I do not believe in God, neither in Jesus, Allah or any other God we worship today.

Our Gods and religions are the remains of our ancient rituals and beliefs as we transitioned from a hunter/gatherer society to labor specialization in our first settlements. Man is the product of an unguided evolutionary process from the first basic chemical bondings, in a primordial ocean, to the first cells and later life. The evidence is all around us and we can no longer be in denial. The next 100 years will be monumental in our religious journey as our Gods will faint away, being replaced by a new framework of reason and knowledge. Ever wondered how religion developed and why our Christian, Jewish, Hindu and Muslim religions came to dominate the world. Wanted to know where the Jewish tribes originated from and their first Gods. Why do we have countries of different faith and why is our religion so deeply embedded in our society. But even more telling - will religion exist after the next 100 years. Atheism is growing at an ever increasing rate. The Pew Research Center found that one-in-five U.S. adults do not identify with any religion. The percentage bigger for younger age groups. This book is becoming a best seller. It offers a consize and easy read explanation of our religious past and coming future. The future is here and it will be without our Gods. The last 100 years of religion is here. Readers reviews received "One of the best books that I have read in years. It does an exceptional job of explaining the history of gods, religion,and how we got to where we are today. It provides easy to understand evidence for formation of our universe and evolution. While it presents a hopeful view that religions will fade away as people understand that scientific evidence provides a better answer, it probably won't happen without some effort on our part. One thing is clear--the more people that read this book, the faster it will happen." "This book is a must read for all. It is very informative and very moving. I would especially invite the deeply religious people out there to take a chance on this (although I seriously doubt they will). So I challenge them to read this. If your beliefs are so strong that nothing can change them, then I double dog dare you to read this!!!!" "Why it has taken someone this long to write this book is beyond me. Kudos to Albert. He very concisely sums up the history of our "love affair" with religion and it is not pretty. As someone was wont to say "I look and I look but I do not see any footsteps of god in the sands of time." Most religions expect you to believe all kinds of nonsense on "blind faith" alone. In this age of science and cosmology, where else are we asked to look the other way from something which is patently unreasonable and largely illogical.?"

    What a great book. the title is so misleading though. I guarantee if the this book had the right title it would reach many more readers.

It has almost nothing to do with Atheist children. I really dont know why the author chose that bad title for such an amazing book. I would title it "The history and future of god" or "god is dying" or something like that. The book covers the (pretty dang detailed) history of each major religion, where and how it started and it takes us all the way to today and the future of religion and why it is getting extinct. I highly recommend this book to Atheists and religious people alike. I loved how the author always kept the respect for religious groups and even brought up the (few) benefits of religion. Great read! I highlighted many paragraphs and looking forward to read it again.

Williams takes an unbiased look at the early days of animism and nature-god worship, and traces these superstitions forward to the development of each of today's great religions. His book explores why mankind felt the need for religion in the past, what worthwhile purposes religion served in human lives then, and how today's world makes competing religions not only outdated but potentially dangerous. If you're a theist having doubts or an atheist wishing to better defend your skepticism against the onslaught of theistic attacks, I can't think of a better book to read.

    Sweet lord Jesus, it's over. Guess how much of this book was about WHY our children will be atheists? Zero percent. Apparently the author is agnostic about the need to accurately name his book (Bam! Pun #1.).

During this highly abridged comparative religions synopsis, no relation to WHY our children will be atheists was made. Then the book gets into abuses of religion. As if that's stopped people in the world from continuing their beliefs? Nope. Another irrelevant topic. So the author takes another turn into discussing evolution. Again, pretty sure evolution hasn't eradicated religion. He doesn't even try to claim such. He's just rambling about evolution. Instead of finishing up the last few pages in bringing all these disparate ideas together to explain something resembling the topic that the book title proclaims, he ends on discussing his ideal atheist world. In this utopia, everyone is super happy, gets along, loves their children, and sings kumbaya (as long as that doesn't have religious undertones) around a fire of science and rational thought. Was there any coherent explanation or evidence as to why our children will be atheists? No. Waste of time.

Our current religions will become a distant memory as the human race moves into a post religious world. No longer will rationale and reason be subjected to religious institutions and governments. Rather the isolated pockets of religion left will operate under secular and non-religious governments.

The author eloquently illustrates how our current Gods came into existence and then also their final demise. The hour glass is emptying.

    A well written book A good summary of major religions, how they evolved and took over human race and now with the increasing knowledge of science why we don’t need them. It summarises key points in an easy to read and understand format. A good starting point for someone wants to explore the roots of human civilisation.

    I had high hopes for this book. We didn't get to the actual argument until the last chapter and even then I felt it was incomplete. HOW and WHY are we in the last 100 years of religion? What about new gods popping up? I agree with the premise that there is an awakening happening but I don't know if its happening fast enough to be complete in 100 years. Give me some statistics of people converting to atheism. I really like the IDEA of this book but I finished it feeling very unsatisfied, there wa I had high hopes for this book.

The beginning is just a vague history lesson on each of the major religions, many people already know at least that much. Then the book goes on and on about why region is detrimental for people, and why it doesn't make any sense. Yes but WHY are we ending religion?! What makes it seem that in 100 years we will be atheists. I feel as though the author just argued why our children SHOULD be atheist not why they will actually be atheist. A good book for people new to the idea of atheism.

It is the human psychology, in need of affirmation and sustenance, leads to religious beliefs. What is even worse is that we pick up such facets of our "faith" that perhaps defeat the essence of each of these religions. This is not likely to go in the near future. The author is also perhaps incorrect when he asserts that "Nothing is truth unless proven by knowledge and reason". Knowledge will always be limited and the "Truth" continues to get discovered as we move along. The contours of "truth" cannot be defined by knowledge. The book sets you thinking. Hence, makes for a very interesting reading.

    Essential reading Highest recommendation. I was impressed with clear and easy to read style of the book. The descriptions of the various religions and their origins made for a very convincing argument for atheism. It gives overwhelming evidence that beliefs in these religious superstitions are nothing more than fantasies. If you are on the fence in your belief systems about religion, this book will put your doubts to rest.

    3.5 Stars. I do agree with some reviewers that the title of this book is a bit misleading. What I loved most about this book is that the author has beautifully described many scientific views/phenomena in an easy language. In the initial chapters, the author tells us about how man created gods and religions in a convincing manner. Then the author goes on to talk about major religions of the world in the following order: Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism. The author has presumed 3.5 Stars.

The author has presumed that the major religious figures of these religions such as Moses, Jesus, Muhammad, Buddha might have existed in real. Whereas, there are also some theories which say that these figures might have been made up due to lack of evidence. It would have been great had the author also considered the other view. Moreover, I found some inaccuracies in the section which was about Islam which probably requires revision. Furthermore, I was actually expecting the author would provide some data on why in the future our children will be atheists but the author has made this presumption because in a nutshell science is gradually providing all the unanswerable questions and resolving/explaining phenomena which have very badly shaken the foundations of religions! I would recommend this book to any atheist, agnostic and freethinker who would like to know about the genesis of gods and religions and how these are futile.

Anyway, the author has a vision of atheism taking over, which can inspire an atheist, so it might be worth reading. I read it, as it cost me nothing, and I would even have paid a dollar if I hadn't known better. Other than libraries, though, I wouldn't bother with books like this. Dawkins, Hitchens, Harris,... authors like these who attacked faith and religion have their place in history. I don't know about everybody else, but I think now that I have moved on to seeking freethinking direction and guidance, beyond just dismissing gods. I found humanism in the American Humanist Association, decided to join, and now am a contributing part of the worldwide movement more than I was just by buying a few books-- Not that I will stop buying books.

    This book could have been excellent. In my view, Albert Williams did not fulfil the potential of the first chapter, in which he provided us with a with a summary of how many of the world’s dominant religions spread. His tone is refreshing and direct. He thinks that Moses was a psychopath and said so. I will agree if you look at the quoted texts through the eyes of a humanist. The section on humanism is good, and I am happy he introduced me to a website where I can explore this subject further. Ho This book could have been excellent.

If I were to look at the state of education in many countries, I believe that many poor people find comfort in religion. It gives them hope and comfort. Politicians use religion as part of their propaganda. The nexus between religious and political leaders is deep, and he did not analyse this. Religion may decline in the centuries to come. What will cause it to decline? This is a question that the book does not answer.

    Very informative It was a surprisingly slow read for me.... not because it was boring or difficult. It just seemed to never move on or maybe it is a long book it's hard to tell with ebooks. The section about Moses is very well written and educative although the author is evasive and unclear if the Moses character was a real being or a fictitious hero. I was left none the wiser even though there is plenty of good detail there

    The author makes a pretty huge claim in the title of his book, but by the time I finished reading it, I would agree that religion as we know it will possibly fade away over the next hundred years.

(I just hope religious fanatics won't kill more and more people in the process.) Williams argues his claim by first describing the origins of Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, which serves to remind us just how archaic and irrational these religions have been, and they in the long run hold back our greatest potential as human beings. With the emergence of science, and rational and critical thinking, these religions will not be able to withstand the forces of modernity. As Williams says in his book "Our gods have never appeared to us and never will. We have fooled ourselves into creating and believing in them. It is time to propose formally the next day of our spiritual[?] and cultural development." Quite frankly in order for us to survive and persevere, humanity will have to move past outdated religious beliefs, and use the guiding principles of humanism to fashion a better world. In the second part of the book he explains evolution — i.e. the origins of life, and the origins of us Homo sapiens sapiens. His descriptions of religion and evolution are clear and easy to read. One of the necessary ways that we move away from a dependence upon religious myths is that we become more scientifically literate about the origins of life and the nature of the universe, and that we better understand our human psychology. Future generations will increasingly see that the claims of religion have no evidence, and ultimately religious practices and institutions have not and will not solve most of the worlds problems. This is why the claims of this book point to the type of knowledge and confidence we need to ensure that our children and future generations are not shackled by religious dogma and confusion. "Why Our Children Will Be Atheists" is fairly short, and most descriptive, but it's well the worth the read for getting a framework about how world is chaining without the need for gods and mythical beliefs.

    The book is targeted at the Dawkins Fan club. I was looking for his insights into atheism in Hinduism - yes atheism is part of Hindu traditions though it never managed to go mainstream for obvious reasons for anyone who's serious about Indic religions and cultures. The author had probably read a few books on Hinduism before referring to it. I'm sure he never had a meaningful discussion with an Indologist or a knowledgeable Hindu. Vedic scripts and the myths form a minority view of Hinduism. Hindu The book is targeted at the Dawkins Fan club.

Vedic scripts and the myths form a minority view of Hinduism. Hindu gods have evolved with the society. As the society moved from tribes to mainstream, so did the gods and the ways of worship. The myths got refined to suit the new audience. Earlier narrations continue to stay offering multi-dimensional view of the myths. As the new age spiritualism catches up, God gets redefined and the traditional icons play a role in that as well. Hinduism is tightly tied to the culture, society and lifestyle. In India, a modern writing or a painting can't stay away from the myths and the religion for long. The need for Gods would continue to be there as long as there is man. I wish the author did his homework before including Hinduism in his book.

I dunno, inspirational or something about either current events and dynamics leading to non belief or something about morality and examples of how non theists are proving their morality and growing in numbers because of it. There were a few lines and paragraphs that really stood out and I thought "this book would be really convincing if the rest of the book had this same tone" (maybe passion). Again, good concept. But lost me in the religious history. (Although I love religious history- just not so much in a book so short).

    I remember owning a four volume history of the world written by a British historian and published in the early 1900s. (I don't own it anymore and can't remember the title or author.) In his conclusion the author wrote a positive prediction of the future in which religious superstition and war would disappear in a glorious world wide British empire. What is fascinating is that on the second to last page he described in detail the events which led to WW1; he just didn't know it yet.

Just look at the world and history. Read a book like "The Next Christendom" instead. It is much more factual and much less speculative. After reading this, and other atheist books, I realize atheists do have a god: the almighty Strawman.

    This is a decent summary of the history of religion. It gives a brief description of the main religions, a brief description of whether religion is good for and a brief description of evolution. While this was pretty good, I felt it was too brief and lacked depth. It didn't tell me anything I didn't already know. It was more like revision of key points rather than anything new.

    The author does a great job in providing the history of major religions and their beliefs as well as the opposing science based facts. Certain aspects of the book were interesting and engaging but also areas that were boring and/or repetitive and difficult to slog through. Still, I give this book 4 stars which is unusual for a book that I would not read again. However, the author presents a compelling case and worth recommending.

    This book is a very in-depth look at not just the future of religion, but how it came to be as well as the evolution of our current religions. It can be dense at times, but all that information is worth it to interested the how and the why of religion. The book's title is very misleading, but it is well worth a read.

    Great (and concise) explanation of the history of religion, explaining how monotheism developed from polytheism. Williams illustrates how religion hinders science and uses fear to control people. Williams concludes with hope/expectation that atheism, science, humanism will prevail. Rock on, rational reasoning!

    Persuasive and enlightening. The argument for leaving behind our ancient religions uses history, reason, logic and sound examples. I think there is a great future envisioned by this book and look forward to the next evolution. Figuratively and literally.

    This book came up as a kindle deal discounted in exchange for an honest review on Amazon. Well I've done that! Baseless rubbish! If you want the truth and answers Albert Williams I suggest you read the bible. I only paid .99c for this book but feel like I want my money back.
