Doug Matheson is the author of "Actually Thinking vs. Just Believing:"

Doug says this, regarding his book:
"The contrast between believing, based on conscious choice or not, and analytically thinking is the central theme of this book. It points out that we cannot begin to deal realistically with the myriad challenges of our time without first recognizing the influence of our philosophical starting points, and then learning to step beyond the shoes we happen to have grown up in."

Gwyneth Cravens, author of numerous articles published in The New Yorker and Harper's Magazine, and of several books including, "Power to Save the World: the Truth about Nuclear Energy," had this to say about his book:

"In 'actually THINKING vs. just BELIEVING', Doug Matheson discusses the importance of learning how to think, not just what to think. The failure to do this has huge repercussions. He also calls upon us all, including Christian conservatives, to take seriously humankind's stewardship of the planet on a practical level, and he asks everyone to take action to correct the sad inequalities of a world in which, in his words, 'our myopic preoccupation with economic growth and personal accumulation of wealth' leads us to ignore deterioration of ecosystems at home and around the world, and the growing threat to political stability globally. This book is of value to anyone who believes we can be doing better. This is powerful and will have wide appeal... it's fresh, challenging, and interesting."

Bernie Dehler is the President of The Center for Philosophical Naturalism. For more information on events like these, see us on Facebook here:
