In the 21st century, religion is making a comeback, bringing in its wake extremism of all kinds, from Christian anti-abortion campaigns to suicide bombers claiming the righteousness of Islam. Michel Onfray's response to the threat of a post-modern theocracy is to lay down the principles of an authentic atheism.

Oh wow, dudes, hasn't this author heard of that big book written by those Jewish guys? Or that other book written by those Arab guys? Or that stuff written by those guys in that wacko town on the Gulf Coast in Florida, the Church of Scientificology? Or those Wall Street guys who wrote the book of TED? Talking snakes, anyone?

Amazingly written, a perfect book that hits home why atheists don't believe in religion. A great book to refer to friends and family that might have a hard time with your atheist beliefs.

Many tidbits of religious history with a plethora of anti-religious rants scattered throughout. Generally well written, but ultimately lacks the overall "cement" that would bind it into a true manifesto. It is, however, well worth the read.

AWESOME READ! Learned many new things and just couldn't put the book down. Jesus, what a concept! The coffee is strong and black! No sugar or creamers here! Great!
