Inhaltsangabe

On one side of the argument is a collection of godless academics with doctorates from the finest universities in England, France, and the United States. On the other is Irrational Atheist author Vox Day, armed with nothing more than historical and statistical facts. Presenting a compelling argument (but not for the side one might expect), Day strips away the pseudo-scientific pretentions of New Atheism with his intelligent application of logic, history, military science, political economy, and well-documented research. The arguments of Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens, Daniel Dennett, and Michel Onfray are all methodically exposed and discredited as Day provides extensive evidence proving, among other things, that:

  • More than 93 percent of all the wars in human history had no relation to religion
  • The Spanish Inquisition had no jurisdiction over professing Jews, Muslims, or atheists, and executed fewer people on an annual basis than the state of Texas
  • Atheists are almost four times more likely to be imprisoned than Christians
  • "Red" state crime is primarily in "blue" counties
  • Sexually abused girls are 55 times more likely to commit suicide than girls raised Catholic

In the twentieth century, atheistic regimes killed three times more people in peacetime than those killed in all the wars and individual crimes combined. The Irrational Atheist provides the rational thinker with empirical proof that atheism's claims against religion are unfounded in logic, fact, and science.

If you can endure the pedantic, arrogant style, you will learn how a religious person rationalizes her fantastic believes

The book aims to show how some famous militant atheists distort, misunderstand, or simply bend the historical facts to discredit religiosity. Fair enough, I thought. But the text is most of the time just a rant that attacks the other side at the personal level. In the best case, the author selectively reinterprets history to hide how religion has been part of the toolkit of powerful elites to submit the lower classes and to motivate wars and violence. I did not learn much with this book, and reckon that there are better ways to spend the 9hours that the book lasts.
