About Me:
I am an atheist and independent thinker. I recently finished writing 'A bible for atheists' which is a reason-based ethics guide which addresses the big questions in a coherent way.

I've long felt that atheists have been defined negatively by what we don't believe, that is, we don't believe in gods or God, the supernatural, miracles, an afterlife and so forth. But what my book tries to do is to assert positively what many atheists do believe. Believers have their Bibles and Torahs and Korans etc. Atheists should have an equivalent 'bible' (lowercase 'b' to indicate that many such bibles are possible). I hope my book will lead to other efforts along the same lines. My book is not intended as a vehicle to convert believers into non-believers.

I seek reviews of my book. If a reviewer would like a free paperback copy sent directly from Amazon, please let me know. The book is available in ebook and paperback form.

Thank you for your consideration.

Believers have their Bibles, Torahs, Korans etc. Shouldn't us atheists have our own bible too?

I am an atheist and independent thinker in New Jersey. My recently finished book A bible for atheists tries to do exactly that:…
