First and foremost, this had to be one of the worst formatted books I have ever had the displeasure to read on Kindle. What kind of idiot decides to make every chapter into a shortened font size with exclusively Bold text? This was an eyesore to read. If, like me, you’re still curious and wish … Continue reading Religion is Dying by James A. Haught is a Poorly Formatted Mess
The Myth of the Dying Church by Glenn T. Stanton is a trainwreck of exaggerated claims, bigotry towards Christians, and an appeal to Collective Insanity.
Massive Spoilers for the Attack on Titan Manga within.
Despite contemporary books, like Elizabeth Miller’s The Dracula Handbook, rightfully pointing out clear failures in connecting Bram Stoker’s supposed knowledge with the historic Vlad Dracula and – to a lesser extent – pointing out certain historic inaccuracies regarding supposed Dracula Castles, I found this to be an enjoyable read overall. The only other criticism I’d … Continue reading In Search of Dracula by Raymond T. McNally and Radu Florescu
Flawed, but ultimately a good read.
If anyone picked this up, read the first three chapters, and concluded that it was all rubbish then they would be well within their rights to do so. While there is a good display of competence and critique in the latter 6 chapters, they’re spaced quite horribly and jarring to read.
Hardcore Gaming 101 Presents The Unofficial Guide to Shin Megami Tensei and Persona Kindle Edition is an Unreadable Disappointment
Evidently, the only lie about this woman’s tortures of innocent little girls was the claim about bathing in their blood. That was made-up approximately 100 years after her death. Everything else about her tortures seems credible.
One of the perks of a Pandemic is I managed to finish reading longer books this year.
I need to bleach my brains out from the sheer stupidity that I just read. I can only blame myself for having the curiosity to read this dumpster fire. Alas, for every Nietzsche, Gautama Buddha, and Hitchens; there’ll be a Ludovici, a Jesus Christ, and an Armin Navabi.
“Beware the irrational, however seductive. Shun the 'transcendent' and all who invite you to subordinate or annihilate yourself. Distrust compassion; prefer dignity for yourself and others. Don't be afraid to be thought arrogant or selfish. Picture all experts as if they were mammals. Never be a spectator of unfairness or stupidity. Seek out argument and disputation for their own sake; the grave will supply plenty of time for silence. Suspect your own motives, and all excuses. Do not live for others any more than you would expect others to live for you.” - Christopher Hitchens
A brilliant sequel to a brilliant story.
A slow-paced story that ultimately has amazing characters, plot, narrative, and endings. Definitely worth reading/playing for Visual Novel fans.
This fairly short book has struck me with how John Stuart Mill absurdly contradicts himself every step of the way. Perhaps that sounds harsh, but I honestly expected more than what the contents provided given how lauded this philosophy is and how celebrated John Stuart Mill is in history. This work was suppose to be … Continue reading Utilitarianism by John Stuart Mill
I feel this is an important issue to highlight, because Western Academia seems poised to just ignore painful truths of history, even if it means genocide denial for the sake of treating all religions as equal. After learning more about the issues within Islam, I had to re-evaluate what I thought was true from US … Continue reading Intellectual Cowardice: Western Indology is Promoting Genocide Denial Of India’s Past
Nietzsche's philosophical novel was an amazing read. At the time I began to read it, I hadn't really been captivated by a novel since the Harry Potter series (which I love) and I found most fantasy stories to be really boring. I didn't expect much at the time, it was mostly curiosity in relation to the game. I suspected that I'd find it boring. To my surprise, it was initially quite a laughable read.
This book is an excellent introductory for theists, agnostics, and atheists unsure of their atheism on the basic arguments that atheists have against the belief in a God or Gods.
Annie Duke goes into the principles of Truthseeking; Think of your decision-making on future possibilities as bets for your future with the different choices that you make as alternative bets for alternative futures.
This book is useful in clearing away misconceptions about intelligence research that have been popularized in Social Media and Liberal-leaning media outlets. One of the most shocking facts presented in this book is Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligences has no basis in scientific research; at best, Musical Intelligence may be different from General Intelligence (G-Factor) but … Continue reading Intelligence: All That Matters by Stuart Ritchie
I began reading this book out of curiosity on what insights Dr. Esther Perel, a psychotherapist whose work and counseling focuses on sexual relationships, could offer in the subject matter of married sex lives. I had found her speaking events to be quite educational and useful for understanding people's sexual inhibitions and preferences. Seeing her … Continue reading Mating in Captivity by Esther Perel
