Why are atheists angry?

Is it because they’re selfish, joyless, lacking in meaning, and alienated from God?

Or is it because they have legitimate reasons to be angry — and are ready to do something about it?

Armed with passionate outrage, absurdist humor, and calm intelligence, popular blogger Greta Christina makes a powerful case for outspoken atheist activism, and explains the empathy and justice that drive it.

This accessible, personal, down-to-earth book speaks not only to atheists, but to believers who want to understand the so-called “new atheism.” “Why Are You Atheists So Angry?” drops a bombshell on the destructive force of religious faith — and gives a voice to millions of angry atheists.

“Greta Christina’s analysis of religion is acute and witty, and at the same time fair and compassionate. And I’m jealous: I sure wish I could write as well as she does.”
-Alan Sokal, Professor of Physics, New York University

“Greta has done something truly impressive with this book: She explains in a calm, reasonable, and thoughtful way exactly why she’s a pissed-off, angry atheist. She’s not alone, though, and it’s not only other atheists who will agree with her. In fact, I *dare* religious people to read this book and not come away furious at the often awful impact faith has had on the world, even if they don’t believe they’re responsible for it. I may be a ‘friendly atheist’ online, but Greta definitely speaks for me in this book.”
-Hemant Mehta, Friendly Atheist, author of I Sold My Soul on eBay

“If only more people could channel their anger into something so inspiring! Greta Christina has written the perfect book for anyone who wonders about the true impact of religious dogma on women’s health, gay rights, science education, and the daily lives of those who have no faith. Her concluding chapter, which contains solid advice for how to make a positive change in the world, will ensure that you’ll have an outlet for all that rage you’ll build up by the end of the book. Trust me — you’ll need it.”
-Rebecca Watson, Skepchick.org

“I found this book informative and enraging! Leave it to Greta to inform and elucidate like no other. I highly recommend this book to everyone, everywhere. And I hope never to get Greta angry at me. :)
-David Silverman, President, American Atheists

“Greta Christina’s book offers a passionately lucid explanation of the reasons for atheist anger and its connection to the energy behind all movements for social justice. It is both informative and inspiring.”
-Ophelia Benson, Butterflies and Wheels

“They say if you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. Well, Greta Christina is definitely paying attention — and in this book, she delivers a clean, bracing blast of atheist anger, like a refreshing cool breeze in a stifling hothouse of faith, that offers compelling reasons why all rational people of conscience should oppose religion and the harm it does.”
-Adam Lee, Daylight Atheism

“Greta Christina is one of the best writers on religion out there, period. I’ve been waiting for this book for a long time.”
-Chris Hallquist, The Uncredible Hallq

“This just became my number-one book to recommend to all believers and new atheists alike. I thought the field of atheist literature was all just rehashing the same stuff by now. But this is an original, visceral, and ultimately complete defense of not just atheist outrage, but atheism itself. Greta sticks to the undeniable facts-on-the-ground and articulates it all correctly and well, heading off every possible rebuttal with brilliant economy. She never gets bogged down in abstract philosophy, yet still hits every key abstract point, leaving you by the end with no rational reason not to agree, and finally kick to the curb that useless old religion, or get off your bum and really do something for the cause.”
-Dr. Richard Carrier, author of Sense and Goodness without God

    The difference between fertilizer and food is time. I have visited too many places where the ‘originator’ failed to know the difference and served the potential instead of the desired end product.

    Rarely will I comment on a site, especially one that requires thinking. Here is one delightfully happy exception. To everyone who visits, continue to be kind to others and think! Please note, I requested simply that you think. At no time have I asked that you think only ‘certain’ thoughts.

    Greta, I wish you so much happiness just because. Keep on manufacturing food!

    Loved the book. Just finished it on my nook. Bought it after watching your talks at the Reason Rally and AA convention. My frustrations with those of faith were crystallized in its pages. Also really appreciated the handy resource section at the end. Its really helped me in my mission as an atheist activist, as well inspired me to start my own blog (shameful self plug because I’ve only had 7 readers so far: bloggingwithoutgod.wordpress.com).

    Wonderful fabulous book. I consumed the Kindle edition as soon as it became available, and I look forward to the dead tree edition so I can buy copies for my friends an family.

    Nice work Greta – but be sure to check out the reviews and comments to your Kindle edition on Amazon.com. The Atheists give the book a 5 star rating and the Believers give it a 1 star rating. The reviews are most amusing.

    I’m looking forward to the print edition. Hopefully it’s out by the end of June. It would make a great wedding gift, and I’ll be getting married in New York around that time.

    Got the Nook edition and read it. Outstanding stuff. Can’t wait to get several of the dead tree editions for gifts.

    Waiting for an avenue to obtain a signed copy of the print version. Will go up on my shelf right beside similar from Dawkins, Hitch, Harris, etc. (Reading the nook version in the meantime)

  8. says

    Excellent! I’ve been waiting for this to come in a format I could access. (Geo restrictions occassionally being even more annoying than DRM issues, with the combination of the two being doubly annoying.) Looking forward to the read.

    you already got my cash for the kindle version…
    congrats on the book’s success…
