Review of 'Portable Atheist' on 'Storygraph'

3 stars

It's an anthology, so on one hand, it's a mixed bag; on the other hand, if you don't like something, just skip it and move on to the next piece.

Perhaps the most striking thing about this collection is that it shows that the "New atheists"' arguments are not new. I knew this intellectually, of course, but reading Mark Twain or Percy Bysshe Shelley or David Hume making arguments that still come up regularly today really brought it home.
