Incorporating material from his acclaimed technical works, Michael Martin
demonstrates that well-reasoned skeptical positions don't need to be presented
in dry, philosophical prose. Instead, this defense of atheism is written in the form
of science fiction, historical fiction, and fantasy that will arouse, provoke, and
inspire the reader.
The stories in The Big Domino In The Sky And Other Atheistic Tales reveal the fallacies of traditional
arguments for the existence of God and the improbability of God's existence given the evil in the universe.
Defending a secular approach to morality, they expose the difficulties of religion-based ethics and the social
evils engineered by organized religions, in a way that will delight and entertain. The individual stories are
divided among four sections: Beginnings, God-Fall, God-Doubt, and God-Rejection.
Michael Martin is a professor of philosophy at Boston University and a skillful, articulate storyteller.
