Lightbulb Paul-Henri Thiry, Baron d'Holbach - Good Sense
So I decided to upload the entire audio book of Good Sense

I recommend it to any free thinker looking to expand their view points and to hear some really good refutations against christianity.

Quote:"Baron d'Holbach was a man so ahead of his time it is absolutely amazing.
Good Sense discusses on how we can get our morals and do right without
religion and theology, rather than needing them to do good. He does
address why a divinity does not exist, and the corruption of the church,
but again the focus of this book is on morals. His work 'The System of
Nature' written two years earlier discusses more about why there is no

D'holbach writes of war, hatred, and the corruption that
not just the institution of church has done, but he addresses that it is
all based off their teachings and not radicalism (i.e. The Bible,
Torah, Koran). He was a well educated man (as proof of his work in
Paris), and used examples of all religions, Christianity, Judaism,
Islam, Chinese, Indian, and even Native American beliefs.

many other modern authors and activists who claim we don't need religion
to know what is right, that we are instinctual animals who through
reason and science we can discover morality, d'Holbach already believed
this. What makes this man so amazing is that he knew so much about
nature and humans place within it before Darwinism came along (which
greatly changed the playing field of how people view religion).

Anyone who is already a freethinker and interested in a classic atheistic work on morality, I encourage you to please read."

Quote:"I'm almost finished with this book & have enjoyed it throughout.

If you've ever questioned organized religion, or had others pose questions to you - this book answers pretty much everything.

knocks so many holes in the whole "divinty" of Christian folklore, it's
amazing Christians still exist today, after this book came to be.

If you're studying religion, misanthropy, philosophy - this book is for you."

The atheist is a man who destroys the imaginary things which afflict the human race, and so leads men back to nature, to experience and to reason.
