Hello Guys, From the last few days, I started writing a book to explain people about rationality and logic. It's still far from completion, but I would like to know about your feedbacks and how could I improve the contents. The link is    http://shivamath.blogspot.in/2014/05/the-insightful-mortal.html

Thanks a lot,

Shivam

Good Luck Dear Shivam, Wish you success in your book. I'm not in good time of life to connect to internet to read it but I had a fast look at it..Seems interesting, only thing that you should be careful of it is what you was feed in past regarding to culture or religion, don't be spiced in your book.. ;) In a good time, When I find better days, I will Read it carefully..

"If there is no GOD, how do u explain such an intelligent design in evolution?"

Neil deGrasse Tyson illustrates how unintelligent is design in evolution. No engineer would design the universe, Earth, Homo sapiens, and the pleasure centers of the body running through the sewer. 

Richard Dawkins demonstrates an example of stupid design. Here is a very important understanding about evolution. An engineer can go to the drawing board and redesign new models. Evolution makes adaptations. There is no foresight in evolution. It just grows and changes slowly, over time. In evolution, no intelligent design exists; no engineer would deliberately design this animal this way.

Joan, About the rating thing. This question have been asked by lots of my theist friends. If there is no GOD, how do u explain such an intelligent design in evolution? How could evolution start without someone to guide it. I could not clear my mind with it.

Shivam, I like your Preface. It clearly states your life situation, the role of culture in your thinking, becoming aware of options, and taking responsibility for your own life’s health and happiness. Your sincerity and clarity appeal to me and I am sure that people who have doubts, or sitting on  a fence deciding whether they have to believe or can take charge of their lives. A doubting person will feel being part of something new, especially if his or her life has been dominated by others. 

I feel solidarity with you as an atheist and fellow traveler in a lifestyle that has no road maps. Atheist simply means, one who does not find evidence of a supernatural god. As for the scale of believing to not believing, I am 10. For me, natural process explains everything except emotions, and that can even be studied by researchers. There are techniques one can use to manage emotions; many people think they are out of control, for example, when a temper tantrum occurs in a child or an adult. Temper is simply the amygdala (fight or flight response) that can be trained to access the reasoning part of the brain. Feeling of love can be explained as part of the natural processes, just like breathing and blood pumping. Different systems do different things and we are finding out how to manage many of them. For example, galvanic skin response can be controlled through training and experience. 

You are on a fine track and I look forward to reading Chapter 1. Welcome to Atheist Nexus. You will find stimulating discussions, playful exchanges, wild rants from time to time. All these lead to a healthier and happier life. 

There is a question about a word:

Preface, 7th paragraph, 4th line

You can thing rationally ( do you mean think?)
