Well I'm a god that doesn't believe in humans Tongue.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

Ryan Bell did a review of the book last year.

That book title reflects the general lack of mental acuity of a large segment of theists, especially apologists. Drinking Beverage

He obviously has no understanding of what an atheist is. Seems very dishonest.

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

RE: BOOK: Why I am an Atheist Who Believes in God
This sounds like someone who knows that a god doesn't exist, but can't break his mind away from the mental delusion.

A child dies in a car crash and the parents continue to make breakfast for the child, wash the child's clothes and have conversations about his or her school day. It's a complete mental block in which they can't face the reality of the situation, so it's better for them to keep the delusion.

Insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

RE: BOOK: Why I am an Atheist Who Believes in God
The phrase "believes IN god" doesn't necessitate one believes God exists... Just like If I were to say I don't believe IN myself doesn't mean I don't believe I exist.. but do I? Consider

Idk, maybe I'm off but to me it sounds like someone saying I don't believe in God but the power of the concept of God is so wonderful I think it matters to people.

Or it could just be an asshat deliberately misusing the label atheism for book sales.

When I first left the ministry and the church, I didn't know I was losing my faith. For several years if someone asked me, I said I was a Christian, but I refused to think about or discuss losing my faith. I just existed as a person and still held onto the thought that God was still there. It took a lot more years to reach the place where I knew I had become an atheist and never really looked back, other than trying to get over the emotional trauma of completely changing my worldview. Maybe his book is a step along the way of his becoming an atheist. Or maybe it's just a clever title to attract sales. Consider

It was just a fucking apple man, we're sorry okay? Please stop the madness Laugh out load

I read his other book, Why I am a Venture Capitalist Who Never Loans Money.
