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

Summary[edit]

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[edit]

The philosopher Michael Martin published a review in April 1982 and stated that it was "a hard hitting attack against belief" with "some limitations".[1]
