Book Description

Aug. 4 2006
IS THERE REALLY A GOD?
OR DOES GOD EXIST ONLY IN OUR HEADS?
IS THE BIBLE TRULY GOD'S WORD?
OR IS IT A JUMBLE OF FANCIFUL MYTHS?

Atheist Universe details why God is unnecessary to explain the universe's diversity, organization and beauty. Using simple, straightforward logic, this book rebuts every argument that claims to "prove" God's existence.
A comprehensive primer for countering today's religious dogma, Atheist Universe addresses all the historical and scientific questions, including:

- What is atheism, and why is it so misunderstood?
- If God is a myth, then how did the universe appear?
- Without God, is there an objective "right" and "wrong"?
- What is the meaning of life without God?
- Is there evidence of Jesus' miracles and resurrection?
- Can atheists explain "near death" experiences and medical miracles?
- Can science and the Bible realistically be reconciled?
- What is the behind-the-scenes relationship between politics and religion?

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Man's Treasure Jan. 14 2006
Format:Paperback
Or should I say, "Another woman's treasure"?
I LOVED this book for precisely the same reason that the reviewer below did not -- because the book starts with the basics and provides the reader a comprehensive view of both science and theology. Perhaps the reviewer below has reached a state of omniscience, but for the rest of us mortals, I appreciated the author’s clear articulation of the issues without assuming that we were already experts in all branches of science. The whole purpose of the book can be summed up by saying that religion and science are NOT compatible, despite widespread beliefs and misinformed media stories to the contrary.
The book does indeed start at the beginning, but there is plenty of meat for any reader, regardless of his or her background. I have read perhaps a dozen books on the subject of atheism, and I personally prefer this title to any other. True, it is not so academic in tone as some other volumes, but, to me, this user-friendly style of communication is an asset rather than a liability. This book is a delight to read. I could not put it down. I especially liked the newly-added section rebutting "Intelligent Design."

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book Jan. 30 2006
By Dr Doom
Format:Paperback
Great Book. I disagree with the reviewer would claimed this book was too elementry for his liking; you should just read some insanely hard textbook. Mr. Mills essentially wrote this book as an accessible reference for atheism; not some lengthy Nitzche-like discussion. I knew some of the science information but he also brought up many points that I did not know or think of. I really enjoyed that each chapter was a work in itself; you can skip to something that sounds interesting and fill in the gaps later. The revised "Interview" chapter is very revealing and demonstrates, perhaps unknowingly, how to deal with basic asumptions a theist would test an atheist on.

5.0 out of 5 stars It has all been said by other customer reviewers! July 19 2004
Format:Hardcover
In a way, this review is superfluous because the other reviewers have really said it all. I merely want to add my voice to those who have written glowingly about this book. Mr. Mills has a fine talent as a clear and convincing author. I especially liked the scientific data included in the book in a manner that is very accessable to the layperson.

It does what the title says. An easy read. Much in question and answer format.

2.0 out of 5 stars Should have been titled "Atheism For Dummies" Nov. 23 2005
Format:Paperback
If you're a true-blue atheist, skip this book; there's nothing here you don't already know. If you're a bible-thumping American, you'll think the author is a spawn of the devil, so you'd better skip it too. Maybe - just maybe - if you're a fence-sitting Christian who doesn't read anything about science, or didn't finish high school, you'll learn something from this book. For me, page after page explaining 'evolution' or the 'big bang' made me feel like I was back in grade 9.
I was disappointed that most of the book is dedicated to refuting fundamentalist Christianity, which while a huge problem in the U.S. isn't really an issue in the rest of the civilized world.
