  • A Manual for Creating Atheists

    Story
    (225)

    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.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Almost the entire premise is based around him defining Aetheism in the way that Agnostics describe themselves which I think is faulty.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Peter Boghossian? Why or why not?

    No. He talks about being unbiased but when you hear his reading he preaches the idea of knowledge and reason while his voice is condescending and sneering towards people who don't immediately see things his way.


    What didn’t you like about Peter Boghossian’s performance?

    His voice and demeanor make him sound like an asshole. Listening to someone who sounds so biased is really difficult.


    Was A Manual for Creating Atheists worth the listening time?

    Not really, it was more of a manual for alienating people or polarizing those who don't share your same beliefs.
