About the Author

Odin Zeus McGaffer was born of a virgin on December 25th over 2,000 years ago. Much of his life remains a mystery, but crackpot theologians believe that he was a virgin carpenter with communist tendencies. McGaffer was murdered by his loving father, rose from the dead, and came back to Earth to consume large quantities of beer and fried cheese sticks. Although there is no solid evidence that supports the claims made in this biography, it cannot be disproven. Therefore you should believe this biography, in it's entirety, without good reason or justification.

This book is filled with so much common sense that it is ridiculous. Not only is this book a fun and easy read but it speaks so simply as to make Christians just seem dumb. Being a former "born again Christian" I look back and wonder how I ever believed that hocus pocus. Thank you McGaffer for putting such truths into print.

I purchased this book knowing it would be full of toilet humor and it proved to be the case. A very funny trip through many of the absurdities of the bible. His spin was new, his commentary unabashed, and his style tenacious. I almost felt sad for the bible as it is so easy to pick on and his treatment almost rose to the level of kicking someone when they are down. But no need to be sad, the bible was written by bronze age goat herders so there really is no expectation of it to be perfect or even generally accurate. We have learned much since then. Read the book and have some fun.

Addendum:
Okay all you nay sayers, I have finally read the book from cover to cover, which was no small feat given that the book is not sold in the country where I live, and I still uphold my original five star review.

This book is not for everyone, but you know who you are. It would be quite accurate to call this book an angry atheist rant. If you are someone who is constantly upset and frustrated by the religious nutts that you find all around you, this book will strike a harmonious chord. If you want to pull your hair out every time you encounter an injustice caused by stupid religious people, you will find a kindred spirit in Odin Zeus McGaffer. Finally finding someone who understands your atheistic frustrations will bring the peace that passeth understanding.

However, if you have any sympathy towards Christianity at all, stay away from this book - it will only make you angry. Ridicule and bathroom humor are used freely in reference to Christianity - and that's why I love this book so much.

Cheers

Original review:
Apparently, the reviewer before me, Phillip V. Moody, is one of the faithful and finds nothing funny about ridiculing Christianity. However, as an ex-fundamentalist (funnymentalist) Christian and a "rabid atheist," who enjoys nothing more than taking the piss out of Christians, I found that the author of this book hit home in style and content.

The things I found amusing were rants such as this: concerning debating Christians, he says, "How can you expect to have a serious debate when the opposing party sincerely believes that a 2000-year-old zombie Christ is answering millions of prayers each day in a parallel universe?" Yeah!!! He's speaking my language!

I am an atheist and I am always on the look out for more compelling theories and evidences that God does not exist. With that being said, I found most of the author's arguments compelling and well thought out.

However, and this is one huge however, the author lost all of his credibilty and respect by looking down and insulting people that do believe in God. The author was so incredibly offensive and disrespectful towards religious people that any success he could have gained, he lost. I am a big fan of offensive humor (Family Guy, Sarah Silverman, etc) but this book is down-right inconsiderate and intolerant of others. The author says that "religion is bad" yet all he does is continue to tease and mock people and spread more hatred. I am almost embarassed to call myself an atheist being as he is one too and I don't want to be lumped into the same category as him.

The arguments itself were astonishingly good and if they were presented in a better way I honestly think this could have been the next the God Delusion or God is Not Great. However, the book was filled with childish pictures, cutesy-LOL-speak, and hurtful insults. I can't believe that a grown man wrote this.

I am going to give the book two stars for the arguments. I would have given him a three for the arguments but some of them are not orginal and have been used before by other atheist authors. If you want a funny book about atheist go with the more famous authors. You will not be sorry.

I have read several books including C.J. Wehrlman's "God Hates You, Hate Him Back" and Bart Ehrman's "Misquoting Jesus" and Jesus Interrupted" - all excellent books. McGaffer, takes the argument against religion to a whole new level. Is it crude? Yes! Is it offensive? Yes. Is it funny? Yes Does it do a good job of blowing a huge hole in religion? Pretty darn good. I have not finished the book yet, but I have to say I have enjoyed it a lot and have laughed very hard from the first chapter. But, McGaffer also makes some sobering statements that are important when looking at the history of religion and the violence it has inspired (and continues to inspire). I just wish more fundamentalists would open their eyes and read authors like Wehrlman, Ehrman, and even McGaffer.

This book is not for the squeamish, prudish, humorless, uptight, gullible, dumb, pompous, self-righteous, sex-starved, moronic, lunatical, homophobic, fundamentalist, or any other idiotic sheep. For the rest of you, enjoy an easy read of common sense, blatant (and fun) blasphemy and stop taking yourself so seriously!
