A Mathematician On Why Belief in God Doesn’t Add Up

Here we go again…another book telling us why religious belief is illogical. Shocker!

But this time it’s from one of my favorite writers, John Allen Paulos. It will be interesting to see how Paulos frames his publicity campaign and what lessons might be learned from the Dawkins case. Neil deGrasse Tyson blurbs the book, so perhaps it’s an improvement over the New Atheist preferred style of attacks and complaints.

It makes you wonder though, how many books confirming and reinforcing our beliefs can us atheists and skeptics read before we get bored? Ideology has a voracious appetite so don’t expect this book publishing trend to go away anytime soon, but also don’t expect another best-seller.
