While it is true that Mackie does not cover many other arguments, he does cover many of the notable and rebust arguments that Theism has made, and unlike other cheap Atheist books he doesn't select the more vulnerable arguments, but rather he tackles the well-respected arguments that was made during his time before his unfortunate demise. While his critiques may not necessarily be unprecedented, his thorough rigor and clarity makes this the epitome of critical integrity as an Atheistic literature, such that it deserves to be read...otherwise I feel as though potential readers of philosophy (including Theism vs. Atheism topics that are a rage thesedays on the internet and popular books) will sorely miss out. This is how much I respect this book.
Mackie engages the substance of arguments, unlike many contemporary authors on this topic. He carefully evaluates and considers alternatives. I believe this approach is sadly unique among authors from both sides of the issue. I highly recommend this book.
This is exceptional, first-rate philosophy. Atheists are foolish, and theists are cowardly, who do not read this work.
So I ask myself, how come a little girl (this is true) gets killed by a tire that comes off a truck and slams into her and kills her.
Yet, other people claim they had a near death experience and was ‘TOLD” “your work is not yet finished.” Really?
This precious little 8 year old work was apparently done?
This is why I wanted to read this book. Well, unless you have a Doctorate in Theology, forget it, I am well read, have bachelors degrees and found the dialogue to be obscure and obtuse in the most liturgical way. In other words, I just couldn’t read it. I would rather have to have a root canal that to read this Ivory Tower book, sorry J.L.M.
