ADVANCE PRAISE FOR "GODLESS" Valuable in the human story are the reflections of intelligent and ethical people who listen to the voice of reason and who allow it to vanquish bigotry and superstition. This book is a classic example. CHRISTOPHER HITCHENS author of "God is Not Great" The most eloquent witness of internal delusion that I knowa triumphantly smiling refugee from the zany, surreal world of American fundamentalist Protestantismis Dan Barker. RICHARD DAWKINS author of The God Delusion "Godless" was a revelation to me. I don t think anyone can match the (devastating!) clarity, intensity, and honesty which Dan Barker brings to the journeyfaith to reason, childhood to growing up, fantasy to reality, intoxication to sobriety. OLIVER SACKS authors of "Musicophilia" In "Godless," Barker recounts his journey from evangelical preacher to atheist activist, and along the way explains precisely why it is not only okay to be an atheist, it is something in which to be proud. MICHAEL SHERMER publisher of "Skeptic" Magazine "Godless" is a fascinating memoir and a handbook for debunking theism. But most of all, it is a moving testimonial to one man s emotional and intellectual rigor in acclaiming critical thinking. ROBERT SAPOLSKY author of "Why Zebras Don t Get Ulcers""show more
