for man". The author would say that man was suited for earth so well because he evolved into this environment. From that point of view, man's image of God has also changed over time.

    One note about the reader. Arthur Morey (the reader) is one of my favorite readers and he's one of the few readers who I would buy the book just because he's the reader. As usual, he doesn't disappoint in his reading and he makes me feel like I'm listening to an old friend.

    In this sweeping narrative, which takes us from the Stone Age to the Information Age, Robert Wright unveils an astonishing discovery: there is a hidden pattern that the great monotheistic faiths have followed as they have evolved. Through the prisms of archeology, theology, and evolutionary psychology, Wright's findings overturn basic assumptions about Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and are sure to cause controversy.

    Overall

    Story

    You don't need to want to convert others into atheism to enjoy this book. A theist would not be turned off while listening to this book. The author is fairly non-threatening in his presentation.

    I usually don't listen to every word when I'm listening to an Audible book, because sometimes my mind will wonder. This book was different. I listened to every word from the author since he writes simple sentences and reads his own work better than a professional could have and says something I was really interested in, namely how the scientific process works.

    Faith, is best thought of as "pretending to know something you don't know". Facts need support beyond "I just believe" and such people who believe such things belong at the child's table not the adult's table. He warns of falling for the trap of 'having faith" that the light will turn on when you turn the light switch on. You really have knowledge in that situation not faith. It's part of the 'word play' of Wittgenstein, but it is a way to confuse the word faith in the non believer.

    The author explains what critical reasoning is and shows how it is a foundation to philosophical thought, but at the same time the listener will realize how the Socratic method is the foundation for the scientific process (he doesn't explicitly state this, but as I was listening to every word it became obvious).

    Even if you don't want to convert others to be an Atheist, the book is still valuable. It will teach you about critical reasoning and how to learn about your proper place in the universe just a little bit better.

    For thousands of years, the faithful have honed proselytizing strategies and talked people into believing the truth of one holy book or another. Indeed, the faithful often view converting others as an obligation of their faith - and are trained from an early age to spread their unique brand of religion. The result is a world broken in large part by unquestioned faith. As an urgently needed counter to this tried-and-true tradition of religious evangelism, this audiobook offers the first-ever guide not for talking people into faith - but for talking them out of it.

  • "A non-theist handbook"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    The book acts as an immunization against those who are infected with the religious virus. The author is never in your face and is mostly about giving the non-theist a way to think and understand the thinking behind the theist believers. I found this book a much better listen than Sam Harris' book, "The End of Faith". They cover similar material, but I found better arguments (through the metaphor of the virus) in this book.

    The author even has a section on how to talk with religious people if you must (okay, the author doesn't say 'must', that's not his style at all). For example, if a believer says he'll be praying about you, just reply and say 'thanks, I'll be thinking about you". A non-confrontational approach which doesn't compromise your belief system is always preferable to pointless arguments.

    The author reads his own book. He does a good job. He's not a great reader, but by having the author read his own book, I the listener get a better interpretation of the book.

    For thousands of years, religion has woven its way through societies and people as if it were part and parcel to that society or person. In large measure it was left unexplained and unchallenged, it simply existed. Those who attempted to challenge and expose religion were often persecuted, excommunicated, shunned, or even executed. It could be fatal to explain that which the church, priest, or imam said was unexplainable. Before the germ, viral, and parasite theory of disease, physicians had no tools to understand disease and its propagation.

    "Outstanding work, & delivery"

    Overall

    Story
    What did you love best about Flipside?

    I have read Michael Newton's books (listened to them actually) and have researched related areas my entire life, after having lost a sister in a childhood car accident dreamed about beforehand. This work by Richard Martini was the clincher for me to seek out a trained life between lives hypnotherapist. As a trained scientist, I tend to look carefully at independent confirmation of important but novel findings, and Richard has sought that out like a good documentarian or journalist also must. The fact that Richard already has an established & successful public career was key, as he likely only stands to loose some credibility by publishing these findings in a culture generally not inclined to take such subjects seriously. This area likely leads to one healing from poor choices/experiences, and taking on more personal responsibility. While I have not quite finished listening to his book (which I am very glad he narrated himself, the authenticity comes through even more in his personal recounting) I feel compelled to write this so that others who are on the fence about choosing this DO SO. Not only that, this work itself is excellent, engaging, and masterfully woven together. I feel sorry for people who have not had personal experiences that help them move beyond knee jerk cynical dismissal of such profound subject matter--though I imagine I could have been like that in previous lifetimes myself ;-)


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The narrator. And no, I did not find this to be a narcissistic work, as a certain review at amazon.com expressed. On the contrary, I found it to be about as far from that as one can get and still express a splendid personality.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The entire work. As an adjunct college professor teaching math and sustainability, I wish more folks would tune into this avenue of personal development, as I suspect it would help them in many other areas of their lives...


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It did make me laugh and cry, as well as feel other rich emotions, because it rang true to me on subject matter that counts most.


    Any additional comments?

    I only hope that more people in our world come across & explore this work, while we still have a decent shot at healing our modern psychoses--ones that are presently at the root of much inflicted suffering on ourselves and other living beings on this particular sphere. However, this work has also given me some consolation about what from a purely physical perspective can lead many (who are paying attention) to depression about what is going on. This work has lifted my spirits, once again, and filled me with an inner sense of luminosity that is not easily dimmed by our human failings.

    I actually didn't think I would enjoy it as much as I am, when I listened to the narration, I was not pleased with the voice. I thought it dry and unenthusiastic. But 10 hours in, I can say Mr. Stewart was an excellent choice. His pacing is excellent, his enunciation clear.

    The Course can be daunting, and I truly believe being able to listen as well as read will be helpful to any serious Course student.

She remembered the night Solomon had visited her in her bedroom after her brother and his friend had shot him, but she hadn't really thought about him being a ghost that night; she'd just been so glad to see her beloved feathered friend.

Ehrman explores how an apocalyptic prophet from the backwaters of rural Galilee crucified for crimes against the state came to be thought of as equal with the one God Almighty Creator of all things. Ehrman sketches Jesus's transformation from a human prophet to the Son of God exalted to divine status at his resurrection. Only when some of Jesus's followers had visions of him after his death - alive again - did anyone come to think that he, the prophet from Galilee, had become God.

    The theme of this four-day retreat: "It's Always Now" The Now is inseparable from who you are at the deepest level. It is the prerequisite of Being. As you listen to the words on this tape, you participate in the retreat. To "retreat" means to step back - not only from the outer world, but also from the world in your head, the thinking mind. Allow the sound of the words to take you beyond words and beyond sound to the stillness within.

    Consisting of fewer than 200 verses written in an obscure if not impenetrable language and style, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra is today extolled by the yoga establishment as a perennial classic and guide to yoga practice. As David Gordon White demonstrates in this groundbreaking study, both of these assumptions are incorrect. Virtually forgotten in India for hundreds of years and maligned when it was first discovered in the West, the Yoga Sutra has been elevated to its present iconic status.

    The Fragrance of the Mystical Rose are those out-of-body experiences which are beyond words and lie only within the energetic spheres of knowledge. The revelation of the Celestial Mysteries is the admittance of such spheres into words and understanding. The Enclosed Garden of God are the initiations and rites of passage within which the mysteries of God's mercy become energetically embodied within the soul... and the energetic potential becomes realized as the old man transforms into the new.

    God Is Disappointed in You is for people who would like to read the Bible...if it would just cut to the chase. Stripped of its arcane language and interminable passages, every book of the Bible is condensed down to its core message, in no more than a few pages each. Written by Mark Russell with cartoons by New Yorker cartoonist Shannon Wheeler, God Is Disappointed in You is a frequently hilarious, often shocking, but always accurate retelling of the Bible, including the parts selectively left out by Sunday School teachers.
