Every Atheist Needs: American Gods

Mad Sweeney

I was pregnant with my son, living in the Mayan Riviera when I read American Gods by Neil Gaiman. The majority of the book was read laying in the talcum sand of the beach at the end of Calle 38, Playa Del Carmen. There, against the background noise of turquoise waves crashing, I pondered more

Every Atheist Parent Needs: The I Survived Book Series

I Survived book series

It was way too late for me when I finally realized how much I loved history. It’d always been portrayed by my teachers with such lacklustre enthusiasm, picking out only the most dull and mundane points that could no sooner draw me in than Katy Perry could say something she thought up herself. My Dad

Every Atheist Needs: The Missionary Position

The Missionary Position - Christopher Hitchens

I know what you filthy heathens thought I meant, but if you’d get your sinful minds out of the gutter for two seconds, I’d like to talk about the book from the very missed, Mr. Christopher Hitchens about Mother Teresa. As you all know, Hitch had some very, very strong feelings towards the little sister

Every Atheist Needs: Extraordinary Popular Delusions And The Madness Of Crowds

Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds

Back in my hometown every summer, they host night markets. It was one of the many things the influx of immigrants from Asia brought us. There were stalls with dim sum and stalls with meat on sticks, you could get bubble tea and green tea ice cream cones, spiraled potatoes on sticks. The music, the smell,

Every Atheist Needs: Atheist Tiki Hour

Atheist Tiki Hour

I’ve raved before about works by Logospilgrim and I cannot rave about this one enough, either. This is a quick read (although it took me what felt like a millennia because I have had zero time to sit and read), but it’s going to leave you feeling great. Absolutely unique, this book has humour, compassion, moving

Every Atheist Needs: Grace Without God

Katherine Ozment: Grace Without God

As someone who’s never had a religion, I’ve never felt I was missing anything that people insist religion offers. Community, awe, purpose, meaning, tradition and the rest of the endless list religious people are sure can only be cultivated from deep faith and devotion to a supernatural God, are all things I have never felt I

Atheists Deny Themselves This One Question?

Richard Dawkins: One of the things wrong with religion...

I was reading The God Delusion the other day. Yes, much to everyone’s utter shock and awe, I had never read it before just recently. What can I say? I’ve been an atheist all my life in a secular land… I’ve never needed arguments against God. As Godless Mom, though, I now feel more reason

Every Atheist Needs: Fighting God

David Silverman - Fighting God

My family is awesome. I’ve always known this, but every once in a while, they go out of their way to prove it to me again and I am taken aback by it. This Christmas was one such time. The stack of books they gifted me included 5 Dawkins titles and David Silverman’s new book,
