God: The Failed Hypothesis: How Science Shows that God Does Not Exist

(Amherst, NY: Promethius, 2007)

"If God created the universe as a special place for humanity, he seems to have wasted an awfully large amount of space where humanity will never make an appearance." , p156.

"Does God really need so much pain and suffering to achieve his ends?" "This is a possible God but a hideous one." p219,241 [Quoted by Ross on p111 of "Navigating Genesis" in dealing with the fall.]

The New Atheism: Taking a Stand for Science and Reason

"Faith is always foolish and leads to many evils of society .. The theist argument that science and reason are also based is specious. Faith is belief in the absence of supportive evidence. Science is belief in the presence of supportive evidence. And reason is just the procedure by which humans ensure that their conclusions are consistent with the theory that produced them and with the data that test those conclusions." p15 [Quoted by Stokes in A Shot of Faith to the Head], pg x, p36.]
