Recommended Viewing and Reading

This page contains links to Books, Videos, Articles, Blog Posts, etc. that I feel are useful, helpful, or just entertaining for anyone interested in learning more about a life free from the shackles of mythology.  I will update this page as often as I can.

Books:

  • Dawkins, Richard. The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution.  Free Press:  New York, 2009. Print.  (Amazon) (Barnes and Noble)
  • Campbell, Joseph The Hero With a Thousand Faces.  Princeton University Press, 1968. Print  (Amazon) (Barnes and Noble)  (I would recommend any book from this author.  Some are a little dry, but all are extremely informative and interesting)
  • Campbell, Joseph with Bill Moyers.  The Power of Myth. Random House:  New York, 1988. Print. (Amazon) (Barnes and Noble)  (Also a PBS video series:  see below)

YouTube:

  • For a prime example of the stupidity you face when debating with creationists Watch this
  • Any of this series is worth watching, however this one addresses a really stupid creationist argument about animal dispersion after Noah’s Flood

  • Joseph Campbell and the Power of Myth with Bill Moyers (DVD) (Barnes and Noble) (Online)–I saw this series on PBS when it originally aired during a time in my life when my beliefs were failing.  It really helped me to clearly see that I wasn’t so much ‘losing faith’ as I was growing intellectually.
