We can’t avoid the persistent questions about the meaning of life—and the nature of reality. But science is the only means of answering them. So declares philosopher Alex Rosenberg in this bracing, surprisingly sanguine take on a world without god. The science that makes us nonbelievers, he demonstrates, tells us the nature of reality, the purpose of everything, the difference between right and wrong, how the mind works, even the direction of human history.

“A tough test of the intellectual mettle of the armchair atheists and those teetering between faith and committing to life without it.” (Boston Globe)
No to author. OK with narrator but seemed there were a number of mispronounced words.
Found some of it confusing and of course all of gods children (according to most thought leaders of this movement) are Democrats. They just can't help giving grief to Thatcher and Republicans. Author should have checked out how much the average Brit's life improved under this doltish and unenlightened regime.
He also misstates and misrepresents University of Chicago economics. Friedman really is saying the market should decide because these cumulative decisions represent the optimal way for more and more humans to gain a better life. Angels in the government who launder our money and take a cut may not be as angelic as they purport as their pure motives.
Yes but less than I'd hoped.
It's possible religion is bred into us. Most of the guys who write this stuff talk about how goofy religion can be. True enough. Seemingly, none of them ever seem to question man made global warming or cooling or whatever they now call it as the biggest hoax since Saul had heat stroke on the road to Damascus and became Paul.
