Advance praise for Dot, Dot, Dot!

My new book, Dot, Dot, Dot: Infinity Plus God Equals Folly, published by Onus Books, will be going live in just a few hours! This short post shares some of the advance praise the book has received from some kind notables, in addition to its lovely foreword by Victor Stenger.

"A short and engaging read on the meeting of two huge ideas, infinity and God, that leaves us  seeing both as abstract notions that may have nothing to do with reality. Honest and accessible, Dot, Dot, Dot is a great little book to stretch your thinking."
Peter Boghossian, author of A Manual for Creating Atheists

"Infinity is not only unbound in bigness, it is unbound in weirdness, destroying our intuitions, driving mathematicians to madness, and creating theological nonsense. Fortunately for us, James Lindsay can show the amazing features of the infinite without that many words, and staying very light on the equations. Along the way, he shows how the concept can be misunderstood and abused. Read this to avoid making any more cardinal sins and learn how much math is an amazing human endeavor."
Aaron Adair, PhD, author of The Star of Bethlehem: A Skeptical View

"God and infinity have much in common, most notably that they are abstractions conceptually devised by man in order to try to make sense of reality. They are a kind of map. And, as James Lindsay so adeptly points out, we must not confuse the map with reality. For too long (mathematical) Platonic realism has been allowed to underwrite belief in God. With excellent books, like the eminently readable Dot, Dot, Dot, that rug is being firmly pulled from under believers' feet."
Jonathan MS Pearce, author of The Little Book of Unholy Questions

Check out those fine books too!

Update: You can get the Kindle copy of Dot, Dot, Dot on Amazon at this link.
