Believers have their Bibles, Torahs, Korans etc. Shouldn't us atheists have our own bible too? So that we are not defined negatively in terms of what we don't believe (i.e. we don't believe in the supernatural, gods or God, miracles, an afterlife etc) but a statement that defines positively what many of us do believe?
I am an atheist and independent thinker in New Jersey. My recently finished book A bible for atheists tries to do exactly that: positively answer all of the big questions in a compact ethical guide. It is built around a new conception of fate and free will, integrating ideas about causation, human agency, the emotions, rights and politics and the meaning of life. It is not intended as a vehicle to convert believers into non-believers, although it tries to distinguish the good effects of religion from the malevolent ones. It is "a bible" not "The Bible" since I believe that many approaches to atheism are possible, and I offer just one approach. I see it as a work-in-progress; as I learn more, I'll try to make improved versions, and I encourage people who are smarter and more knowledgeable than me to consider writing their own bibles for atheists.
Amazon will allow me to offer it free in e-book form in the next 90-day period, so if you'd like a free e-book it will probably be in August (I'll let people know). If you have Kindle Unlimited, the book is free. The lowest Amazon lets me price it is $2.99 (e-book) and $5.99 (paperback). If reviewers would like a free paperback from Amazon to you I can possibly arrange it but my funds are limited.
So I hope my book helps to advance atheism. Best to everybody, stay safe. -- tom
