We can’t avoid the persistent questions about the meaning of life—and the nature of reality. But science is the only means of answering them. So declares philosopher Alex Rosenberg in this bracing, surprisingly sanguine take on a world without god. The science that makes us nonbelievers, he demonstrates, tells us the nature of reality, the purpose of everything, the difference between right and wrong, how the mind works, even the direction of human history.
“A tough test of the intellectual mettle of the armchair atheists and those teetering between faith and committing to life without it.” (Boston Globe)

The Purposeless driven life and world
- Gary "l'enfer c'est les autres"
A Refreshingly Positive Read
Unlike other Atheist-Minded books I have read, this one doesn't try to make arguments for why there is no God. It accepts that fact and moves on providing "scientistic" observations that are based on facts about the physical universe.
The best part for me was that the author didn't try to slam religion or religious people while making his points or come across like he had a point of view to defend. I thought it was well thought out and would be helpful to anyone striving to live an illusion free life.
