And then Noah loaded the dinosaurs onto the ark.
Assertions like these seem comical until you realize that many Christian parents aren't kidding when they teach them to their children as facts. Every day, impressionable young minds are conditioned to blindly accept wild biblical tales of floating zoos, talking shrubbery, 900-year-old humans, the undead, curses, levitation, demon/human hybrids and men who obtain super-human strength from the length of their hair. Allegiance to these teachings is expected, often demanded. Curiosity is muted. Doubt is frowned upon as a sin. And for those who dare to raise a dissenting hand, the threat of Hell looms ominously. A former religious radio host raised in the cradle of Christianity, Seth Andrews battled his own doubts for many years. His attempts to reconcile faith and the facts led him to a conclusion previously unthinkable, and this once-true believer ultimately became the founder of one of the most popular atheist communities on the internet.

A very good primer from one who knows the game.
I may, simply because of the author's presentation. He is a skilled broadcaster which made this book a joy to listen too.
The authors perspective, and several asides not included in the print edition.
Probably not, just a bit too long, unless you are driving or flying cross country.
I am continually searching for skeptic literature in audio form from Audible. This was a fun listen, and it is always great to hear from others that are nearly at the same point in their journey, but there is not much here to further the atheist perspective or arguments beyond Hitchens, Dawkins, Harris, Stenger, Barker, Ingersol, and the other heavy weights of the genre. I recommend Seth's offering more for entertainment which can be a welcome diversion from the task of drafting your personal argument.
