Why I Am Not a Christian by Bertrand Russell

“Why I Am Not a Christian” is a very representative book of essays of the great British philosopher and man of many talents, Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970). This book includes the following essays: 1. Why I AM Not A Christian, 2. Am I An Atheist Or An Agnostic?, 3. My Religious Reminiscences, 4. A Free Man’s Worship, 5. Religion and Metaphysics, 6. Has Religion Made Useful Contributions to Civilization?, 7. How I Came by My Creed; Or, What I Believe, and 8. Why I Am a Rationalist.

Positives:
1. Well-written collection of essays despite the fact that these essays were written decades ago.
2. The lucid thoughts of the great British philosopher Bertrand Russell.
3. Eight essays that cover a wide-range of Russell’s lifetime.
4. Destroys the first-cause argument. “If everything must have a cause, then God must have a cause. If there can be anything without a cause, it may just as well be the world as God, so that there cannot be any validity in that argument.”
5. A look at the argument from design. “You all know the argument from design: everything in the world is made just so that we can manage to live in the world, and if the world was ever so little different, we could not manage to live in it.”
6. Gives reasons on why people believe in “God”.
7. The main reason to doubt Christ’s moral character. “There is one very serious defect to my mind in Christ's moral character, and that is that He believed in hell. I do not myself feel that any person who is really profoundly humane can believe in everlasting punishment.”
8. Religion and fear. “Religion is based, I think, primarily and mainly upon fear. It is partly the terror of the unknown and partly, as I have said, the wish to feel that you have a kind of elder brother who will stand by you in all your troubles and disputes.”
9. Defender of science as the best tool to find out the truths of our world. “To my mind the essential thing is that one should base one's arguments upon the kind of grounds that are accepted in science, and one should not regard anything that one accepts as quite certain, but only as probable in a greater or a less degree. Not to be absolutely certain is, I think, one of the essential things in rationality.”
10. He provides insights into his evolution from a believer to an atheist. : During the four following years I rejected, successively, free will, immortality, and belief in God, and believed that I suffered much pain in the process, though when it was completed I found myself far happier than I had been while I remained in doubt.”
11. A look at the contributions of religion to society. “The churches, as everyone knows, opposed the abolition of slavery as long as they dared, and with a few well-advertised exceptions they oppose at the present day every movement toward economic justice.”
12. The objection to religion. “The intellectual objection is that there is no reason to suppose any religion true; the moral objection is that religious precepts date from a time when men were more cruel than they are and therefore tend to perpetuate inhumanities which the moral conscience of the age would otherwise outgrow.”
13. Find out the three human impulses embodied in religion.
14. Explains the desires of religion to be in control. “Men desire to be in control because they are afraid that the control of others will be used unjustly to their detriment.”
15. Eye-opening factoid. “I expect you know that in America men are still sent to prison for Atheism, not only in Fundamentalist States, but even in States of the East, and altogether there is in that part of the world an enormous need of propaganda on these matters.”

Negatives:
1. The book wasn’t professionally edited for the Kindle.
2. There are much better and sophisticated arguments today but in Russell’s defense he inspired a lot of the great thinkers of today.

In summary, this is a wonderful and cogent introduction to atheism. The great British philosopher Bertrand Russell passed away in 1970 and I would urge readers to view some of talks online. The essays are uneven; some are much better than others. Philosophy has evolved a lot since the times of Russell and there are much better and sophisticated arguments made today but the book is still a worthwhile read. I recommend it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is a GREAT book written by a Nobel Laurate and a very moral and caring person. 14 septembre 2016
Par Robert Homes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Sir Bertrand is not just a good philosopher, but a great writer. He won the Nobel Prize for literature, so that tells you. This book has several essays on the general subject of religion and its evils, the best being the first one, "Why I Am Not a Christian". There, his discussion of Jesus is fascinating and powerful. He explains why Jesus was not really that "wise", and also why he was not really a very caring person. Everyone, believer or atheist, and everyone in between should read this book. It is wise, intelligent, honest, moral, and never angry or condescending.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A touchstone for contemporary atheists, skeptics and freethinkers 5 mai 2014
Par Josh - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Originally published in 1957, this book is compilation of lectures, essays and pamphlets that Russell produced during his lifetime.

Though the book certainly falls into the category of "philosophical," it is not bogged down by the specialized jargon that so epitomizes many people's experience with philosophy. Russell had a way of articulating his arguments without burying them beneath excessive wordplay; this has made and continues to make his work accessible to a broad audience of interested readers.

The book's arguments, in turn, are not only articulated clearly, but are a fantastic exercise in the critical evaluation of the world around us. This honest and fearless look at the universe is one of Russell's hallmarks, and it has since inspired many people to question the current order of our world and seek to make it better. In addition, as an uncompromising analysis of religion, this collection of Russell's arguments has become a popular touchstone for the atheist/skeptic/freethinker community, containing in it many morsels of godless wisdom.

I highly recommend this book to any interested reader; I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

My first experience reading Russell. I picked this one to read first as I am exploring more spiritual considerations at this time. While I don't agree with his basic premise of atheism, he is articulate, interesting, and thought provoking. I definitely recommend it.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Relevant Today 26 août 2008
Par Joshua L. Soldati - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I should preface this review by stating that I am not a student of philosophy, nor was I previously familiar with Bertrand Russell's other works. I ordered this collection of essays after seeing it referenced in several other books dealing with secular humanism.

While some of the essays necessarily seem a bit dated (most were written between 1900 and 1960), many of the themes Russell touches upon seem particularly relevant today. Russell writes passionately and articulately about the dangerous role that dogma -- particularly religious dogma -- plays in curtailing free thought and active debate. Further, he warns of the pain and suffering that have historically followed when dogmatic views are forced upon the population at large by those in power.

There are many other powerful ideas contained in this collection. For example, Russell also provides sobering insights on the dangers inherent in any democracy -- particularly the "tyranny of the majority" which can silence unpopular ideas.

Given the chilling times we live in -- when reasoned debate and diversity of opinion seem to be increasingly threatened by dogma (both political and religious) -- Russell's ideas (and warnings) are especially poignant.

Of course, not all of the essays resonate today. The discussion of Catholic and Protestant skeptics seems a bit strange (to say the least).

Finally, this volume concludes with an article written by Prof. Paul Edwards detailing why Bertrand Russell was prevented by teaching at the College Of The City Of New York. It is a fascinating example of how the political and legal systems of a supposedly free democracy can be used to suppress unpopular ideas and impose dogmatic belief systems.

My only reason for withholding a 5th star is that I would like to have seen the publishers release an updated edition with greater historical background and footnotes. Otherwise, an excellent and thought-provoking collection of essays.
