George fV. foote


A collection of 51 short essays by George William Foote, who in May 1881 founded

the magazine "The Freethinker", which is still published (online) today. In the first

issue, Foote writes: The Freethinker is an anti-Christian organ, and must therefore be

chiefly aggressive. It will wage relentless war against superstition in general, and

against Christian superstition in particular.

The essays of this collection were previously published in "The Freethinker" over


more than 10 years, and detail Foote's views on religion and Christianity. He writes


about as diverse topics as specific stories from the Bible, the devil, blasphemy and


heretics, miracles, the weather, and the view of Christianity on women. What unites

these essays is Foote's conviction that atheism is the logical and natural position with




respect to all religion and gods.
