Is this better than 1YOS?
How much influence do you believe the book On The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or The Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life had on the ideologies of racial supremacy that found significant traction over the course of the 19th and 20th centuries?

Hey, armchair philosophers of /lit/.
I'm really curious about the idea of determinism. I know nothing whatsoever about philosophy really, but I've found it impossible to rationalize the idea of free will.

What are some good atheist/agnostic arguments against religion? I'm a Muslim so preferably something that challenges Islam, or Abrahamic religions in general.
Not a fan of the new atheists like Sam Harris, Hitchens or Dawkins since their arguments are usually based on extremism rather than faith itself and morality. Who were they influenced by and what were their notable works?
I want to start reading books, but I have no idea where to get them from. Paying for them is out of the question, and I can't find most of them on torrent sites.
How is your editing process? What do you do when you face a first draft?
