For millennia priests and holy men have told countless conflicting tales about humanity's genesis and fate, while also saying anyone devoid of faith is evil, immoral, and responsible for societal ills. For those tired of these contradictions, fed up with hearing about divine mysteries when there aren't any, and offended by being told they're going to hell, atheism is a popular and logical answer. This book contains all you need to know about what to pack for your journey on the enlightening road to atheism, including explanations of the five types of atheism and the difference between an atheist and an agnostic—a term invented by T. H. Huxley, famous for his defense of Darwin—as well as how a deist differs from a theist. Learn why Christians were originally called atheists; read about Lucretius and his fellow materialists; and revel alongside atheists who happily have nothing to defend.
