Right now I am reading "The greatest show on Earth" by Richard Dawkins.
It's simply wonderful.

Here's a book I'm reading now and I recommend to you...

Atheist Manifesto: The Case Against Christianity, Judaism, and Islam by Michel Onfray

I've only read up to a little past the first chapter but he talks about some interesting things, different from Hitchens, Harris, Dawkins and Dennett and it's like breathing in new air if they're the only writers you've read so far in a short period of time.

This book is the first time I've heard the term "atheology" and he tells us its origins, he talks about our earliest atheist thinkers and ones during the enlightment period who ignored like Ludwig Feuerbach.

I think that's 5 books. It is about the journey of the gunslinger. And it is very well written and has lots of really cool ideas in it, the world that is painted is so surreal but on the other hand totally understandable, really weird, but that's King, right.

7 books, actually, with the 8th to come out any minute now. Plus some graphic novels and concordance...not that I'm into the series or anything...Undecided

I was going to read the atheist manifesto but was unsure if it would keep my interest. But since someone on here recommends it, I might give it a go.

Hume's "Of Miracles" needs to be in here.
