Jonathan Pearce, author of the Patheos blog Tippling Philosopher, has edited a new book with contributions from a couple of dozen of the bloggers here at Patheos Nonreligious.
I submitted my chapter over a year ago, and it’s nice to see it finally in print. My chapter is called, “Using Common Sense to Not See God,” and it has seven short pro-atheist arguments. If you’ve been a regular reader of this blog for a couple of years, you will have already seen these arguments of mine, but even then you should check out the book for essays from your favorite Patheos bloggers.
Why can’t God just defeat the devil?
It’s the same reason a comic book character
can’t defeat his nemesis—
then there’s no story.
If God gets rid of the devil, there’s no fear.
No reason to come to church.
— Bill Maher
