    Dr. Richard Carrier, world-renowned philosopher and historian, explains the four reasons he does not accept the Christian religion, describing four facts of the world that, had they been different, he would believe. Those four reasons are God's silence, God's inaction, the lack of evidence, and the way the universe looks exactly like a godless universe would, and not at all like a Christian universe would, even down to its very structure. Dr. Carrier addresses all the usual replies to these claims.

    Where does Why I Am Not a Christian: Four Conclusive Reasons to Reject the Faith rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Highly recommended! If you are looking for arguments to flumux your favorite apologist friend and send them scurrying to hide in agnosticism, there is a wealth of ammunition here.


    What about Richard Carrier’s performance did you like?

    Speaks clearly and was easy to understand.

    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.

    Michael says: "A man's spiritual journey out of religiousity"
    "A very good primer from one who knows the game."

    Would you listen to Deconverted again? Why?

    I may, simply because of the author's presentation. He is a skilled broadcaster which made this book a joy to listen too.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Seth Andrews


    What does Seth Andrews bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The authors perspective, and several asides not included in the print edition.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Probably not, just a bit too long, unless you are driving or flying cross country.


    Any additional comments?

    I am continually searching for skeptic literature in audio form from Audible. This was a fun listen, and it is always great to hear from others that are nearly at the same point in their journey, but there is not much here to further the atheist perspective or arguments beyond Hitchens, Dawkins, Harris, Stenger, Barker, Ingersol, and the other heavy weights of the genre. I recommend Seth's offering more for entertainment which can be a welcome diversion from the task of drafting your personal argument.
