Synopsis: RELIGION AND MORALITY. For far too long, religion has been considered to be a pre-condition of morality and many still believe you could not have one without the other. But what would this mean for atheists, if this were true? What exactly is preventing atheists from going on a murderous rampage? Can atheists be moral?
This short concise book aims to tackle the common misconceptions regarding morality, atheism and religion using reasoned argument and a refreshing slice of humour.
Review: This is a very short book, a novella really, but it certainly comes chock full of knowledge and information. Having said that, it isn’t a boring read, quite the contrary. Mary-Louise Adams manages to interject statistics, perceptions, philosophies and ideologies in a very interesting and informative light.
She is straight forward in her attempt to make sure that anyone who takes the time to read this book will understand that morality is a human issue, not a religious or non-religious issue, an dI couldn’t agree more. Her points are honest and true and extremely accurate in many cases.
I myself was raised Roman Catholic and I am know a pagan solitary witch of my own design. I have never assumed that atheism is amoral, but I can see where more conservative sects of religious individuals would. For that reason, I can understand the need for a book like Ms. Adams’ has written.
Although this book may stir up debate, it should. I for one thought this book was very, very good and I would recommend this book to anyone trying to understand humanity and our morality.
