BOOK REVIEW: The Quotable Atheist: Ammunition for Non-Believers, Political Junkies, Gadflies, and Those Generally Hell-Bound
This book is awesome, and you will be highly enlightened by what thinkers of today and in the past have said regarding religion/God/science, etc.
WARNING: This book is only for the open-minded!
Here is one of many of the gems I found in this book of 333 pages and over 1,200 quotes!
You don’t think religion is dangerous? Consider this:
“Every fatih has its share of literalists … But only within Islam is literalism fast becoming mainstream. We Muslims, even here in the West, are routinely raised to believe that the Koran is the final and therefore perfect manifesto of God’s will … This is dangerous, because when abuse happens under the banner of my faith as it is today, most Muslims have no clue how to debate, dissent, revise or reform … because we have never been introduced to the possibility, let alone the virtue, of asking questions …” Irshad Manji (1968- )
Take out the word Muslim, and insert the name of any other religion.
