Atheism Debates, Claims and Answers in One eBook. 'The Atheist's Collection - The Good, the Bad, and the Absolutely Ridiculous'
by BWW News Desk - Jul 20, 2014

Many debates, specially about religion and Atheism, end in frustration on all sides because everyone thinks they are right but cannot find the right arguments or answers to the claims and the questions. Zoontek Publishing announces the release of Lig Heelal's first volume of The Atheist's Collection series. Atheist debater and philosophical writer Lig Heelal of New York, will make his debut eBook 'The Atheist's Collection - The Good, The Bad, and The absolutely Ridiculous' available for free to download on Amazon's Kindle store from this July 21st to July 25th. This is a launch promotion as an effort to introduce this first volume of The Atheist's Collection series to the public. The eBook is a collection of the most unbelievable claims and declarations from the faithful and Lig's answers to them. In this eBook, Lig Heelal makes his debates scripts available for readers from all stances and also includes a definition of Atheism, Theism and Deism in order to put to rest the confusion and prejudicial conceptions many people have about the three words. Lig Heelal, Atheist and philosophical writer, has been debating many believers on Facebook, especially from Christian religions and other diverse philosophies. In his first eBook, he is sharing bits of those debates and arguments with the general public. "This eBook is sharing pieces of my past debates with anyone interested. It's targeted to all three major groups of the beliefs arena... People on the fence (which is, in my opinion, another term for skeptics) can read the book and chew on the logic behind the discussions; Atheists who are missing some rebukes might find some answers they can use in their own discussions; and believers, particularly Christians who have the seed of inquiry hidden in their minds might reject my views at first but they will keep on reading IF they can identify their own silent questions among the pages," says Heelal. Feel free to search Amazon's Kindle store for "The Atheist's Collection." The eBook will be available for free from Monday, July 21st to Friday, July 25th. Lig can be reached for questions and comments via Facebook (facebook.com/ligheelal) (more...)
