    This is a remarkably good book (much better than the Good Book) by a person who is not a trained scientist, logician, or philosopher. It a good example of the expertise an individual can gain on his or her own. Subtitled The Thinking Person's Answer to Christian Fundamentalism, the ...

    Outstanding! This is one of the best books I've found yet on this subject. The author doesn't take the caustic tone of some of his peers, but in a calm, pleasant but firm way shreds the arguments offered by creationists, intelligent design "scientists", and others arguing that Christia...

    I'm quite glad I bought this book. I've been a firm believer in evolution since I became intellectually enlightened, but never really knew all that much about it. I've started to see many more creationist ideas in the news and in people around me, so it seemed like a good idea to learn...

    I found this book really concise and logical in it's argument against religion. The only problem that I had with it was that it did (at times) have that 'religion/God is wrong and stupid and so is anyone that believes in it' kind of a feel, and I just can't appreciate that. I don't thi...

    The best part of this book is the beginning, a transcription of interviews Mills has given. Interviewed by Christian apologists, Mills is defending his beliefs, and in this mode he comes across as reasonable and polite. The actual meat of the book, while successfully dismantling ID ...

    This is by now a classic book in atheism. David Mills presents all the usual arguments plus many more in a book that's easy and fun to read. If you're questioning your beliefs, then this book will help you realize that maybe your belifs aren't valid. If you're already an atheist, then ...

    I came to this book by way of More Than a Theory: Revealing a Testable Model for Creation, astro-physicist / old earth creationist Dr. Hugh Ross' attempt to explain a scientific theory for Creationism. While I was entertained by Ross's love and explanations of astronomy and the univers...

    David Mills, a soft-spoken, southern gentleman, Baptist-turned-atheist, seems an unlikely boxer in the heated battle over the existence of God, but his good-natured attitude serves his writing well, the reason for which Atheist Universe: The Thinking Person?s Answer to Christian Fund...

    Disappointing. First, let it be understood: I AGREE with Mills. I am an atheist, or at least an agnostic, depending on the strictness of your definitions and my mood at the time, and maybe what day of the week it is. And it is true; this book does what the cover blurb says it does: it ...

    The first chapter is really interesting and gripping. Unfortunately after that it tapers off slowly. As other reviewers have pointed out, the chapter about online porn is strangely out of place in this book. ...

    Atheist Universe was exactly the book I hoped it would be. (A quick read with well researched/concise arguments supporting secularism.) However, I did not really love this book. The problem with the book can be summed up in its subtitle??The Thinking Person?s Answer to Christian ...

    David Mills is the perfect person to write this book. He was a southern Baptist in his youth, who could no longer ignore the cogent arguments of science and logic against the Bible. Although some reviewers here claim his tone is hostile, I believe it is just his attempt to warn others ...

    Anyone who quotes Frank Zappa is very cool by me but, that is not why I like this book. I like David Mills because he is funny! The bonus that accompanies these two features is that this book is scientifically accurate and very readable. It shall remain on my shelf. Keep in mind that I...

    This is a well-written, concise, interesting overview of the argument against Christian fundamentalism ? particularly Creationism. How did the universe come into being? We don?t know. But new discoveries in quantum theory, as well as research done by Stephen Hawking and his coll...

    I read this book about two years ago, and the two things I remember most about it are 1) how completely fascinated and excited I was reading Mills' (extremely easily accessible) chapters on the Geologic Column and the age/creation/function of both the Earth and the universe at large,...

    This book was excellent,it was the most thorough critique of evolution and intelligent design that I have ever read. It makes the science behind evolution and the universe so easy to understand, and is very thorough in countering fundamentalist arguments. For a long time I wasn't sure ...

    Atheist Universe: The Thinking Person?s Answer to Christian Fundamentalism by David Mills ?Atheist Universe" is the excellent book that uses sound logic and concise language to methodically counter well-known Christian arguments and positions. Among the arguments he counters inc...

    Creationist believe silly things based on nothing but intuition and a belief system based on their revealed religion. Even among themselves they will argue about the placement of a comma and will accept what a book written thousands of years ago says over what science, common sense, re...

    This books is great if you have that crazy coworker or facebook friend who is forwarding those wacky e-mails that tell you why evolution is wrong, or god is real, or the end of times is near, or whatever. The author gives some good counter-arguments to all that nonsense, so you can stu...

    This book is an unapologetic critique of christian fundamentalism. It is a point by point analysis of many of the arguments for and against the existence of a God. The focus of this book is mostly on Christianity rather than other modern religions. It is well organized and well thought...

    This was a bit of an odd read for me. Some chapters bored me and I would set it down and read something else. Then returning to the book I found that I could barely put it down. There were some chapters I liked more than others but in every chapter I always learned something new while ...

    From the blurbs on the front, and the ringing endorsement of this work as ?an admirable work? by none other than Richard Dawkins himself, I expected a solid, scientifically sound treatise on the best evidence for atheism. Sadly, this is far from what I found. The author suggests in...

    I like the first chapter of the book and I wish the remainder of the book stayed on that course but the book droned on and on like a boring college lecture on evolution. I just could not finish it. ...
