Amazon com book reviews

The following books need negative book reviews at Amazon com:

a book by Zig Ziglar "God is the best way"

books by Osteen pushing the god delusion

"God Hypothesis" (NOT the good book "God: the failed hypothesis", the book that needs negative review tries to steal the name).

Good point.  I dislike it when people review books they haven't read.

Books on atheism, purchases on Amazon support the Rational Response Squad server.

It's true. Still, there is no amount of negative feedback that will make even the most "simple" pro-theistic book do anything but sell like mad.

I never said you are not

I never said you are not allowed to read the books if you want to financially support their view point.
However, if you don't post a comment on Amazon, you cannot complain about the God Delusion spreading instead of rational truth, since you did not support truth against superstition.

The RRS disagrees strongly

The RRS disagrees strongly with the practice of spamming Amazon or any other website with reviews that are not based on actual reading of the book.  We will not endorse any such reviews, regardless of whether it is a member of this website or not.

To the end of reading without supporting, there are tons of used booksellers online.  I think it would be a great idea to get an RRS critique circle.  One book could be read and then passed on by several RRS members, allowing genuine reviews to be posted while not supporting authors with whom we know we disagree.

I won`t give a bad review

I won`t give a bad review on amazon for a book I have not read. That seems to be the sort of thing a theist would do.

Hamby, thats a great idea btw, why don`t you start it up?

Alright, I think I will. 

Alright, I think I will.  Give me a few days and I'll see what I can do.

What? This doesn't make sense. How does not giving a review, support the 'spread of superstition'?
