The book for our April 10 meeting is “Ten Decisions I Could Have Made Better Than God: And Other Audacious Atheist Articles” by Jon Webster - What if someone told you that they had come up with ten alternatives to some of God's decisions that were more efficient, caused less harm, and in general, were more loving than the ten decisions God had supposedly made? What if you were told that you could too? In this book, that topic is covered as the author provides entertaining analysis, satire, and criticism of a so-called perfect book while making fun of religion in a way that would make even the most fervent religious zealot laugh.  As far as the content is concerned, this book has everything: atheist satire (one of which is entitled Joel Osteen Hospitalized After Smiling So Big He Broke His Face), atheist poetry (including a tribute to Christopher Hitchens entitled Tonight I Drink Johnnie Walker Black), critiques of Christian films such as God's Not Dead, Left Behind, Persecuted, and Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas. Included in this work are four passages that each won first place in an atheist quote submission contest. There were around 60 competing entries total in each competition. In this book you will find interviews with prominent atheists such as Camels with Hammers' Philosopher Dr. Daniel Fincke and the founder of Global Secular Humanist Movement, Faisal Saeed Al Mutar as well as a song about the ineptitude of Ray Comfort entitled "Google that Shit!" What more could you ask for?
