Atheism: The Case Against God is a 1974 book by George H. Smith in which he argues against theism and for atheism.

Contents

Summary

Smith describes the purpose of the book as to show that belief in God is irrational:

It is not my purpose to convert people to atheism... (but to) demonstrate that the belief in God is irrational to the point of absurdity. If a person wishes to continue believing in a god, that is his prerogative, but he can no longer excuse his belief in the name of reason and moral necessity.

Reception

The philosopher Michael Martin published a review in April 1982 and stated that it was "a hard hitting attack against belief" with "some limitations".
