AN Member Russell Blackford Releases Atheist Book

50 Voices of Disbelief: Why We Are Atheists
edited by Russell Blackford and Udo Shuklenk

Australian Atheist Nexus member, Russell Blackford and Canadian bioethicist, Udo Shuklenk, are about to release their new book 50 Voices of Disbelief: Why We Are Atheists internationally.

Drawn from an international cast of professionals in the fields of academia, science, literature, media and politics, contributors offer carefully considered statements of why they reject the idea of a deity governing the universe and human affairs. Contributors include: Michael Shermer; Peter Singer; Susan Blackmore; Victor Stenger; Austin Dacey; A.C. Grayling; Lori Lipman Brown; novelist Joe Haldeman; and philosophers of religion, Graham Oppy and Michael Tooley.

'The essays show a stunning diversity of viewpoints and tone, ranging from rigorous philosophical arguments to highly personal — at times even whimsical — accounts of how these notable thinkers came to reject religion in their lives.'

You can read AN member Viktor Nagornyy's interview with Russell and Udo here.

The book's international release is imminent. Pre-orders are now available on Amazon.

Australians - check your local book store or you can pre-order from Australian AN member, Warren Bonett at Embiggen Books - phone 07 5474 0990 or email info at embiggen books dot com. RRP will be around AUD$39.95 and postage about $6.50. For further details, contact Warren.

Congratulations to Russell (and Udo) on a fine achievement!

PS: Russell will be a speaker at the Rise of Atheism Global Atheist Convention in Melbourne next March, along with Richard Dawkins, PZ Myers, Dan Barker, AN member Stuart Bechman and many more.
