The Coherence of Theism by Richard Swinburne

By Richard Swinburne

The Coherence of Theism investigates what it ability, and if it is coherent, to claim that there's a God. Richard Swinburne concludes that regardless of philosophical objections, most standard claims approximately God are coherent (that is, don't contain contradictions); and even if essentially the most vital claims are coherent provided that the phrases during which they're expressed are getting used in analogical senses, this is often the best way theologians have usually
claimed that they're getting used. while the 1st variation of this ebook was once released in 1977, it used to be the 1st ebook within the new 'analytic' culture of philosophy of faith to debate those concerns. considering the fact that that point there were very many books and discussions dedicated to them, and this new, substantially
rewritten, moment variation takes account of those discussions and of recent advancements in philosophy typically during the last forty years. those discussions have involved the best way to examine the declare that God is 'omnipotent', even if God can foreknow human loose activities, no matter if God is eternal or undying, and what it truly is for God to be a 'necessary being'. On these kinds of concerns this re-creation has new issues to say.

Heureux sans Dieu ni religion: Arguments en faveur de by Michel Piquemal

By Michel Piquemal

Croyances et laïcité, un sujet d'actualité au cœur du débat

« On ne peut rester indifférent devant le retour en strength des intégrismes qui voudraient nous plonger dans les ténèbres. J’ai donc tenté de mettre en pleine lumière ce que peuvent être les valeurs et les convictions d’un athée laïque. »

De manière parfaitement documentée, Michel Piquemal apporte ici les arguments de réfutation aux croyances et explique pourquoi, malgré tout, tant de gens ne peuvent s’empêcher de croire. Dans une démonstration enthousiaste et confident, il consolide le socle de valeurs humanistes sur lequel s’appuie l’athéisme, et montre combien les religions ont été ‒ et restent ‒ un frein à l’émancipation, au bonheur et à los angeles fraternité du style humain.

À l’heure où les fondamentalistes des trois monothéismes s’entendent pour tenter de balayer le rempart de l. a. laïcité, cet ouvrage apparaît comme une nécessité.

EXTRAIT

Je suis un athée heureux et joyeux d’être en vie. Or, une idée fortress répandue dans notre société judéo-chrétienne voudrait qu’un incroyant soit nécessairement angoissé et désabusé. L’athéisme conduirait au désespoir, enlèverait l’appétit de vivre et rendrait toute selected vide de sens. Étrange raccourci, vehicle je connais bien des athées épanouis et plusieurs prêtres dépressifs !
Paradoxalement, on accuse aussi les athées du contraire. Ils seraient fatalement des débauchés sans morale – celle-ci consistant, paraît-il, à agir selon des lois sanctionnées par un policier divin weak de nous punir du haut du ciel.
Mais l’homme n’a pas attendu les monothéismes et leur gendarme pour s’organiser en société et élaborer des lois morales. Dès los angeles préhistoire, il crée les stipulations du vivre ensemble, avec ses droits et ses devoirs.

CE QU'EN PENSE l. a. CRITIQUE

Ce petit opus [...] résume très bien l’ensemble des arguments soutenant l’athéisme, l. a. faiblesse des reproches faits aux athées et montre bien les contradictions fondamentales des croyances religieuses. - Jacques Savard, Libres penseurs athées

À PROPOS DE L'AUTEUR

Michel Piquemal se consacre à los angeles transmission des valeurs humanistes (qu’il juge menacées par le libéralisme et le consumérisme) à travers ses nombreux écrits. Auteur de plus de two hundred ouvrages (contes, romans, nouvelles, albums, essais, etc.), il s’adresse aussi bien à l. a. jeunesse qu’à un lectorat adulte. Il a notamment publié au Muscadier deux recueils de nouvelles pour youngsters : Les orphelins d’Amérique et Et si demain…, ainsi qu’un essai sur l’athéisme : Heureux sans Dieu ni religion.
