The Atheist's Bible - An Illustrious Collection of Irreverent Thoughts
by Joan Konner
ISBN 0-06-134915-1
Published June 2007 - Hardcover - 195 pages - $16.95

Now, for heaven's sake, this is not a bible.  It's a humorous look at what others say.  I'm a great believer in live and let live.  Whatever floats your boat.  As there is no conclusive proof either way, who are we to point fingers and say there is a God or there isn't a God.  I really despise the religious zealots who put others down because they don't "believe."  I also despise those who hide behind their "religion."  If you're secure in your belief/s, mind your own business, and leave everyone else alone, there should be a lot more peace around.  Live by example, and the Golden Rule, in my opinion.  What you put out comes back to kick you in the head, so watch out!  So, back to this book.  If you're secure in your beliefs, and of course you have a sense of humor, you're going to love this little book.  Well known people have written these words which will make you think.  People like D.H. Lawrence, Sigmund Freud, James Baldwin, Lord Byron, Fidel Castro, Albert Einstein, Arthur C. Clarke, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Carl Sagan, Mark Twain, Benjamin Franklin, and so many more.  Now, I don't know who is an atheist and who isn't in this book - it doesn't matter.  Humor is humor, no matter the subject.  Enjoy it for what it is, and don't over-analyze things.  Oh, not all these sayings are funny - some are observations.  I agree with W. Somerset Maugham's "What mean and cruel things men can do for the love of God," and with Thomas Edison's "We don't know one millionth of one percent about anything!"
Conclusion - A fun read.
