Description

The sub-title is as follows: "A Review of the Socially-Constructive Activities
of the World's Foremost Atheist, Agnostics, Rationalists, Skeptics, Deists, and Freethinkers." Quoted from the author's "Introduction:"

"In my "Rise and Fall of the Gods" I traced the appearance of Atheism in all periods of history about which we have ample contemporary evidence. I showed that the common opinion of Atheism, that it is the eccentric profession of a few individuals or of small groups
of men and women in sophisticated periods of civilization, is absurdly false. In every age in which men were free to speculate and to discuss their traditions Atheism appeared; and it spread in proportion to the knowledge which men had in each such age. It is now acknowledged that these conditions were found and Atheism spread widely in India and China in the 6th Century B.C., in the Greek-Roman world, and in the best periods of the Arab-Persian civilization. The validity of this historical law, that Atheism always grows with freedom and knowledge, is decisively shown by the world-spread of it, where it is not violently checked, in our own age.

I here propose to complete this study by exposing the folly of the second common estimate of Atheism, or the pretense that it makes men selfish or callously indifferent to the social welfare and to the sufferings of others. It is amazing to what extent our literature is still saturated with the clerical claim that Christianity has a noble record of social service and that with its passing social inspiration will decay. It is surely time that we put together, as I do here, the undisputed historical facts which show that this claim is exactly the reverse of the truth."
