If God does not exist, then what does? Is there good and evil, and should we care? How do we know what's true anyway? And can we make any sense of this universe, or our own lives? Sense and Goodness Without God answers these questions in lavish detail, without complex jargon. Arguing that there is only a physical, natural world without gods or spirits, noted historian and philosopher Richard Carrier presents and defends a complete worldview, one in which we can live a life of love, meaning, and joy.

What did you love best about Sense and Goodness Without God?

Plain language and the truth

What did you like best about this story?

I could relate my own life journey to that of Richard C. even thou I am 80 years old.

What about Richard Carrier’s performance did you like?

He is truthful and honest and credits science and history for his conclusions.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I related my own life experience to his story and with a few years difference my story would be very similar.

Any additional comments?

I plan to buy this book for each of my children and grand children plus the great grand children. Plus this book will be my gift to everyone I know. Richard should hook up with Neal DeGrace Tyson as both of them have the gift to explain to the average person.
