In less than a week, God Needs To Go will be available for download. Until then, please enjoy the introductory chapter!
In December of 2012, I self-published my first book. It did fairly well, achieving the #4 eBook spot in the atheism category on Amazon, just behind Hitchens and Dawkins. In 2013, while ‘Improbable’ was in the publishing process, I sidelined the book with the hopes I’d return, rework the content, and republish.
Well, I’m happy to announce Atheist Republic will republish ‘God Needs To Go: Why Christian Beliefs Fail’ – coming soon! As more information surfaces, I’ll be quick to update you! Thanks for the support, everyone.
Improbable: Issues with the God Hypothesis is now available on Amazon, in both paperback and eBook formats. Like I stated previously, there were a number of reasons why I decided to self-publish rather than seek-out an alternate publishing company. Aside from an opportunity to restructure and re-edit my book, what I truly wanted was to provide my work at a more affordable price. Thanks to everyone for your support.
Synopsis: “Does God exist?” – This question has plagued humanity since its beginning. From the primitive to the sophisticated, human kind has worshipped gods of every shape, gender, size, and creed. One god, however, reigns supreme: The God of Abraham. Giving birth to the three most prevalent monotheistic religions existing today, Yahweh has dominated the theological landscape. A recent intellectual movement has taken place, however, challenging the religious status quo. This movement has given many the right to approach the God hypothesis with skepticism. Improbable: Issues with the God Hypothesis critically examines the claims made by the religious, determining whether a belief in Yahweh is actually as reasonable as long believed.

Recently, Armin Navabi asked that I review his new book. An amazing thorough work, I must say.
Armin Navabi does an amazing job eviscerating the God claim. Using evidence and logic, Navabi addresses almost every topic associated with the idea that God “exists.” He wonderfully details the position of atheism with clear and concise language. Many other books detail the arguments of atheism, but rarely do they match the approachable style Navabi shows in this book. We as atheists find ourselves often in debate with theists regarding scripture, origins, morality, and prayer; all of these things are covered thoroughly.
My path to atheism was a long one. Once I came to my conclusion, I wanted to discuss the topic with as many theists as possible. This book would’ve certainly helped my growth as a young atheist. Do not disregard this book if you think you “know everything” about atheism. It’s an amazing work worth the read.
Recently, Armin Navabi (Founder of Atheist Republic and author of ‘Why There Is No God: Simple Responses to 20 Common Arguments for the Existence of God‘) reviewed ‘Improbable: Is There Any Reason To Believe In God?‘:
“Improbable is a book that seeks to challenge its readers’ concepts of religion, faith, and the monotheistic conventions they may have blindly accepted in the past. Thankfully, it does so with class, panache, straight talk, and scientifically based supporting evidence to back up its points.
Brucker tackles the toughest concepts that many of us wrestle with in making the decision on how we’re going to look at faith going forward in our lives. Discussed are intelligent design (or lack thereof), moral implications, and the alternative explanations for our universe.
While Brucker is respectful in his approach and doesn’t lambaste the faithful as idiots, he also doesn’t skirt the issue or qualify his suppositions. This straightforward style makes the book feel honest.
Regardless of your starting point, Brucker’s insights are inarguably thought-provoking and worth consideration for both the religious and nonreligious, but would be better swallowed by someone already on the path to non-faith.”
The review can be found on Amazon.
“Young Earth Creationists are dead wrong, no matter how much they would like you to think the contrary. Their misunderstandings of science speak heavily toward their ignorance of the natural world, as well as their reluctance to accept new and revised information. God is and will always be their go-to answer for most questions, but science has refuted (quite effectively) the idea that God created this planet, universe, and inanimate and animate objects less than 10,000 years ago. With index fingers plunged deep into their ear canals, they continue to believe only to maintain their faith in God; standing as a testament to the fact that faith makes you believe and say silly and outlandish things. Not only do they believe their religious beliefs to be true, they’re often vocal about it. Out of all their silly beliefs, these five reasons effectively demonstrate why the Creationist is dead wrong.”

Today, I released episode 8 of From An Atheist Among You, titled “My Story”.
Today, I released episode 7 of From An Atheist Among You, titled “Does God Exist?”
“I’ve discussed the existence of God on numerous occasions with a number of people whose backgrounds widely vary. While the conversations are intriguing and I enjoy the diversity of perspectives, what I find the most interesting is how they’ve come to believe in God and why they understand their belief to be a sensible one; in what ways did they evaluate the evidence? This is where I try to take my conversations almost immediately. I want to understand how they process information once faith is involved. For instance, if they believe in a god, did they come to this conclusion before or after affirming its existence? Questioning their particular claims may spark a more intriguing conversation and can actually lead to a positive outcome. Thinking rationally is imperative, especially since we live in a world dominated by faith and superstitions.”
