A Skeptic's Christmas List

Before I start up this list, I think there's one gift we atheists should definitely be getting for ourselves and for others we know. And no, it isn't love (I shouldn't have to tell you to be doing that). It's a Subscription to Skeptical Inquirer. Skeptical Inquirer is currently having financial difficulties because a long-time donor (who gave nearly a million bucks a year) abruptly stopped giving it, for no apparent reason. Don't let this magazine die. Pick up a subscription for yourself and buy another subscription for a loved one.

That being said, here are some recommendations of mine:

The Good Atheist: Living a Purpose-Filled Life Without God by Dan Barker

Penn & Teller Bullsh*t: Complete Sixth Season

Proofiness: The Dark Arts of Mathematical Deception

59 Seconds: Think a Little, Change a Lot (Borzoi Books)

The Moral Landscape: How Science Can Determine Human Values

PBS Evolution Boxed Set

Cosmos: Carl Sagan (7 DVD Set)
