— [http://goo.gl/1hczPn] Deconversion stories occupy only the opening chapters of this book._______________________Just as Dan’s religiously doped youth gave way to a more fulfilled maturity, so later chapters of his book move on, and give us the generous reflections of a mature atheist.

The word “godless” is defined in the American Heritage Dictionary as “1. Recognizing or worshiping no god. 2. Wicked, impious, immoral.” This equating of atheists with evil no doubt stems from the bible: “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good...they are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.” (Psalm 14:1-3)


"It isn’t difficult to work out that religious fundamentalists are deluded—those people who think the entire universe began after the agricultural revolution; people who believe literally that a snake, presumably in fluent Hebrew, beguiled into sin a man fashioned from clay and a woman grown from him as a cutting: people who find it self-evident that the origin myth that happened to dominate their own childhood trumps the thousands of alternative myths sprung from all the dreamtimes of the world. It is one thing to know that these faith-heads are wrong. My mistake has been naively to think I can remove their delusion simply by talking to them in a quiet, sensible voice and laying out the evidence, clear for all to see. It isn’t as easy as that. Before we can talk to them, we must struggle to understand them; struggle to enter their seized minds and empathize. What is it really like to be so indoctrinated that you can honestly and sincerely believe obvious nonsense—believe it with every fiber of your being?" —Richard Dawkins
