This is a famous but very controversial piece by Bertrand Russell. It was a lecture delivered in 1927 at National Secular Society, London. Later in 1957 it was part of a book with the same title and reached international fame. He examines one by one several highly regarded arguments for the existence (or necessity) of God. His main point however is the possibility of morality based on another principle than God. It is quite a challenging reading and one we must all face, regardless of our belief or lack of it, thereof. Enjoy!

An easy reader thats simplified and written with fact.
Written how a book of this topic should be.
I was disappointed with this offering.
I was looking forward to the thoughts of one I supposed was a world class thinker only to find from the outset a very superficial treatment of important matters.
For the writer of a lecture called "Why I am not a Christian" to stumble from the first with the definition a Christian is to call into question its worth in plausibly addressing the question posed.
Sadly the argumentation throughout did not improve.
Am I correct in thinking that this is not Lord Russell's actual lecture.
