I need a new book.
I've currently read "The God delusion" "The Greatest show on earth" -Richard Dawkins and "God is not great" Christopher Hitchens.

Any recommendations? As long as the book is informative. Physics? Biology? Anti-Religion?

I personally am reading the new Stephen King, which will be followed by the Hitchens book. But I found this which may be of some help.

RE: I need a new book.
I must've left this open and the cat got on the keyboard. Sorry about that.
I've not read too many atheist books, what I'm reading now is the people of the forest which is a great book on pygmies and gives you a bit of understanding towards African religions both magic based (Africans) and practical (pygmies). I like a wide range of subjects, and atheist literature is a new thing for me to read.

I'm not a non believer, I believe in the possibility of anything. I just don't let the actuality of something be determined by a 3rd party.

RE: I need a new book.
I bought "God is not great" by Christopher Hitchens today, and started reading. So far 100 pages in one bite (and got a sunburn to go with it). What a book!! I also bought "the god delusion" and "the reason for god" by Timothy Keller, just to make some balance. (and it was buy 3, pay for 2).

Wow! Memories flood bach. I was assigned to read that in 1989 for an Antropology course I was forced to take. I probably would approach it drastically different today.

RE: I need a new book.
Essential reading for anyone who lives in Japan, where they have finished fleshing out their robots and giving them the outward appearance of females. Also a good read for anyone guilty of loving their Sybian (Wiki) and other so called "f*ck machines". Many people may have seen the recent documentaries on men who spend thousands of dollars on life-like replicants of females, the technology involved in making them is far beyond a simple blow-up doll.

For people who occasionally feel guilty about embracing pop culture, I suggest you read the following book.

Hop on Pop: The Politics and Pleasures of Popular Culture, by Henry Jenkins III, Tara McPherson and Jane Shattuc

RE: I need a new book.
Carl Sagan's Demon Haunted World is a must read from what I've heard (I bought it but haven't had the time to read it.)
I'm currently reading Evolution: What the fossils says and Why it matters by Don Prothero.
Other good ones are The Portable Atheist by Christopher Hitchens (a collection of mostly philosophical writings relating to religion), Misquoting Jesus by Bart Ehrman, and Trick or Treatment by Simon Singh and Edzard Ernst.
