    Description

    Should we believe in God? In this brisk introduction to modern atheism, one of the world’s greatest science writers tells us why we shouldn’t.

    Richard Dawkins was 15 when he stopped believing in God.

    Deeply impressed by the beauty and complexity of living things, he’d felt certain they must have had a designer. Learning about evolution changed his mind. Now one of the world’s best and best-selling science communicators, Dawkins has given listeners, young and old, the same opportunity to rethink the big questions.

    In 12 fiercely funny, mind-expanding chapters, Dawkins explains how the natural world arose without a designer - the improbability and beauty of the "bottom-up programming" that engineers an embryo or a flock of starlings - and challenges head-on some of the most basic assumptions made by the world’s religions: Do you believe in God? Which one? Is the Bible a "Good Book"? Is adhering to a religion necessary, or even likely, to make people good to one another? Dissecting everything from Abraham’s abuse of Isaac to the construction of a snowflake, Outgrowing God is a concise, provocative guide to thinking for yourself.

    Includes a bonus PDF of photographs and charts.

    Advance praise for Outgrowing God

    "My son came home from his first day in the sixth grade with arms outstretched plaintively demanding to know: 'Have you ever heard of Jesus?' We burst out laughing. Maybe not our finest parenting moment, given that he was genuinely distraught. He felt that he had woken up one day to a world in which his peers were expressing beliefs he found frighteningly unreasonable. He began devouring books like The God Delusion, books that helped him formulate his own arguments and helped him stand his groundDawkins’s new book is special in the terrain of atheists’ pleas for humanism and rationalism precisely since it speaks to those most vulnerable to the coercive tactics of religion. As Dawkins himself says in the dedication, this book is for ‘all young people when they’re old enough to decide for themselves.’ It is also, I must add, for their parents." (Janna Levin, author of Black Hole Blues)

    "When someone is considering atheism I tell them to read the Bible first and then Dawkins. Outgrowing God - second only to the Bible!" (Penn Jillette, author of God, No!)

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

    Commentaires

    "With wit, logic, and his characteristic flair for expressing complex ideas with uncanny clarity, Richard Dawkins separates myth from reality in Outgrowing God. His book is more than a beginners’ guide to atheism: it is a primer that liberates us to see and explore the beauty of the Universe free of fables and fantasies." (Neil Shubin, paleontologist and author of Your Inner Fish)

    No new ground is covered.

    If you have read The God Delusion then you don't need to read this one.

    Not much new, but still good.

    If you've read a couple of Dawkins' books, you've likely heard most of what you'll hear here. That said, it's always a pleasure to listen to Dawkins read his work.

    King of the Atheists!

    Richard Dawkins is truly a marvel and has been for some time using logic, wit, and science to explain how the world works while doing his best to say it ways in which are easily understood. He has a wonderful reading voice and his arguments against the practicing religions make me whole. I was always looking for good explanations not to share in the belief systems of any religions and this book confirms how I have looked at the wonders of the world in the most practical sense. This is a must read for anyone who is doubting a confirmation for those who are sure. I would say it is for the religious as well but they would not dare to even question their belief system though they know not why they believe as they do. Dawkins has plenty to say for those as well.

    It takes courage!

    Alll believers of all faiths should have the courage to read this book from cover to cover and then at least question whether or not their belief makes any sense at all.

    Great Book!

    Dawkins' most readable book! I love his other books but some required me to reread several portions over and over again. This was a joy to listen to and understand.

    A reminder

    A reminder that the burden of maintaining religious beliefs is on the believer and not on the society at large. While individuals may maintain any belief they want, cultural and societal beliefs need to be governed by reason and science.

    Life changer

    Proof that the supernatural does not exist. A great scientific study. Belief in god or any other supernatural being or place is a hold over superstition from our caveman days.

    Great listen for any theist with a backbone

    A bit dense at times, but great for any theist with a back bone. I hoped to find more analysis on how religion holds us back from scientific achievement, and on how world leaders use the "mysterious ways" of deities to justify their amoral apathy toward the persistence of poverty world wide. It really is a waste human potential the way we go about things.
