Greta Christina’s Book, “Why Are Atheists So Angry”, Published on Kindle

Greta Christina finally published her book Why Are Atheists So Angry?  99 Thinks That Piss Off the Godless on Kindle.

Back in November, Christina gave a speech at Skepticon called “Why Are Atheists So Angry?”  At the time, I did not realize she was writing a book on this topic also.

On her blog, she stated that currently her book is only on Kindle, but it will soon be in hard copy or dead tree form.  The Kindle version is $7.99.

According to Christina, her book not only speaks to atheists, but also to Christians who want to understand atheists and their anger towards Christians.

This accessible, personal, down-to-earth book speaks not only to atheists, but to believers who want to understand the so-called “new atheism.” “Why Are You Atheists So Angry?” drops a bombshell on the destructive force of religious faith — and gives a voice to millions of angry atheists.

Rebecca Watson, Ophelia Benson, Hemant Mehta, and David Silverman, among others give reviews, which Christina quoted, about her book.

"Greta Christina's book offers a passionately lucid explanation of the reasons for atheist anger and its connection to the energy behind all movements for social justice. It is both informative and inspiring."
-Ophelia Benson, Butterflies and Wheels

"This just became my number-one book to recommend to all believers and new atheists alike. I thought the field of atheist literature was all just rehashing the same stuff by now. But this is an original, visceral, and ultimately complete defense of not just atheist outrage, but atheism itself. Greta sticks to the undeniable facts-on-the-ground and articulates it all correctly and well, heading off every possible rebuttal with brilliant economy. She never gets bogged down in abstract philosophy, yet still hits every key abstract point, leaving you by the end with no rational reason not to agree, and finally kick to the curb that useless old religion, or get off your bum and really do something for the cause."
-Dr. Richard Carrier, author of Sense and Goodness without God

If it is anything like her wonderful and inspiring speech at Skepticon, it is sure to be a good read.

    I don't think I'm angry at Christians. That's too broad a brush. I certainly dislike the one's who approach me under false pretence… their real motive nothing more than a thinly disguised attempt at conversion. Always, they end up telling me it's Christianity, or else. Also, I don't much care for the charlatans and quacks with obvious political agendas masquerading as "men of God", nor politicians pretending the same.

    My answer is the same to all of them.

    Contrary to the nothing you suppose I believe, science allows me to believe in something likely, something credible… without science, I would probably believe in anything, including demons, gods, politicians and clergymen.

      Her title doesn't say that atheists are angry at Xians, but it does refer to what Xians do to "piss off" atheists, which I think is the same thing you are saying, only more mildly.  It would seem that when a Xian attempts to convert, that does disturb, even upset you, which is what I think Greta means.

        "According to Christina, her book not only speaks to atheists, but also to Christians who want to understand atheists and their anger towards Christians."

        That's basically what I was responding to… more like thinking out loud really. Conversion attempts do bother me though, specifically because I see no value in religion. I see it as nothing more than an attempt to get me and others to submit to the will of some mystery god and then spend life as a slave to the ridiculous rituals built around that and give up any meaningful attempt to understand the universe in favour of even more ridiculous creation myths. 

        I don't see all Christians this way… only the ones I mentioned. The ones that approach me under pretence and the charlatans (priests) and quacks (televangelists)… and the politicians who adopt a religious persona for votes. This is, as ever, nothing more than my opinion.

        Now, if a religionist approached me and said, "listen, this is only my opinion but…", why, we might actually be able to have a conversation then. However, you and I know that's not likely to ever happen.

          Greta is saying what you are saying.  She made this video or posted it, after I wrote this article:

          I happen to agree with much of what she says.

            The video makes many succinct points.  I, too, agree with much of what Greta says.
