Treeofknowledge I just discovered (via the Secular Nation podcast, one of the many atheist/anti-theist/secularist podcasts I follow) Margaret Downey’s answer to the Christmas Tree, the Tree of Knowledge – that is, an atheists’ substitute for the religious celebration of Christ.

Downey has a long reading list that represents perhaps the best (?) that skeptics of faith have to offer.  I have reproduced the list below.

Downey is a true despiser of religion – she even hates when people exclaim “Oh God!” but you can bet she’s not concerned about taking God’s name in vain.
