So you're an atheist. Now what? The way we deal with life — with love and sex, pleasure and death, reality and making stuff up — can change dramatically when we stop believing in gods, souls, and afterlives. When we leave religion — or if we never had it in the first place — where do we go? With her unique blend of compassion and humor, thoughtfulness and snark, Greta Christina most emphatically does not propose a single path to a good atheist life. She offers questions to think about, ideas that may be useful, and encouragement to choose your own way. She addresses complex issues in an accessible, down-to-earth style, including: Why we're here Sexual transcendence The meaning of life The meaning of death Frivolity Sensuality How humanism helps with depression — except when it doesn’t Stealing stuff from religion Why atheism demands social justice Different ways to be a good person Joy and much more. Aimed at new and not-so-new atheists, questioning and curious believers, Christina ("Comforting Thoughts About Death That Have Nothing to Do with God," "Coming Out Atheist," "Why Are You Atheists So Angry?") shines a warm, fresh light on the only life we have.
