A lifelong unbeliever finds no reason to change his mind.

Are there any logical reasons to believe in God? Mathematician and bestselling author John Allen Paulos thinks not. In Irreligion he presents the case for his own worldview, organizing his book into twelve chapters that refute the twelve arguments most often put forward for believing in God’s existence. The latter arguments, Paulos relates in his characteristically lighthearted style, “range from what might be called golden oldies to those with a more contemporary beat. On the playlist are the first-cause argument, the argument from design, the ontological argument, arguments from faith and biblical codes, the argument from the anthropic principle, the moral universality argument, and others.” Interspersed among his twelve counterarguments are remarks on a variety of irreligious themes, ranging from the nature of miracles and creationist probability to cognitive illusions and prudential wagers. Special attention is paid to topics, arguments, and questions that spring from his incredulity “not only about religion but also about others’ credulity.”

    " Paulos clearly lays out the old arguments and equally clearly tears them apart. Finally, I've got a good description of the arguments. "

    " So much funnier than I ever would have expected. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Jeffrey | 2/2/2014

    " An amusing little book, much less confrontational than many other current pro-atheist books these days, but perhaps more devastating, with clearly stated and logical arguments with a good dose of humor and common sense. It's not that any of his deconstructions of various pro-god arguments are new, so much as given more clearly and pleasantly than anywhere else I've seen "

    " A brief summary of things have been brought up a long time ago. All good, but nothing new. "
