The historical achievements of religious belief have been large and well chronicled.  But what about  the accomplishments  of those  who have challenged religion? Traveling from classical Greece to twenty-first century America, Imagine There’s No Heaven explores the role of disbelief in shaping Western civilization. At each juncture common themes emerge: by questioning the role of gods in the heavens or the role of a God in creating man on earth, nonbelievers help move science forward. By challenging the divine right of monarchs and the strictures of holy books, nonbelievers, including  Jean- Jacques Rousseau  and Denis Diderot, help expand human  liberties, and influence  the early founding  of the United  States. Revolutions  in science, in politics, in philosophy, in art, and in psychology have been led, on multiple occasions, by those who are free of the constraints of religious life. Mitchell Stephens tells the often-courageous tales of history’s most important atheists— like Denis Diderot and Salman Rushdie. Stephens makes a strong and original case for their importance not only to today’s New Atheist movement but to the way many of us—believers and nonbelievers—now think and live.… (mere)

Queen Must Die and Other Affairs of Bees and Men af William F. Longgood

  1. 00
    Honeybee: Lessons from an Accidental Beekeeper af C. Marina Marchese (themulhern)
    themulhern: Both are personal memoirs about beekeeping with a lot of useful information for the beginning beekeeper thrown in. The quality of the writing is markedly different between the two books. But both are worth a read by a starting beekeeper.

I adore this book. On one level, it is a man's journey through a stage of his life. Another is a factual account of beekeeping. Yet another is a commentary on humans, our relationships, challenges and struggles. I keep this book in the car so I can flip through it at any time I am caught waiting or delayed. It never gets old and never fails to show me an insight into myself. ( )

This book is just the ticket for any novice beekeeper. The slender volume contains about eighty small chapters with observations about bees, and very occasionally about beekeepers and others. Most chapters pretend to derive some moral lesson from the behavior of the bees. These lessons are presented so humorously that I do not believe that the author could have intended them seriously. At the same time, they are not satirical and they serve to entertain and also to fix in the novice beekeeper's mind the behavior, habits, and attributes of the bees and the hive. The few, small, black and white illustrations are a nice feature. ( )
