50 Voices of Disbelief: Why We Are Atheists
edited by Russell Blackford and Udo Shuklenk
Australian Atheist Nexus member, Russell Blackford
and Canadian bioethicist, Udo Shuklenk, are about to release their new book 50 Voices of Disbelief: Why We Are Atheists
Drawn from an international cast of professionals in the fields of academia, science, literature, media and politics, contributors offer carefully considered statements of why they reject the idea of a deity governing the universe and human affairs. Contributors include: Michael Shermer; Peter Singer; Susan Blackmore; Victor Stenger; Austin Dacey; A.C. Grayling; Lori Lipman Brown; novelist Joe Haldeman; and philosophers of religion, Graham Oppy and Michael Tooley.
'The essays show a stunning diversity of viewpoints and tone, ranging from rigorous philosophical arguments to highly personal — at times even whimsical — accounts of how these notable thinkers came to reject religion in their lives.'
