"Inside the Atheist Mind: Unmasking the Religion of Those Who Say There Is No God" [View all]

https://www.amazon.com/Inside-Atheist-Mind-Unmasking-Religion/dp/0718080564

USA Today bestselling author Anthony DeStefano is tired of playing nice. After years of responding patiently and agreeably to the pseudo-intellectual arguments and tactics of todayís militant atheists, heís had enough. In this entertaining, no-holds-barred retort to atheism and its proponents, DeStefano reveals the intellectual bankruptcy at atheismís core and equips believers to respond to its hollow arguments.

A witty and devastating takedown of the "new atheist" position, Inside the Atheist Mind systematically debunks the theories of Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris, and others, revealing how inconsistent, illogical, and frankly ludicrous their conclusions truly are. Poking fun at atheists in a clever and intelligent way, DeStefano demonstrates just how full of holes the new atheism is and reveals that it is actually a "religion" of its own, complete with a creed, a set of commandments and sacraments, and a rigid moral code with rewards and punishments. More than that, DeStefano exposes that atheism is itself a "superstition" of the worst kind.

Using irony and a healthy dose of playful sarcasm, Inside the Atheist Mind lampoons, teases, and deflates the atheist position, unmasking it for what it is--an empty, intellectually barren philosophy, devoid of any logic and common sense.


pseudo-intellectual arguments ... Like "It must be true because the Bible says so."

intellectual bankruptcy ... Like not being able to explain how many gods there are, who they are, what they want, how to properly worship them.

revealing how inconsistent, illogical, and frankly ludicrous their conclusions are ... Like "fuck evidence, we have faith."

how full of holes the new atheism is ... With commandments that expressly forbid adherents from taking too close a look, like "do not test God, his ways are unknowable, shut up and obey."

that it is actually a "religion" of its own ... a religion without an animistic cosmology, without divine teachings, without holy books, without the concept of holiness and without clergy.

More than that, DeStefano exposes that atheism is itself a "superstition" of the worst kind. ... Fun Fact: During the Renaissance there was a papal witchhunter (forgot his name) who tried to prove via experiment that Catholicism is verifiably correct and that fringe christian beliefs are empty superstition.

an empty, intellectually barren philosophy, devoid of any logic and common sense ... At least atheism doesn't give the same two answers no matter what the question is: It's either "God did it" or "stop asking questions and believe".
