God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything
Christopher Hitchens

Twelve, 2009

In the tradition of Bertrand Russell's Why I Am Not a Christian and Sam Harris's recent bestseller, The End of Faith , Christopher Hitchens makes the ultimate case against religion. With a close and erudite reading of the major religious texts, he documents the ways in which religion is a man-made wish, a cause of dangerous sexual repression, and a distortion of our origins in the cosmos. With eloquent clarity, Hitchens frames the argument ...

With rigor and wit, Dawkins examines God in all his forms, from the sex-obsessed tyrant of the Old Testament to the more benign (but still illogical) Celestial Watchmaker favored by some Enlightenment thinkers. He eviscerates the major arguments for ...

The Disease Delusion: Conquering the Causes of Chronic Illness for a Healthier, Longer, and Happier Life
Dr.Jeffrey S. Bland, Dr. Mark Hyman

HarperWave, 2014

For decades, Dr. Jeffrey Bland has been on the cutting edge of Functional Medicine, which seeks to pinpoint and prevent the cause of illness, rather than treat its symptoms. Managing chronic diseases accounts for three quarters of our total healthcare costs, because we’re masking these illnesses with pills and temporary treatments, rather than addressing their underlying causes, he argues. Worse, only treating symptoms leads us down the path ...

The Moral Landscape: How Science Can Determine Human Values
Sam Harris

Free Press, 2011

Sam Harris’s first book, The End of Faith , ignited a worldwide debate about the validity of religion. In the aftermath, Harris discovered that most people—from religious fundamentalists to non-believing scientists—agree on one point: science has nothing to say on the subject of human values. Indeed, our failure to address questions of meaning and morality through science has now become the primary justification for religious faith. In ...
  
  











  



  
Free Will
Sam Harris

And yet the facts tell us that free will is an illusion. In this enlightening book, Sam Harris argues that this ...
