How Should We Make Decisions Without Direct Evidence?

by Lex Bayer Oct 31, 2014 0 Comments

An excerpt from our book has been posted on Hemant Mehta’s blog, the Friendly Atheist. You can read the excerpt here.

Hemant Mehta is the editor of Friendly Atheist, appears on the Atheist Voice channel on YouTube, and co-hosts the uniquely-named Friendly Atheist Podcast. You can read much more about him here.
