Facing Cancer Without GodeBook - 2014
This is a personal journal of an atheist, Matt Miller, facing death from cancer. It is not a "God-bashing" book. It is his philosophical musings about the sources of solace in atheism. He wrote it in the almost three years between his diagnosis of stage 4 non-small cell lung cancer, and his death in 2010. He describes his familial roots in skepticism and pragmatism and his own development during his travels around the world. He discusses his philosophical scaffolding and how it provided the support he needed to deal with his imminent death. With examples from Walter Mitty and Rambo, football, neurology, Camus, and pure fantasy, his wide-ranging and original thinking comes through in clear, uncomplicated, and often surprisingly funny prose.
