It is provocative because for many people the very suggestion that a god might not exist is beyond comprehension, and even tainted with the smell of fire and brimstone. For others, the statement that he knows it simply makes no sense.Of the two, the second part is the more important. The purpose of this book is to explain the fundamentals of atheism.

Nothing is more fundamental to atheism than the conviction that whether or not a god or gods exist is unknown- and probably unknowable. Therefore, all of atheism can be summed up in a single question- If god or gods exist, how can this be demonstrated?Thats it- there is really nothing more to atheism. It is a challenge to deists (people who believe a god or gods exist) to demonstrate that the assertion is true.While atheism is fundamentally simple, its implications are profound.

If you start with the assumption that a god or gods exist, it can have dramatic impact on the very core of your existence. If you start with the assumption that a god or gods do not exist, it can also have dramatic impact on the very core of your existence.It is not the intention of this book to be a polemic. Rather, it is to explore the implications of these two opposing approaches to life — and to dispel many of the myths and misconceptions that surround them.The term atheism is laden with prejudicial, irrelevant, and misleading connotations.

This is why many people who privately think of themselves as atheists, in public describe themselves as agnostics. Over the past 20-30 years, the term atheism has lost some of its social stigma. However, the stigma is still very strong and often tendentiously colors any discussion about the subject.

.Given that this book is intended to be an exploration rather than a polemic, it proposes a new term to replace the tendentious term atheism.Theoterrogation from theo meaning god and terrogation being the abbreviation of interrogation meaning questioning. For ease of use, theoterrogation in the book will generally be shortened to terrogation and adherents to it referred to as terrogationists rather than theoterrogationists.Simply changing terminology of course is not a panacea- it does nothing to address the fundamental question.

However, it can help change the nature of the discussion, as happened when Negro became African-American, gay marriage became same-sex marriage, etc.Two other words you will encounter in this book are deist and theist. Deist essential means someone who believes that some intelligence created the universe and may or may not still be guiding its development.

Theist means someone who believes in a god who created the universe and actively interacts with it to guide it along the correct course. In short, deism is belief in some kind of god while theism is belief in a personal god.The fundamental question under investigation is whether any god of any kind actually exists. Only when this question has been satisfactorily answered can the subsidiary questions of how many gods there might be and what its or their attributes and commandments might be, have any relevance.Among others, the book includes the following chapters.●The Essence of Theoterrogation (Atheism): What theoterrogationists hold in common — and what they dont●A Short History of Terrogation (Atheism): Why are theoterrogationists so feared and loathed●Mission Statements of Atheist Organization: What atheist organizations say about themselves
