Publisher's Summary

Atheism Explained explores the claims made both for and against the existence of God. On the pro side: that the wonders of the world can only be explained by an intelligent creator; that the universe had to start somewhere; telepathy, out-of-body experiences, and other paranormal phenomena demonstrate the existence of a spirit world; and that those who experience God directly provide evidence as real as any physical finding. After disputing these arguments through calm, careful criticism, author David Ramsay Steele presents the reasons why God cannot exist: monstrous, appalling evils; the impossibility of omniscience; and the senseless concept that God is a thinking mind without a brain. He also explores controversial topics such as intelligent design, the power of prayer, religion without God, and whether a belief in God makes people happier and healthier. Steele's rational, easy to understand prose helps listeners form their own conclusions about this eternally thorny topic.

What the Critics Say

"A clear, concise, complete, and convincing presentation of the case for atheism." (Victor J. Stenger, author of God: The Failed Hypothesis)

"Atheism Explained is a gem. It is clear, informative, well-argued, provocative, often witty, and unfailingly interesting." (Jeremy Shearmur, author of The Political Thought of Karl Popper)

"Atheism Explained is a much better defense of atheism than the recent works by Dawkins and Hitchens." (James Sadowsky, S.J., Professor of Philosophy, Fordham University)
