A few links

Ok, so I’ve gone and spelled out the basics of what I believe.  Here are some links that kinda continue that thought.  These are statements written by other atheists that I agree with for the most part, and might provide some more insight to how I think.  These are all generally what I would refer to as ‘New Atheists’.  It’s not that there is any new information or way of thinking that makes them new, rather its that they aren’t afraid to say that religion makes no sense and should be done away with.

Sean Carroll on the incompatability of the world as revealed by science and that proposed by religion.

PZ Myers on how atheism is more than just lack of belief in a god.  He also writes this book review which does a pretty good job of spelling out why us New Atheists reject religion. 

Ricky Gervais, one of my favorite comediens, has this short, humerous tid-bit.

Greta Christina on why atheists might be angry, with a follow-up here.  She also has some more on why religion is harmful, and why we won’t shut up about our atheism.  And one last one from her (I like how she writes) on pointing out that the emperor has no clothes on.

Richard Dawkins, author of the God Delusion, has this nifty little section of his website called the Convert’s Corner.  It’s pages and pages of letters people have written to him about how his books helped them liberate themselves from religion.  Check it out if you have some time.
