Arguing for Atheism 8-10

07/22/2011

This is where the chapters get less interesting. Chapter 8 looks at a different way of approaching the fact that God doesn’t exist. It looks at using God and religion as a useful fiction. Yaaawwn. Chapter 9 looks at the very post modern idea that saying that God exists makes no sense, since it just reflects a usefulness of a concept within a framework. It’s a nonrealist way of viewing existence. Lastly is a brief interesting chapter on time. Le Poidevin looks at death from the perspective of B-theory time, and sees that maybe its not as bad as it seems. Not really all that interesting, but the concepts were alright.
