I’ll keep this short today. Today is Christmas Day. Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, I hope you have a great day. I’m an Atheist who celebrates Christmas. Everything we do is secular. I expect I’ll receive a few Amazon Kindle gift cards from family. What will I use them on? Well, I have a list of Atheist books I’ve had my eye on for a while. This will be the perfect opportunity to purchase and read them!
I like to read books of many different genres including Atheism themed books. I’ve purchased several Atheism themed books on Amazon for my Kindle. I haven’t read all of them yet, but I’ve purchased several. You may not realize this but there are many, many books on Amazon for free or for $0.99. That’s much cheaper than the $7.99 or $9.99 that is typical of books written by more well-known authors in the area. To find these books, just go to Amazon, type in ‘Atheist’ or ‘Atheism’ in the search bar of the Kindle store and voila! Change the list rankings from low to high price and the free books will appear first. Here’s the link to what pops up for me when I do a search.
I can’t comment on the quality of all of these free books, but several are quite good. Be a bit careful as there are a few religious books attacking Atheism that appear on this list. You can certainly read these as it is always good to hear what the other side has to say, but if that’s not what you’re looking for, just read through the book description before downloading to double check.
Here’s another Atheist podcast to add to your listening collection. There are never too many Atheist podcasts to have in your list. This one is called Danthropology and hosted by Dan Arel.
This a new podcast Arel started in late October, so there are just a few episodes out at this time. Arel has a blog (see link above) called Danthropolgy and has written a few books, including Parenting Without God. You can see his list of books here:
The first few episodes have focused on the separation of church of state and have had several good interviews. Dan Arel is also known for his work in fighting against Ken Ham and the tax breaks the state of Kentucky eventually gave him to build “Noah’s Ark” near the Creation Museum.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this podcast and am very happy to see Arel add podcasting to his list of Atheist outreach activites!
