    A Manual for Creating Atheists od Petera Boghossiana

    A Manual for Creating Atheists offers the first-ever guide not for talking people into faith–but for talking them out of it. 🙂


    Foreword by Michael Shermer
    Born-Again Atheist

    Chapter 1: Street Epistemology
    Introduces Street Epistemology and the purpose of the book: To give people the conversational tools to talk people out of their faith and help them embrace reason.

    Chapter 2: Faith
    Clarifies and examines the terms “faith,” “atheist,” and “agnostic.” Articulates faith as an epistemology, underscores the fact that faith claims are knowledge claims, and then briefly articulates the problem and danger of faith.

    Chapter 3: Doxastic Closure, Belief, and Epistemology
    Describes the pathology of closed belief systems, how people’s belief systems become immune to revision, argues for the idea that faithbased beliefs can be changed, and explores the study of knowledge (epistemology) as it pertains to changes in belief.

    Chapter 4: Interventions and Strategies
    Draws from diverse peer-reviewed literature and provides broad conversational strategies readers can use when attempting to liberate subjects of their faith.

    Chapter 5: Enter Socrates
    Details and explains how the use of the Socratic method is employed to help people abandon their faith.

    Chapter 6: After the Fall
    Explains what goes in faith’s place once it’s been removed.

    Chapter 7: Anti-Apologetics 101
    Explores common responses in the defense of faith and explains effective answers specifically designed to facilitate belief change.

    Chapter 8: Faith and the Academy
    Discusses the failure of contemporary academia in dealing with faith, argues that educators should give faith-based claims no countenance in the classroom, and offers a roadmap to disabuse students of epistemological relativism.

    Chapter 9: Containment Protocols
    Reconceptualizes the problem of faith, sets goals, looks ahead, and suggests strategies to stop the spread of faith. Includes a section on how to raise a child with a skeptical mind-set.

    Max Tegmark: Our Mathematical Universe: My Quest for the Ultimate Nature of Reality.

    Pekná, pythagorejsko-platónsky ladená knižka 🙂

  12. Medea says:

    “Our Mathematical Universe boldly confronts one of the deepest questions at the fertile interface of physics and philosophy: why is mathematics so spectacularly successful at describing the cosmos? Through lively writing and wonderfully accessible explanations, Max Tegmark—one of the world’s leading theoretical physicists—guides the reader to a possible answer, and reveals how, if it’s right, our understanding of reality itself would be radically altered.” —Prof. Brian Greene, physicist, author of The Elegant Universe and The Hidden Reality

    “Daring, Radical. Innovative. A game changer. If Dr. Tegmark is correct, this represents a paradigm shift in the relationship between physics and mathematics, forcing us to rewrite our textbooks. A must read for anyone deeply concerned about our universe.” —Prof. Michio Kaku, author of Physics of the Future

    “Tegmark offers a fresh and fascinating perspective on the fabric of physical reality and life itself. He helps us see ourselves in a cosmic context that highlights the grand opportunities for the future of life in our universe.” —Ray Kurzweil, author of The Singularity is Near

    “Readers of varied backgrounds will enjoy this book. Almost anyone will find something to learn here, much to ponder, and perhaps something to disagree with.” —Prof. Edward Witten, physicist, Fields Medalist & Milner Laureate

    “This inspirational book written by a true expert presents an explosive mixture of physics, mathematics and philosophy which may alter your views on reality.” —Prof. Andrei Linde, physicist, Gruber & Milner Laureate for development of inflationary cosmology

    “Galileo famously said that the universe is written in the language of mathematics. Now Max Tegmark says that the universe IS mathematics. You don’t have to necessarily agree, to enjoy this fascinating journey into the nature of reality.” —Prof. Mario Livio, astrophysicist, author of Brilliant Blunders and Is God a Mathematician?

    “Scientists and lay aficionados alike will find Tegmark’s book packed with information and very thought provoking. You may recoil from his thesis, but nearly every page will make you wish you could debate the issues face—to—face with him.” —Prof. Julian Barbour, physicist, author of The End of Time

    “In Our Mathematical Universe, renowned cosmologist Max Tegmark takes us on a whirlwind tour of the universe, past, present—and other. With lucid language and clear examples, Tegmark provides us with the master measure of not only of our cosmos, but of all possible universes. The universe may be lonely, but it is not alone.” —Prof. Seth Lloyd, Professor of quantum mechanical engineering, MIT, author of Programming the Universe

    “Max Tegmark leads his readers, clearly and accessibly, right to the frontiers of speculative cosmology —and indeed far beyond.” —Prof. Martin Rees, Astronomer Royal, cosmology pioneer, author of Our Final Hour

    Christian Downloads:
    Rozsáhlá databáze křesťanských knih (cca 6300). Je to pomalé a těžkopádné a většina z toho bude asi škvár, ale dají se tam najít zajímavé tituly.

  14. Medea says:

    Michal, možno by Ťa mohli zaujať kresťanské apológie z prvých storočí kresťanstva. Tieto dielka môžu poslúžiť ako okienka do myslí (vzdelaných) raných kresťanov.

    Už som spomínala rétoricky kvalitné (ale filozoficky slabé) apológie právnika Tertulliána, ktorý však nemal rád filozofiu 🙂 Teraz spomeniem prvého kresťanského filozofa – Justina Martýra (100-165), ktorý napísal dve apológie (Prvá apológia, Druhá apológia) a Dialóg s Tryfónom. Filozoficky založený bol aj zakladateľ alexandrijskej teologickej školy – Klement z Alexandrie (150-215). Napísal napr. apologetický spis Protreptikos. Tiež Ti môžem odporučiť apológiu List Diognetovi z 2. storočia alebo Origenov spis Contra Celsum, napísaný okolo roku 248. A samozrejme, že by som Ti ešte mohla odporučiť Augustinove spisy: Vyznania a O obci Božej, z doby triumfujúceho kresťanstva (žil 354-430) 🙂

    Ako som už hovorila, spomínané dielka poskytnú zaujímavý náhľad do myslí prvých kresťanov a môžeš sa pobaviť aj silou/slabosťou ich argumentov (a prípadne napísať o tom nejaký článok/články) 😉

    Anglické preklady spomínaných textov môžeš nájsť napr. tu: (ale dajú sa dohľadať aj preklady v češtine).

    Najčastejšie sa raní apologéti oháňajú údajnou dávnovekosťou Biblie, jej údajne splnenými proroctvami, správami o Ježišových divoch, morálnosťou kresťanov, “božským” usporiadaním sveta a teologickými interpretáciami významných starých filozofov.

    • Medea says:

      Povedala by som, že spisy týchto antických apologétov predstavujú celkom jasné a osviežujúce čítanie, v porovnaní s hmlistou, uhýbavou a slizkou rétorikou kresťanských (post)modernistov 😉
