What are some good atheist books to read? Topic: Good hypothesis ideas
June 17, 2019 / By Cherice
Question: i like to study up on things. i'm looking for anything from informational to funny, from offensive and aggressive to neutral. preferably if you offer one or two of the best one's you have personally read and why. thank you. ive read God is not Great / The Blind Watchmaker / 50 Reasons people give for believing in God / What's God got to do with It / Atheism: a brief introduction / The Atheist's Way / Life, Sex, and Ideas / Irreligion / and God: the failed hypothesis im just looking for some other good reads. by the way, for those who want to say ''the Bible'' - ive read it - not the whole Old Test. but over 700 pages from it and the new testament. and yes, some good things in there, but dont 'remind' me to it more ... unless you want to make me laugh. thank you everyone for reading, even the ones who make me laugh. thank you for the good list. i'm not stupid, but i sometimes have a hard time formulating my views and 'opinions' of the world and usually i read to put these feelings into expressed and concise phrasing - my belief that most things we say are regurgitated anyway -thanks though.

I would say don't just read books defined as 'Atheist' most of the better books just give the facts, it leaves you to make up your own mind which is the balanced way of looking at any history I am reading 'A History of God' by Karen Armstrong at the moment, she gives a well balanced narrative and most importantly here sources are easy to look up and cross reference keep reading, knowledge really is power where religion is concerned

My Side of the Mountain is a good book. It also has a sequel. But the first book is best. A Series of Unfortunate Events are also good (all of them so far). To Kill a Mockingbird is a classic. Anything by Mark Twain. Al Capone Does My Shirts, you'd probably like. The Outsiders, a classic but very emotional Holes (the book is so much better than the movie) From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, is another classic and a wonderful read. Zombie Blondes, you'd probably like too.

I agree that 'God isn't large' is more beneficial functional than 'The God myth', notwithstanding I a lot desire Dawkins to Hitchens in interviews. also, notwithstanding i'd hesitate to call some thing so short a 'e book', 'Why i'm no longer a Christian' by Bertrand Russell is amazingly insightful. also, notwithstanding it has no longer some thing to do with atheism, if, like a previous poster exhibits you do take an interest in communism, i'd study 'The Communist Manifesto' earlier 'Das Kapital'. a lot shorter and less demanding.

Dawkins or Hitchens but you really just need to observe and think critically to form your own opinions rather than adopt the ideas of others.

Try Nokosee: Rise of the New Seminole and its sequel Nokosee & Stormy: Love & Bullets. Both are contemporary "pre-dystopian" books where the world is on the tipping point of environmental collapse written from a 17-year-old girl's POV. Stormy Jones, the girl in the stories, is a tsundere character (as is Nokosee) that will stick with you for a long time. Cherry by Mary Karr. A memoir about teens, sex, drugs and growing up in rural Texas as told through the gritty, beautiful prose of one of America's best writers having taught at Harvard and currently teaching as the Peck Professor of English Literature at Syracuse University. It's a book every teen girl should read. If the opening paragraph doesn't do it for you, nothing will. On June 5, 2012, she released her first music CD as a co-writer with Rodney Crowel called "Kin." The Liar's Club by Mary Karr. Another moving memoir recounting her earlier years (you should probably read this one first and then Cherry). Jennifer Miller’s debut novel The Year of the Gadfly is a tale of prep school scandal and secret societies starring a very precocious 15-year-old young lady named Iris Dupont, whose best and only friend is the chain-smoking ghost of famed broadcast journalist Edward R. Murrow. The novel is compulsively readable and feels a little something like a cross between The Secret History and Gossip Girl, although with significantly more masturbation scenes than the former and more dusty tomes than the latter. As reviewed by Emily Temple, Flavorwire Dare Me by award-winning author Megan Abbott is the first person account of a high school senior cheerleader trying to come to grips with a suicide, lies, bitchiness, obsession, and friendship in a hard to put down psychological thriller that keeps you guessing until the end. I Never Promised You A Rose Garden by Joanne Greenberg. A critically appraised and touching semi-autobiographical story of a 16-year-old girl battling schizophrenia in a mental hospital. Also a 1977 movie starring Kathleen Quinlan. Carol Rifka Brunt's debut novel Tell the Wolves I'm Home. “A fresh yet nostalgic debut novel about a 1980s teen who loses a beloved uncle to AIDS but finds herself by befriending his grieving boyfriend. Filled with lost opportunities and second chances, the book delivers wisdom, innocence and originality with surprising sweetness. Its cast of waifs and strays will steal your heart as they show each other the way to redemption.” –Shelf Awareness. Listed as one of the ten-best debut novels of 2012 by Flavorwire. Mary Stewart Atwell's debut novel Wild Girls. "This daringly imagined, atmospheric, and original book is part coming-of-age story and part supernatural tale about teenage girls learning their own strength. Kate Riordan fears two things as she grows up in the small Appalachian town of Swan River: that she’ll be a frustrated townie forever, or that she’ll turn into one of the monstrous wild girls, fire starters who menace the community. Struggling to better her chances of escaping, Kate attends the posh Swan River Academy and finds herself divided between her hometown—and its dark history—and the realm of privilege and achievement at the Academy. Explosive friendships with Mason, a boy from the wrong side of town, and Willow, a wealthy and popular queen bee from school are slowly pulling her apart. Kate must decide who she is and where she belongs before she wakes up with cinders at her fingertips." Review by Flavorwire. The Adults by Alison Espach is the "defining novel for recovering debutantes from Connecticut. The novel is narrated by Emily, a high school freshman, who grows up in the privileged world of investment bank commuters and desperate housewives. Her padded life suddenly unravels when she wakes early one morning after a sleepover, and looks out her kitchen window to witness her neighbor’s suicide. Grace is found in the secret, illicit relationship that develops between Emily and her English teacher. Amidst a world of cheese platters and art auctions, their relationship simply surfaces as something real while everything else in Emily’s world just seems sterilized... (This is) white girl fiction.” by Geoff Max for Flavorwire. Hick by Andrea Portes. Teenage Luli is fed up with her drunken parents brawls and decides to leave Nebraska for Las Vegas. Along the way, a wily con artist and a sullen cowboy each try to lay claim to the conflicted girl's future. Also a 2011 movie starring Chloe Moretz and Blake Lively. The Death of Bees: A Novel by Lisa O'Donnell. Set in Glasgow, Scotland, this just released beautiful and darkly comic coming-of-age mystery surrounds 15-year-old Marnie and her little sister who know more than they want to reveal about the deaths of their parents who they buried in the backyard.
