REVIEW Ã Sense And Goodness Without God A Defense of Metaphysical Naturalism The nature of the universe the meaning of life and much arguing from scientific evidence that there is only a physical natural world without gods or spirits but that we can still live a life of love meaning and joy. I d rather give it 35 starsI skipped a bit and wish I skipped The text reads like a textbookThe best part in the entire book is the forward by the authorThis book attempts to be an all inclusive read on every aspect of living a secular humanistic life giving you the answer to every uestion which may be asked This leads a very long drawn out book His Defense of a Metaphysical Naturalism defends all things defendableHis material is good He also does a great job of very accurately responding to uestions However I think it would best used a reference guide rather than a sit down read cover to cover Tourniuet from scientific evidence that there is only a physical natural world without gods or spirits but that we can still live a life of love meaning and joy.

REVIEW Ã Sense And Goodness Without God A Defense of Metaphysical Naturalism If God does not exist then what does Is there good and evil and should we care How do we know what's true anyway And can we make any sense of this universe or our own lives Sense and Goodness answers all these uesti. There is no refutation for the standard proofs of supernatural or magical thinking mumbo jumbo that this book doesn t address Usually if you watch a debate on youtube for the proof of God and the person s specific religion all the arguments follow the same six forms design and teleological first cause morality ontological purpose of life and proof of the resurrection This book leaves no stone unturned and provides a scientific basis and explanation for all supernatural phenomena and the standard proofs of magical thinking We never appeal to the supernatural anywhere else is life why make an exception for the unknownThe author is actually very gentle as he dismantles each argument The book is really encyclopedic in its presentation but he lets his arguments flow into the next such that the listener thinks he s listening to one thematically tied together story with an easy to understand narrative and not realizing the encyclopedic nature of the story He s not really an expert on most of the topics he s discussing but he does a great job in explaining everything but sometimes he lacks depthScience is hard Religion is easy Science must always deal with doubt and probabilities Religion has no doubts Scientific Truth is only a probability The best we can do is have a corresponding theory of truth and if our theories correspond to reality we use them when they don t we modify or get better ones He correctly points out the facts of evolution existed before Darwin and the Theory of Evolution is the model that goes about explaining the data better than any other model before it Even if the model gets rejected there are still the facts of Evolution They will always existHe does give the listener many interesting ways of thinking about science and religion and can convince any serious listener that the world can be explained with naturalistic means He makes many insightful points and almost every reader will profit from reading or listening to this book He defines a hard atheist as someone who doesn t believe in any of the currently known Gods Thus not necessarily rejecting all supernatural explanations I think that s a good way of framing the problem It s easy to reject all the currently known Gods but perhaps a good supernatural explanation will come along something coherent consistent and non contradictory and over will have an iota of data or theory to support it The theory of atoms came before ever seeing one but the coiner of the word uanta and real developer of the second law of thermodynamics Ludwig Boltzman was driven to suicide because his correct ideas were rejected by the establishment I m not willing to reject any reasonable theory about a God or a supernatural entity I just haven t come across a reasonable theory as of yetI liked the book and I can recommend it It s a good book for a religious person who is starting to uestion non naturalistic explanations The only real problem is the author covers everything but he doesn t ever get to cover anything in depth and gives it the nuance that the topic reuires For example he does talk about the Historicity of the Resurrection and does a good job but Bart Ehrman s latest book covers it in much detail and gives the nuances that s reuired to understand the real issues Matter of fact if I were to recommend one book to help someone deconvert from Christainity it would be to read Bart Ehrman s book How Jesus Became God it can open ones eyes to what it means when someone says the bible says Or if someone s faith was tied up in the truth of The Theory of Evolution I would recommend Dennett s Darwin s Dangerous Idea it gives a complete story on why Evolution Theory is correct and how to think about science ผู้ชนะสิบทิศ เล่ม 8 for the standard proofs of supernatural or
