He doesn’t go really deep into any one topic but he does go deep enough that you get the point. What he does do is go into a lot of topics which I found to be really interesting. He covers things like who has the burden of proof in a religious debate, how mankind has wrongly attributed things to god and why (this is the basis for his “Divine Default”), proves how Noahs ark didn’t actually happen, proves how we are not a Christian nation, and why religion is not the source of our morality. I found his arguments to be clever and sarcastic at times.
I think this book is good for those who are just starting to question their faith because it covers such a range of topics. Deeply religious people won’t like this book because it is pretty raw and the author doesn’t sugarcoat anything. I loved it because there are many easy examples I can use whenever I have to talk to religious people.
Overall this book was an excellent read and I would highly recommend it.
