    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.

    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.

    Sam Sheridan has been an amateur boxer, mixed martial arts fighter, professional wilderness firefighter, EMT, sailor, and cowboy, and has worked in construction at the South Pole. If he isn't ready for the apocalypse, we're all in a lot of trouble. But when Sam had his son and settled down, he was beset with nightmares about being unable to protect him. Sam decided to face his fears head-on, embarking on a quest to gain as many skills as possible that might come in handy should the world as we know it end....

    I wasn't really sure why I actually bought this book in the beginning. Maybe it was on my suggested list? I really got into it quickly , and I realized that I could of written this book! This author and I have a very similar view and life experience. It is a good refresher for some folks, and an eye opener for a lot of folks I imagine. Good stuff. Brings up a lot of good points on how to be prepared, not in a crazy "prepper " way, but an average, everyday American doing little things to be ready when the eventual SHTF happens.

    Because They Hate is a political wake-up call. Brigitte Gabriel, who lost her childhood to militant Islam, warns that the United States is threatened by fundamentalist Islamic theology in the same way that Lebanon was - that radical Islam will stop at nothing short of domination of all non-Muslim countries. Fiercely articulate and committed, Gabriel both tells her own story and outlines the history, social movements, and religious divisions that have led to this critical historical conflict.

    Troy says: "eye-opening"
    "Brigitte is saying "I told you so" right now."

    The scary thing about this book is that it was written in 2007. It is now 2014, and what is taking up almost every minute of every news channel in the US, on a daily bases......... It's happening., and America needs to wake up NOW.

    Why evolution is more than just a theory: it is a fact. In all the current highly publicized debates about creationism and its descendant "intelligent design", there is an element of the controversy that is rarely mentioned: the evidence, the empirical truth of evolution by natural selection.

    Story

    This is a great book simply explaining evolution. It has a lot less "Religion Bashing" than I thought it would. Very little of that in fact. The good thing about that is that this would be a good listen (Gift) for the indoctrinated religious person who may have some hope of jumping on the evolution train. Come on it's a great ride! Dr. Coyne goes into GREAT detail for countless animal species which I found fascinating. Fascinating read highly recommended, especially for FOX News watchers. One nit-pick.... there are several illustrations that are referenced that the audio book reader cannot access. I wish Audible had them available for download too like on some other books.

    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.

    Always seeking to be an obedient Priesthood girl, in her teens Rebecca Musser became the nineteenth wife of her people's prophet: 85-year-old Rulon Jeffs. Finally sickened by the abuse she suffered and saw around her, she pulled off a daring escape and sought to build a new life and family.

    I have listened to many audio books in the past several years, approaching 100 or so, and I must say, this one is close to the top of my favorites. Rebecca Musser is an AMAZING narrator. I am not sure what she is doing nowadays but she could earn a living at Audible.com. Her voice is so articulate and smooth and full of measured emotion. The story of the FLDS itself for me was not a complete surprise, as I have studied religion for over 20 years. (Also been an atheist for over 40.) I spent some time in southern Utah many many years ago and got a taste of what went on there via a super-secret girlfriend. The "leaders" of these people are very demented, in fact, the FLDS is similar to the fundamentalist Muslims in the way they brainwash their young and completely control their women. It is very sad indeed. It is amazing to me how these sects can continue to exist in this country. I can only hope that more of these young girls can escape this hell on Earth they live in. Rebecca Musser is no doubt a hero. Her bravery and tenacity are examples for others to follow. . A champion of the oppressed indeed. I would love to meet her one day just to shake her hand.

  • Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power

    Rachel Maddow's Drift argues that we've drifted away from America's original ideals and become a nation weirdly at peace with perpetual war, with all the financial and human costs that entails. Sensible yet provocative, dead serious yet seriously funny, Drift will reinvigorate a "loud and jangly" political debate about how, when, and where to apply America's strength and power - and who gets to make those decisions.

    Fantastic! Rachel Maddow is a wonderful narrator, (I never watched her show but am going to start now). An insiders look at recent military history, coverups, insider politics, military blunders, private contractors, and the US nuclear weapon arsonal. Literally listened to it in one day. Couldn't "put it down". Thanks for a great , eye opening book Rachel.

    I suppose perhaps this kind of thing helps some people go to sleep, perhaps the same kind of people that can be "hypnotized" on stage at the state fair too. A MUCH better book to put you to sleep is "Atlas Shrugged"., that's what I'm using now, plus it's 60 hours long.

    From the larger, louder half of the world-famous magic duo Penn & Teller comes a scathingly funny reinterpretation of The Ten Commandments. They are The Penn Commandments, and they reveal one outrageous and opinionated atheist’s experience in the world.

    This was my first book I download with my new "Audible.com" account. I watch Penn on Youtube all the time, and I figured I could do the right thing and buy his book finally. I was SOOOOO excited that it was done in Penn's voice. That made this such a great experiance. I greatly enjoyed this book. It actually isn't all about religion, but it is filled with fantastic stories from Penn's life, told from his perspective religously, politically, morally, ect... Being in his voice was a sure plus.. I am forever a fan and an atheist for life. In fact, I just told my wife our next trip is going to be at the Rio to see his show. I can't wait! Thanks Penn!
