(en) In response to The End of Faith, Sam Harris received thousands of letters from Christians excoriating him for not believing in God. Letter to A Christian Nation is his reply. Using rational argument, Harris offers a measured refutation of the beliefs that form the core of fundamentalist Christianity. In the course of his argument, he addresses current topics ranging from intelligent design and stem-cell research to the connections between religion and violence. In Letter to a Christian Nation, Sam Harris boldly challenges the influence that faith has on public life in the United States.

Animal Disease and Human Trauma

Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan | ISBN: 0230506976 | edition 2008 | PDF | 256 pages | 1,3 mb

Many disasters are approached as if they have a clear beginning, middle and end, but the experience of being in a disaster is often very different. For many victims or survivors, part of what makes particular events so harrowing is a sense that the past, the present and the future are all implicated or affected by what has happened. This book offers ways of thinking about disasters that are non-linear and non-prescriptive. Focusing on the UK Foot and Mouth Disease Disaster of 2001, and drawing on international case studies, this fascinating study explores the lived experience of disasters, looking at how daily lives intersect with dramatic events. Exploring the intersection between 'natural' and 'technological' disaster, and individual and collective trauma, this book views disaster in its local specificities as well as the wider context of control, risk and debates surrounding the relationship between nature and culture.

Film: Kick out World Cup poverty!

Host of the 2010 World Cup, South Africa has spent $4.1 billion on tournament preparations. But the plight of the country's poor has grown worse in the lead-up to the World Cup.
A new film from War on Want shows what many of South Africa's poor think about the World Cup. Through a series of interviews with people affected directly by the games, including those displaced to remote transit camps, our film offers a new perspective on the world's most widely viewed sporting event.

To hear more from the people interviewed in the film, check our interactive panoramas from inside Blikkiesdorp, one of South Africa's most notorious transit camps for poor people who have been evicted from their homes.
You can also share the film with friends and colleagues on Facebook and Twitter.
We are also urging people to sign our call in support of War on Want's grassroots partners fighting evictions and the denial of public services. Sign our call today.

Christopher Hitchens - God Is Not Great (2007) How Religion Poisons Everything [AUDIOBOOK] [UNABRIDGED]

(en) God is not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything (2007) is a book-length critique of religion by author and journalist Christopher Hitchens. It was published in the United Kingdom as God is Not Great: The Case Against Religion.

In the book, Hitchens contends that religion is "violent, irrational, intolerant, allied to racism, tribalism, and bigotry, invested in ignorance and hostile to free inquiry, contemptuous of women and coercive toward children." Hitchens supports his position with a mixture of personal stories, documented historical anecdotes and critical analysis of religious texts. His commentary focuses mainly on the Abrahamic religions, although he also touches on other religions such as Hinduism and Buddhism.

(cz) Christopher Hitchens se erudovaně věnuje jedné z nejnaléhavějších otázek současnosti: zhoubné síle náboženství ve světě. V této působivé knize Bůh není veliký polemizuje s věřícími, předkládá základní argumenty proti náboženství (a ve prospěch sekulárnějšího přístupu k životu), a to formou podrobné a poučené interpretace stěžejních textů hlavních světových náboženství. Hitchens vypráví o vlastních nebezpečných zkušenostech s náboženstvím a popisuje svůj vývoj k sekulárnímu nazírání na svět, založenému na vědě a rozumu. Je to svět, ve kterém jsou "nebesa" nahrazena záběry vesmíru získanými pomocí Hubbleova teleskopu, nad nimiž se nám tají dech, a Mojžíš s hořícím keřem ustupuje nádheře a symetrii dvojité šroubovice DNA. "Bůh nás nestvořil," píše autor. "To my jsme stvořili Boha." Náboženství, vysvětluje dále, nabízí zkreslenou představu o našem původu, o naší podstatě a o vesmíru. Tím, že je dětem vštěpujeme, jim škodíme - a ohrožujeme svůj vlastní svět. Vůbec nezáleží na tom, zda jste celý život věřící, nebo přesvědčení ateisté, či zda patříte k těm, kdo si o úloze náboženství v životě dosud neudělali jasno; polemika předložená na stránkách knihy Bůh není veliký vás bezpochyby vyprovokuje k zamyšlení a možná i ke kritické revizi svých dosavadních životních hodnot.
