Seth's voice keeps you interested. He know exactly how to keep an audience interested.
His voice, his excitement, his passion.
Anyone expensing doubts about their religion should listen to this. I never experienced hard core indoctrination and of the indoctrination I have, I have only done so at the hands of my grand and grand grand parents. I had become an atheist long before my 18th birthday this was long before Mr Dawkins, The God Delusion. I found this look at an early life of of someone in a strongly religious family and the De-conversion is truly FASCINATING.
On the over note Seth um can you narrate some over books ........ please?
Seth has a gift. He is a wonder narrator and brings an engaging, interesting, thought provoking audio book for the world to read. This book, although only four ish hours long, (I didn't want it to end).. is very informative and perfectly balanced, easy to listen too, and brings to light how The Thinking Atheist came to be. Religious people take heed: The internet is the new god. Your beliefs are eventually too fade, and science will, eventually, take over as the truth that it is. Seth Andrews is going to help change the world.
Do you believe? Did you believe? Do you have questions? This book is a firecracker in the middle of a sleeping flock, a shot in the arm of 'new' atheism. Accessible and comprehensive, entertaining and informative, fun and sincere, Seth's book yells 'Wake up and smell the cheese people'.
The litany of bible atrocities.
A lot of laughs, facepalms, sighs and 'amen's!
Can you 'read' this, comprehend it, study its references and still believe?
If the author can remove his blinkers, so can the rest of us. I am curious about those "born again" Christians and the Muslims, of which this book scarcely mentioned.
but his rant centers on The Bible, written by men, and Christianity, and organized religion, invented by men. Fine, but as is often overlooked, God may be something beyond the scope of our limited imagination and understanding, should there be a Supreme Mover Creator. To dismiss "God" is not deep thinking. To dismiss the probability of truth behind organized religion and The Bible is another. Call me agnostic.
Seth's story is very interesting to listen from perspective of someone living in a fairly liberal and atheistic country. That, and his voice is one of those you could listen to approximately forever regardless of topic. Great delivery.
As a recent "convert" from Christianity. It was very comforting to hear that someone else had the same doubts and fears. While listening to this book keep in mind that it IS Seth's biography so you'll hear a lot about the thinking atheist site and community (awesome source for info and community while struggling with losing your religion btw).
