Theologians use the Watchmaker argument to prove the existence of God. This article uses both logic and humor to expose what a bad analogy this is.

• Il 75% degli italiani si definisce “cristiano”<br />• Il 10% degli italiani si definisce “ateo” o “agnostico”<br />• Il 10% degli italiani si definisce “spirituale ma non religioso”<br />La missione della chiesa in una società sempre più multiculturale è quella di <b>rendere l’Evangelo accessibile a tutti</b>. Le persone hanno bisogno di ricevere il messaggio di Cristo in una forma che<br />faccia prendere vita a questo annuncio. Se Gesù, ricorda l’autore, ha dato un volto e un nome all’amore, noi Suoi figli siamo chiamati a fare altrettanto.<br />Questo libro non vuole essere un freddo “manuale di evangelizzazione” ma un’ampia e preziosa raccolta di spunti da usare a livello individuale, in piccoli gruppi e nelle nostre comunità. L’obiettivo è uno solo: raggiungere in maniera efficace tutti quelli che hanno bisogno di scoprire chi sia davvero Gesù.

<DIV><I>The Seduction of Religion</I> offers an illuminating and provocative guide to the religions of the world, focusing on the irrationality of religious beliefs. The point of this book is not to preach atheism so much as it is to encourage its readers to reflect more carefully on why they believe what they believe. Every religion, thinks it is the true religion. But clearly they cannot all be right. <I>The Seduction of Religion</I> places each of the major religions in its historical context and examines some of their most important doctrines in the light of reason and common sense. At the same time, it treats its reader to a host of amusing facts and anecdotes about the various religions that make the book enjoyable to read. At the heart of the book is a paradox: All religions claim to be the one true religion, but if any of them is right then all the others are wrong. <I>The Seduction of Religion </I>introduces its readers to the fascinating history of religions—a history that is the outworking of this thought-provoking paradox.</DIV>

<p>This book provides a detailed, updated exposition and defense of five of the historically most important (but in recent years largely neglected) philosophical proofs of God’s existence: the Aristotelian, the Neo-Platonic, the Augustinian, the Thomistic, and the Rationalist.</p><p>It also offers a thorough treatment of each of the key divine attributes—unity, simplicity,  eternity, omnipotence, omniscience, perfect goodness, and so forth—showing that they  must be possessed by the God whose existence is demonstrated by the proofs.  Finally, it answers at length all of the objections that have been leveled against these proofs. </p><p>This work provides as ambitious and complete a defense of traditional natural theology as is currently in print.  Its aim is to vindicate the view of the greatest philosophers of the past— thinkers like Aristotle, Plotinus, Augustine, Aquinas, Leibniz, and many others— that the existence of God can be established with certainty by way of purely rational arguments.  It thereby serves as a refutation both of atheism and of the fideism that gives aid and comfort to atheism.</p>

The God Delusion

Product Description
Customer Reviews
<DIV>A preeminent scientist -- and the world's most prominent atheist -- asserts the irrationality of belief in God and the grievous harm religion has inflicted on society, from the Crusades to 9/11. <BR><BR>With rigor and wit, Dawkins examines God in all his forms, from the sex-obsessed tyrant of the Old Testament to the more benign (but still illogical) Celestial Watchmaker favored by some Enlightenment thinkers. He eviscerates the major arguments for religion and demonstrates the supreme improbability of a supreme being. He shows how religion fuels war, foments bigotry, and abuses children, buttressing his points with historical and contemporary evidence. The God Delusion makes a compelling case that belief in God is not just wrong but potentially deadly. It also offers exhilarating insight into the advantages of atheism to the individual and society, not the least of which is a clearer, truer appreciation of the universe's wonders than any faith could ever muster. </DIV>

Customer Reviews
In Evidence Considered: A Response to Evidence for God, Glenton Jelbert seeks to explore and test the arguments advanced by apologists and ultimately show why none of them persuade him. As a former Christian, Jelbert handles the topic with sensitivity.<br /><br />He examines the evidence for God, by responding to a series of 50 essays by Christian apologists. These essays were written by thirty-seven different authors and collected together by William Dembski and Michael Licona in Evidence for God: 50 Arguments for Faith from the Bible, History, Philosophy and Science. Jelbert considers each of these arguments and discusses why they are not convincing to him and how, in many cases, a closer examination of them reveals evidence the other way.<br /><br />If you are a rational believer who feels that your arguments are dismissed, ignored or ridiculed, Jelbert’s collection of essays will engage with you respectfully, truthfully, and incisively. The book will also be of interest to Christians who are looking to understand the atheist/agnostic position and refine their arguments and their reasons for belief without being attacked or belittled. Jelbert takes the arguments seriously and engages with them robustly.

[2nd expanded edition]<br />Can we prove that the Bible makes false claims? <br />Do its moral teachings justify it being called “The Good Book?”<br />Has the text been modified throughout the centuries?<br />What about all those prophecies?<br />Written by a linguist, ex-fundamentalist graduate of Liberty University, this book goes straight to the evidence and presents a concise case-by-case analysis of the most salient problems in the Christian Scriptures. <br />With insightful commentary concerning frequent rebuttals used by apologists, it makes a solid case against evangelical claims to inerrancy. <br /><br />This 2nd edition has a much improved third chapter, providing several more examples of scribal changes to the New Testament, as well as a completely new section on textual differences in Greek manuscripts.<br /><br />The format of the paperback version has been adjusted in order to keep sale cost as low as possible.<br /><br />
From Bacteria to Bach and Back: The Evolution of Minds

<p>One of America’s foremost philosophers offers a major new account of the origins of the conscious mind.</p><br /><p>How did we come to have minds?</p><br /><p>For centuries, this question has intrigued psychologists, physicists, poets, and philosophers, who have wondered how the human mind developed its unrivaled ability to create, imagine, and explain. Disciples of Darwin have long aspired to explain how consciousness, language, and culture could have appeared through natural selection, blazing promising trails that tend, however, to end in confusion and controversy. Even though our understanding of the inner workings of proteins, neurons, and DNA is deeper than ever before, the matter of how our minds came to be has largely remained a mystery.</p><br /><p>That is now changing, says Daniel C. Dennett. In <em>From Bacteria to Bach and Back</em>, his most comprehensive exploration of evolutionary thinking yet, he builds on ideas from computer science and biology to show how a comprehending mind could in fact have arisen from a mindless process of natural selection. Part philosophical whodunit, part bold scientific conjecture, this landmark work enlarges themes that have sustained Dennett’s legendary career at the forefront of philosophical thought.</p><br /><p>In his inimitable style—laced with wit and arresting thought experiments—Dennett explains that a crucial shift occurred when humans developed the ability to share memes, or ways of doing things not based in genetic instinct. Language, itself composed of memes, turbocharged this interplay. Competition among memes—a form of natural selection—produced thinking tools so well-designed that they gave us the power to design our own memes. The result, a mind that not only perceives and controls but can create and comprehend, was thus largely shaped by the process of cultural evolution.</p><br /><p>An agenda-setting book for a new generation of philosophers, scientists, and thinkers, <em>From Bacteria to Bach and Back</em> will delight and entertain anyone eager to make sense of how the mind works and how it came about.</p>
