Arizona Atheist Reviews My Book!

Blogger Arizona Atheist has written a review of my book. My book Atheism and Naturalism is available at (click the link) and is also available on lulu as both a paperback and download.

Along with King Heathen's video review of my book, this stands as the sixth positive review I have received. Since I've only gotten six reviews and all of them were positive, that means that the book has 100% batting average. They all liked it. You probably will too! Order now.

Glad you got it Mike! Please do let me know what you think of it, and by all means write a review when you've finished.

Best wishes,

I just wanted to tell you my theory. I believe that if everyone would stop and think for a minute, willing to see and understand the TRUTH, that they would see that their really is a God. Now i see that you are an athiest, and please dont stop reading just because I said something about God. I really want you to think about it. Just like for a design you have to have a designer, and for a painting you have to have a painter. Those things could not get into the world without someone who came up with them. Are you following me? So in order to have a creation, its simple, you have to have a CREATOR. So if there is not a God, then how did we get here. Did you know that it takes more faith to believe in evolution and other theories than it does to believe in God's Word, the Bible? Because a theory cannot be proven, and yet Gods Word has stood the test of time and it is proven! Look, God loves you! And if you come to Him, He will in no wise turn you away (John 6:37). Jesus died for you just like He died for me, and every other person on this world! Do not let satan blind you of that truth! Jesus loves you sir, whether you want to believe it or not. So, if you would, try my theory and REALLY think about it. He is real and you'll see one day.

Hi Kristen,

"Just like for a design you have to have a designer, and for a painting you have to have a painter. Those things could not get into the world without someone who came up with them."

I agree that paintings typically (if not always) have a painting. I don't see the universe as a painting. And when you say that "a design has a designer" I want to ask what you mean exactly when you say "design". Is a design just a complicated thing that has a function? If that's what you mean, then I reject the argument. The process of evolution by natural selection can create complicated things that have a function. I would very much like to recommend to you a book called "The Greatest Show on Earth" by Richard Dawkins, and I would also recommend to you a site called

The evolutionist position takes time to understand. But it is worth understanding and when you understand it you will either reject it or accept it. If you accept it, we'll be on the same page. If you reject it, you can tell me why and I can guarantee you that you will have at least a better chance of convincing me of your theory than you did before.

Maybe I'm wrong to assume that you don't understand it. Well, put it this way: if you believe that evolution works by pure chance, or that it means that a long time ago a fish gave birth to a frog, or that the existence of monkeys to the present day somehow proves it's all wrong, then you don't understand it. There's nothing wrong with you if you don't. I didn't understand the theory until I was well out of highschool, and I'm sure you have the intelligence to understand it if you read a book or two about it by someone who advocates it.

Oh yes, and the theory of evolution is proven beyond a reasonable doubt. Just like the germ theory of disease. Just because scientists called it a theory does not mean that it isn't supported by the evidence or that they aren't certain of it. A theory just means "an explanation" basically, and plenty of explanations (theories) are beyond all doubt, like the explanation (the THEORY) that spreadable disease is caused by germs.

Hey again,

I just wanted to say one last thing, and I'll leave your blog alone, lol. I know, because of the proof that is all around me, that there is a God. And I know, without a shadow of a doubt, where I'll be when I die, because I AM saved. I believe that God made the universe in six days, and rested on the seventh. I believe that the earth and universe is no more than 10,000 years old. I believe that Jesus Christ, God's only Son, came down to earth, was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, and died, in my place, and yours too (whether you want to believe it or not) and for our benefit, and I believe that He rose again after being in a tomb three days, and is alive forever more seated at the right hand of God. You see sir, this is more than just my belief, this is truth, and one day everyone that is not saved, will have to stand before Him and tell Him the reason they did not believe on Him.

Hi Kristen,

I think that you're wrong to believe in Christianity because it "just seems obvious" that its right. Children who are raised in muslim families feel its just obvious that Islam is right. Children who are raised in weird cults believe that its just obvious and beyond doubt that their cult's beliefs are right. Not that you're a member of a cult, but the point is that the strong feelings about your worldview being right dn't prove that that worldview is right because you would be having those feelings whether it was or was not right. So if you want to be right, you have to leave those feelings aside and judge your worldview versus others. And you have to judge fairly. Use the same standards to judge your worldview that you would use to judge another. Look at the evidence and read what atheists have to say, as well as what Christians have to say, and judge which side is on the side of truth. A good book critiquing the Christian faith is called "The Christian Delusion" edited by John W. Loftus. You can find it on amazon. That would be a great place to start.

Christianity has proven itself to me, and continues to prove itself. When you have an unmeasurable component of reality, it doesn't make it untrue, it is unmeasurable. If i tell you that Christianity is true based on my experience, why wouldn't you believe me? My personal experiences are measured in the only way they can be, by me. On what scientific basis would you stand in order to justify your doubt in me? Because you don't know me? Because i "could" be a liar, or so desperate to prove my point that i would be dishonest? If a majority of the population claimed belief in an unmeasurable factor, would it be evidence of it? Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. If you cannot disprove a thing, how can you prove it's opposite? I'm telling you AiG, from the bottom of my heart... GOD is real. You can chose to believe, or chose not to believe. But, from the measure of my experience, GOD is real. Jesus is real, and I've measured my spiritual "theory" in the only way a man can, personally. Now I come to you, and ask you to trust me. Count it as one scientist to another. Here's my evidence, it's within me. And I would be honored if you would simply count me as +1 toward evidence of GOD. With love. - Ron

Hi Blackout,

What exactly have you experienced that makes you think that Christianity is true? It's not an attack, I am genuinely interested in what specifically causes you to believe Christianity.
