This collection of essays looks to address many of the reasons other than indoctrination that people believe in god. From Pascal's Wager, to issues of gender equality and identity, as well as the pervasive misogyny inherent in religion, these essays hit at the heart of some of the biggest problems with religion and the god hypothesis. These essays also give a good look into the atheist worldview and how atheists approach many of these issues. While atheism itself is simply a lack of belief in god, this position can also greatly affect how one thinks about everything from issues of social injustice to education. Within these essays this worldview and mindset becomes clear, and we see how a lack of belief in both god and Holy doctrine can shape one's viewpoint.
