Publisher Comments:

Is there really a God? Or does God exist only in our heads? Is the Bible truly God's Word, or a jumble of fanciful myths? This book is your front-row ticket to mankind's most enthralling debate. An atheist for thirty years, David Mills argues that God is unnecessary to explain the universe and life's diversity, organization and beauty. This unique and captivating book rebuts every argument ever offered to prove God's existence and the Bible's credibility - arguments from logic, common sense, Christian apologetics, philosophy, ethics, history, and up-to-the-minute science. It's all here for you in one richly entertaining, comprehensive, and easy-to-read volume. Few other books provide such spellbinding inquiry and arrive at such a controversial and well-documented conclusion. The publication of David's work on the dangers and disadvantages of devout religiosity will be very useful for anyone with harmful religious beliefs. Honest, frank, and right to the point! I found it very fine reading. - Albert Ellis, Ph.D., father of modern psychotherapy, author of A Guide to Rational Living and 53 other books. I like this material very much. David Mills says very ably and clearly all that needs to be said. - Ashley Montagu, Ph.D., Harvard and Princeton anthropologist, author of The Elephant Man. (Commenting on Chapter 3)

What's on the Cover? Introduction: Is This Book an Outrage? Chapter 1: Fifty Famous People Who Criticized Religion Chapter 2: Interview with an Atheist

Synopsis:

Clear, concise, and persuasive, Atheist Universe details exactly why God is unnecessary to explain the universe and life's diversity, organization, and beauty. The author thoroughly rebuts every argument that claims to "prove" God's existence — arguments based on logic, common sense, philosophy, ethics, history and science.

Atheist Universe avoids the esoteric language and logic used by philosophers and presents its scientific evidence in simple lay terms, making it a richly entertaining and easy-to-read introduction to atheism. A comprehensive primer, it addresses all the historical and scientific questions, including: Is there proof that God does not exist? What evidence is there of Jesus's resurrection? Can creation science reconcile scripture with the latest scientific discoveries?

Atheist Universe also answers ethical issues such as: What is the meaning of life without God? It's a spellbinding inquiry that ultimately arrives at a controversial and well-documented conclusion.

The clearest, most comprehensible, explanation of evolution for the non-scientificly trained reader. A terrific book.
