    Superstition in all ages; a dying confession PDF book by Baron d’Holbach and Jean Meslier

    Superstition In All Ages (1910)  PDF book by Baron d’Holbach and Jean Meslier  A Roman Catholic Priest, who at his death left as his “Last Will and Testament” this now-famous manuscript as contained herein, entitled excerpt: Pride and vanity always were and always will be the inherent vices of the priesthood.

    Anti-theistic theories Free PDF book by Robert Flint (1889)

    Download Anti-theistic theories Free PDF book by Robert Flint (1889) The present volume is closely connected with the work entitled ‘Theism/ which was published in 1877. The two works may be regarded as two parts of a system of Natural Theology which is still very far from complete. The chief omission in the present volume relates to Agnosticism. The explanation of the omission is that the author was anxious to avoid, in a semi-popular work, abstruse metaphysical discussion, and has long cherished the hope of being able, at some future time, to publish a historical account and critical examination of the various phases of Modern Agnosticism. The alterations in this…

    The witnesses to the historicity of Jesus PDF 1912 PDF book by Arthur Drews

    Download The witnesses to the historicity of Jesus PDF 1912 PDF book by Arthur Drews THE present work is an abbreviated and amended version, for English readers, of the volume which the author recently published as the second part of The Christ-Myth (English translation, 1910, Fisher Unwin). The author described this part as “an answer to his opponents, with special reference to theological methods,” and dealt in the early part of it with the theological critics who had assailed the results and the methods adopted by him. It will be seen that the fault of the method is entirely on the side of the opponents and that theologians can maintain…

    How The Faith Is Protected by Joseph McCabe 1942 PDF book

    How The Faith Is Protected by Joseph McCabe  1942 PDF book Excerpt from the first chapter:In 1928 Bertrand Russell said in the course of an address to the British Rationalist Press Association that “in fifty years the Roman Catholic Church will dominate America.” For once I fail to follow the reasoning of the distinguished mathematician. If we take the estimate of the number of their members which the clergy supply to the public authorities we find that in 1900 they claimed to be 15.7 of the entire population, in 1910 they had sunk to 14.1, in 1920 they claimed to be 16.9, in 1930 16.2, and in 1940, according to…

    The necessity of atheism 1933 by David Marshall Brooks Free PDF book

    Download The necessity of atheism 1933 by David Marshall Brooks Free PDF book Excerpt from the author’s introductionPlain speaking is necessary for any discussion of religion, for if the freethinker attacks the religious dogmas with hesitation, the orthodox believer assumes that it is with regret that the freethinker would remove the crutch that supports the orthodox. And all religious beliefs are “crutches” hindering the free locomotive efforts of advancing humanity.  There are no problems related to human progress and happiness in this age which any theology can solve, and which the teachings of freethought cannot do better and without the aid of encumbrances. Havelock Ellis has stated that “The man…

    Download The Pagan Bible by Melvin Gorham PDF book Excerpt from the book:Religion is a concept of the cause, reality, and purpose of the universe, and a conscious attempt to attain harmony with that reality and aid that purpose. There are as many definitions of religion as there are commentaries on the subject, and we are exercising the usual prerogative of redefining the word. By this broad definition, we place all concepts of the universe, including those offered by Western science and Western philosophy, as well as those based on beliefs in god- creatures, in one category.  This enables us to look at all men’s purposes from the same perspective.…
