Description

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.

A logical and well researched

Vox does a great job of deconstructing the new atheists and their anti-theist arguments. He uses logical point by point analysis whilst pointing out the myriad number of mistakes that Harris, Dawkins and Hitchins are more than quilty of. Of course any writer that can insert numerous references from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy whilst critiquing atheists is an added bonus.

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.

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!

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.

perception shattering.

Everything you've been told is a lie, but fear not, Vox eloquently and effectively reveals the truth. Days Vult! God is Great!

This book was a waste of my time and a credit.

This dude is a bigot. He claims that Christians own morality and Atheists are moral parasites. His exact words. He then ticks off a bunch of nonsense arguments against Christianity. Of course, he doesn't use the clincher. That we know that all life came from a common ancestor and that humans and their souls weren't poofed into existence. There is zero proof of a soul and afterlife. If humans have souls and go to an afterlife, why not all life? Because it doesn't and they don't. He claims to be pro-science but he denies the cornerstone of Biology. Yes, he is an Evolution Denier. And a hypocrite.

totally debunks most prominent atheist talking pts

Love this book. This book does not prove God is real. It shatters the prominent atheist arguments against God and religion. If you are someone that finds themselves intrigued by what Sam Harris says, reading this will help you see through the manipulative talk and un-muddy the waters where he wades. It opened my eyes to the intentional pro atheist trickery that is out there.

weird flex

this unholy trinity could be challenged philosophically... but that isn't what happens here. at all. it is more of a weird flex, attempting to demonstrate the intellectual superiority of the author

If you can endure the pedantic, arrogant style, you will learn how a religious person rationalizes her fantastic believes

The book aims to show how some famous militant atheists distort, misunderstand, or simply bend the historical facts to discredit religiosity. Fair enough, I thought. But the text is most of the time just a rant that attacks the other side at the personal level. In the best case, the author selectively reinterprets history to hide how religion has been part of the toolkit of powerful elites to submit the lower classes and to motivate wars and violence. I did not learn much with this book, and reckon that there are better ways to spend the 9hours that the book lasts.
