Richard Carrier’s Sense & Goodness Without God!!!

Richard Carrier's Sense and Goodness Without God Signed copy of Sense and Goodness Without God

Auctioning a signed copy of Richard Carrier’s Sense & Goodness Without God.  A Defense of Metaphysical Naturalism.

“If God does not exist, then what does? Is there good and evil, and should we care? How do we know what’s true anyway? And can we make any sense of this universe, or our own lives? Sense and Goodness without God answers all these questions in lavish detail, without complex jargon. A complete worldview is presented and defended, covering every subject from knowledge to art, from metaphysics to morality, from theology to politics. Topics include free will, the nature of the universe, the meaning of life, and much more, arguing from scientific evidence that there is only a physical, natural world without gods or spirits, but that we can still live a life of love, meaning, and joy.”

David Fitzgerald’s Nailed!!!

Nailedsigned copy of Nailed

Auction of a signed copy of David Fitzgerald’s Ten Christian Myths That Show Jesus Never Existed At All.

“Why would anyone think Jesus never existed? Isn’t it perfectly reasonable to accept tha he was a real first century figure? As it turns out, no. NAILED sheds light on ten beloved Christian myths, and, with evidence gathered from historians across the theological spectrum, shows how they point to a Jesus Christ created solely through allegorical alchemy of hope and imagination; a messiah transformed from a purely literary, theological construct into the familiar figure of Jesus – in short, a purely mythic Christ.”

Auctioning a signed copy of Greta Christina’s Coming Out Atheist.  How To Do It, How to Help Each Other, and Why.

“Coming out as an atheist is a powerful, liberating act. It makes life better for you, for other atheists, and for the world. But telling people you’re an atheist can be risky. What are the best ways to do it? And how can we help each other take this step?

In this compassionate, friendly, down-to-earth how-to guide, popular author of Why Are You Atheists So Angry? 99 Things That Piss Off the Godless and blogger Greta Christina, offers concrete strategies and guiding philosophies for coming out as an atheist. Based on hundreds of coming-out stories, the book offers a map of the territory atheists are likely to encounter and ideas on how to pick the path that’s best for you.

This accessible, empathetic guide reflects a wide range of coming-out experiences. It includes dedicated chapters on:

Family
Friends
Spouses and Partners
Work
The Internet
Parents
Students
Conservative Communities
The Already Marginalized
and much more.

For atheists who are already out, it gives practical ideas on how to help others join you in the sunlight. And for atheists who are on the fence, it offers guidance on making that decision — and gentle encouragement to take that step.

Inspiring and realistic, kind and powerful, Coming Out Atheist is the much-needed guidebook atheists have been waiting for.”

Dan Arel’s Parenting Without God!!!


Parenting without godsigned copy of Parenting Without God

Auctioning a signed copy of Dan Arel’s Parenting Without God.  How to Raise Moral, Ethical and Intelligent Children, Free From Religious Dogma.

“The Christian Right is overtaking our public school system. Atheists are one of the fastest growing minorities in the US. The Christian Right is primed and ready to proselytize to our children and it is up to us to give them the tools to stand up against them. Our children should question authority, even us and come to their own conclusions using evidence and reason. The fight for equality in the US rests in the hands of those willing to fight for a secular nation… Parenting Without God is a book for atheist parents who are seeking guidance on raising freethinkers in a Christian dominated nation. No longer can parents stay in the closet and deny their atheism through fear of it hurting their children in some way. As responsible parents we must be open and vocal about the necessary secularization of our country through politics and education, and raise our children to embrace secular values. The time is now to come out and join your local and national atheist and secular community and stand up for the separation of church and state. You have a responsibility to promote not only freedom of religion but also freedom from religion. Parenting Without God is the call to action and the kindle that will light the flame for atheists everywhere to take on the challenge of making the world a better place for our children.”
