New Atheist Book, "Freethought Resource Guide," Released to Help Growing Secular Population
Austin, TX, February 03, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- The world’s most comprehensive secular resource directory has been released by historian and psychologist Mark Vandebrake. The “Freethought Resource Guide: A Directory of Information, Literature, Art, Organizations, and Internet Sites Related to Secular Humanism, Skepticism, Atheism, and Agnosticism” is intended to help educate, energize, and entertain the fastest growing “religious” group in America, the religiously unaffiliated or ‘Nones’ who now constitute nearly 20% of the population.
The “Freethought Resource Guide” articulates this rational perspective through relevant terms, history, statistics, and commentary on frequently asked questions, issues, and criticisms. Chapters contain information on topics related to freethought activism, law, education, parenting, science, religion, secular holidays, and art (fiction literature, music, film, comedy). Two large directories focusing on international, national, and local organizations and exploring the internet are included. Highlights include full text or excerpts from over 70 poems, numerous funny and insightful cartoons from Tracie Harris, co-host of The Atheist Experience television show. There are also two great references: 25 of the most common logical fallacies adapted from Bo Bennett’s concise introductory work “Logically… Fallacious: The Ultimate Collection of Over 300 Logical Fallacies” and 36 theist arguments (and why they are flawed) adapted from Rebecca Newberger Goldstein’s wonderful novel “36 Arguments for the Existence of God.”
“Mark Vandebrake has created a one of a kind work. This is a book to explore, think about, read pieces here and there, learn new methods and explore Ideas. I cannot imagine the effort that went into this project. It is monumental. The “Freethought Resource Guide” is a deep mine in which you will find many gold nuggets. You could spend a lifetime exploring the resources compiled here. The Freethought Movement now has a single source for all things secular.”
-Dr. Darrel W. Ray, author of “Sex and God,” and “The God Virus,” founder and Chairman of the board for Recovering from Religion
