This is a quote extracted from the book Natural Atheism which I reviewed earlier:

Virtually all of human history and thought has been grounded on the premise of gods. Atheism alone has not been responsible for the gradual disintegration of this ground; rather, Atheism is the finished product, not the process. Reason, natural investigation (i.e. science), cultural comparison (i.e. anthropology), religious diversity, and other world-shaking and world-dissolving forces and discoveries have slowly but inexorably chipped away at the ground of god(s).

Eller has certainly express the simple truth well!

As I like to say: atheism is a conclusion, not a premiss.

Interesting review, it certainly sound like a book I should be adding to my wishlist. 🙂
