Product Description

Product Description

Is religious belief reasonable?

UNREALigious tackles this question with clarity and scope that is rarely found within a genre so-often obscured by arrogance and spurious conclusions. Following a natural progression through the popular foundations of religious belief, UNREALigious presents an introduction to the nonreligious position. A position that is not defined by specific unified beliefs, but by objection to fundamental religious arguments. Interesting and relevant examples are used to provide the reader with a concise overview of essential and diverse topics within philosophy, science, and history.

From near death experiences to religious charity, from biblical errors to the genetic code, from plate tectonics to the work of Thomas Aquinas, UNREALigious offers a broad and interdisciplinary examination of a universally relevant question.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Read!!!! Jan. 31 2013
By DJB
Intelligent arguments supported by interesting history, anecdotes and facts. Unreligious examines common arguments for the value of religion in today’s society and attempts to remove misconceptions, misrepresentations, and nonsense from the arguments using logical and historical examples.

The book basically lays out major justifications for religion in individual chapters; Miracles happen so religion must exist, Religion is necessary for man to be good, Religion is inevitable etc. Each chapter examines the arguments for and against the justification and filters it down to a straightforward analysis.

I highly recommend it. It’s a really interesting read. I especially liked the chapter on the early history of Catholicism and the bible.

Unrealigious is an interesting and clearly articulated take on the religious position. I particularly enjoyed the first half of the book, which focuses on the potential truth of religion. The use of anecdotes and facts as well as the style of writing make what are sometimes difficult scientific concepts easy to understand, yet accurate and enjoyable to read. Practical examples are incorporated in a way that is straightforward and sometimes humorous.
This book is a clear, effective and entertaining take on religion. I highly recommend it!
