Publisher's Summary

On one side of the argument is a collection of godless academics with doctorates from the finest universities in England, France, and the United States. On the other is Irrational Atheist author Vox Day, armed with nothing more than historical and statistical facts. Presenting a compelling argument (but not for the side one might expect), Day strips away the pseudo-scientific pretentions of New Atheism with his intelligent application of logic, history, military science, political economy, and well-documented research. The arguments of Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens, Daniel Dennett, and Michel Onfray are all methodically exposed and discredited as Day provides extensive evidence proving, among other things, that:

  • More than 93 percent of all the wars in human history had no relation to religion
  • The Spanish Inquisition had no jurisdiction over professing Jews, Muslims, or atheists, and executed fewer people on an annual basis than the state of Texas
  • Atheists are almost four times more likely to be imprisoned than Christians
  • "Red" state crime is primarily in "blue" counties
  • Sexually abused girls are 55 times more likely to commit suicide than girls raised Catholic

In the twentieth century, atheistic regimes killed three times more people in peacetime than those killed in all the wars and individual crimes combined. The Irrational Atheist provides the rational thinker with empirical proof that atheism's claims against religion are unfounded in logic, fact, and science.

Do not give this author your money

For content this book should get zero stars. Unfortunately that is impossible with Audible's rating system. If the consumer is looking for anything close to a legitimate, rational, thoughtful, and useful argument against the "Four Horsemen", look elsewhere. The most valuable information presented is the authors admission that he is not a professional writer/researcher.

This book is nothing more than a compilation of quote mining, misrepresentation, and poorly concealed slander of the Dawkins, Harris, and Hitches; or is it Dawkins, Harris, and Dennett? Vox Day doesn't seem to know either. Any reader familiar with the works of these men will immediately see through the falsehoods presented in this pathetic attempt to beat the previously mentioned four at their own game. To put it bluntly, the only readers who will consider this book worth while are those who already despise them.

I purchased this title hoping to find the first reasonable rebuttal to Dawkins, Harris, and Hitchens/Dennett. I am even more disappointing than when I read Ravi Zacharias' The End of Reason. At least Zacharias, while presenting relentlessly weak arguments, did not out right slander and quote mine.

Unfortunately, a portion of my own roughly $13.00 has already gone to Vox Day. If you, like me, are searching for intelligent intellectual discussion on these issues please look elsewhere before making the same mistake.

Awesome

Great book. Should be read by anyone who found Harris and hitch lacking. Not to try to convince you of God. Just plugging holes in the philosophy of pop atheism.

Atheism is presented as incomplete and weak thought

Engaging and well presented. Easy to follow and gives point by point refutations of popular atheists writings.

Enlighten!

This is very good book that offers logical stand point against the world view of Atheism. The content itself is logically challenging however the way Vox Day deliver his thoughts with witty funny way really helps me to understand what he is saying.

Good reading, recommended!
