Well, lately I have had a lot of time on my hands and haven't been spending it doing anything really productive. I was wondering if anyone here has any good book suggestions? However, not necessarily 'story' type books, but more of ones with educational value. I enjoy reading things along the lines of Philosophy, Religion and History. I enjoy learning regardless if I agree with it or not, so feel free to suggest anything.

I have a few suggestions.

But if you are bored and want something perhaps not so biased then try watching religious debates. Usually they are the best both sides have to offer.

I know you said education but I heard hunger games was good and it's only like 10$ new in paperback (just got a copy for the little one).

Do not attempt to juggle eight chainsaws. Do not attempt to juggle any chainsaws. Unless you are a juggler. A professional chainsaw juggler. A really, really good professional chainsaw juggler who does not fear chainsaw manglings.

No, definitely not on these forums. Not because I hold anyone here in any less esteem, but specifically because I do not think I represent the best of my own houses arguments. I am speaking of videos of debates between Harris v Craig or Hitchens v Wolpe. These guys are giants, and watching them will either affirm or crumble your knowledge of one side or another.

The entire reason I suggest them is to get the best of both arguments and not to be swayed . It is the reason why I read the Holy books at the same time as the books attacking them.

Got done watching The God Debate II with Harris vs. Craig... I must say that was very entertaining to listen to and glad you suggested it.

These aren't really educational, but I love anything dystopian...The Time Machine, Utopia, and A Brave New World. Fragments by Heraclitus is a poetic type of philosophy book you might enjoy!

Prometheus rising was one of the best books I've read so far to date. It has an introduction by Israel Regardie and Mr.Wilson does a great job summing up the circuits as proposed by Dr.Leary. Great book I'd recommend it to anyone here, cost me $6 used.
