Replacing Religion With Knowledge


Recommended Posts

I am working hard at replacing religious belief with knowledge. I have a burning desire to KNOW. I already know too much about the Bible to find it believable as the "word" of a god. But I want to know about the universe and multiverse that we find ourselves living in. My current reading list consists of these great books at the moment:

 

Why Evolution is True by Jerry Coyne

 

http://www.amazon.com/Why-Evolution-True-Jerry-Coyne/dp/0143116649/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1367854041&sr=8-1&keywords=why+evolution+is+true

 

A Universe from Nothing by Lawrence Krauss

 

http://www.amazon.com/Universe-Nothing-There-Something-Rather/dp/1451624468/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1367854120&sr=1-1&keywords=a+universe+from+nothing+by+lawrence+krauss

 

Sense and Goodness without God by Richard Carrier

 

http://www.amazon.com/Sense-Goodness-Without-God-Metaphysical/dp/1420802933/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1367854186&sr=1-1&keywords=sense+and+goodness+without+god

 

Anyone have any other great books on their reading list?

 

Glory!

This site has been referenced numerous times in other post. It contains a lot of good book references. I am more into disproving Christianity than God per se because I am not an atheist. I am agnostic with panendeistic leanings. I tend to think the ancient mystics had the right idea when it comes to searching for that which might be called the Divine or spirituality for lack of better terms.

The God Delusion by Dawkins is another good read.

A good video series that can easily be found on YouTube is called "Why do people laugh at creationists" by the user Thunderf00t is a good series. I understand he is a physicist and in the 30+ videos he logically and methodically demolishes creationist and apologetic claims.

Right now I'm reading The Universe Within by Neil Shubin. It's a summary of the history of earth, with a bit of focus on fossils as well as a look at how we consist of Carl Sagans "starstuff"
