I didn't know what else to read so I bought Dawkin's The God Delusion. Any other books you guys would recommend for a new atheist? Not necessarily against the Christian god, I am more interested in reading against all religions in general...

Thanks for having me here. Smile P.s. I am not a debater as I have this image in my head many atheists are... (please correct me if that's wrong, I am new to this), I just interested in truth and following that...

I always recommend Voltaire's Philosophical Dictionary to people looking for a good read. It's one of my "desert island" books, 'cause it changed my life.

Don't worry, it's not at all as dry as it sounds. The man was a marvel to whom Dawkins and Hitchens owe a lot.

In fact I recommend everyone read as much Voltaire as they can get their hands on.
