Unabridged edition 2011 | 17 hours and 43 minutes | ISBN: n/a , ASIN: B005HXC9WW | MP3 128 kbps | 908 MB

This magisterial work (winner of the National Jewish Book Award and other honors) chronicles the 350-year history of the Jewish religion in America. Tracing American Judaism from its origins in the colonial era through the present day, Jonathan Sarna explores the ways in which Judaism adapted in this new context. How did American culture - predominantly Protestant and overwhelmingly capitalist - affect Jewish religion and culture? And how did American Jews shape their own communities and faith in the new world? Jonathan Sarna, a preeminent scholar of American Judaism, tells the story of individuals struggling to remain Jewish while also becoming American. He offers a dynamic and timely history of assimilation and revitalization, of faith lost and faith regained.

Denying History: Holocaust Denial, Pseudohistory, and How We Know What Happened in the Past (Audiobook) By Michael Brant Shermer, read by the author
Abridged edition 2009 | 5 hours and 31 minutes | ISBN: n/a , ASIN: B002SQH6SS | MP3 64 kbps | 162 MB

Denying History takes a bold and in-depth look at those who say the Holocaust never happened and explores the motivations behind such claims. While most commentators have dismissed the Holocaust deniers as antisemitic neo-Nazi thugs who do not deserve a response, historians Michael Shermer and Alex Grobman have immersed themselves in the minds and culture of these Holocaust "revisionists." In the process, they show how we can be certain that the Holocaust happened and, for that matter, how we can confirm any historical event.
Includes an extensive analysis of other pseudohistory claims, such as the denial of the "rape of Nanking", the claim that Aristotle stole philosophy from African philosophers, the belief that early civilizations were egalitarian and peaceful, the notion that the Phoenicians (or the lost tribe of Israel) discovered America, and many others.

Recent polls report that 96-percent of Americans believe in God, and 73-percent believe that angels regularly visit Earth. Why is this? Why, despite the rise of science, technology, and secular education, are people turning to religion in greater numbers than ever before? Why do people believe in God at all?
These provocative questions lie at the heart of How We Believe, an illuminating study of God, faith, and religion. Best-selling author Michael Shermer offers fresh and often startling insights into age-old questions, including how and why humans put their faith in a higher power, even in the face of scientific skepticism. Shermer has updated the book to explore the latest research and theories of psychiatrists, neuroscientists, epidemiologists, and philosophers, as well as the role of faith in our increasingly diverse modern world. Whether believers or nonbelievers, we are all driven by the need to understand the universe and our place in it. How We Believe is a brilliant scientific tour of this ancient and mysterious desire.

In Science Friction, best-selling author and Skeptic magazine publisher Michael Shermer pretends to be a psychic for a day...and fools everyone; as a psychologist and bicycle racer, Shermer reveals the science behind sports psychology; as a historian and evolutionary theorist, Shermer considers what was truly responsible for the mutiny on the Bounty; and as a son, Shermer explores the possibilities of alternative and experimental medicine for his cancer-ravaged mother. And a skeptic realizes that it is time to turn the skeptical lens onto science itself.
In each of the essays in Science Friction, Shermer explores the very personal barriers and biases that plague and propel science, especially when scientists push against the unknown. What do we know, and what do we not know? How does science respond to controversy, attack, and uncertainty? When does theory become accepted fact?

In THE CRASH OF 2016, Thom Hartmann describes a country not on the road to collapse, but in the midst of an economic implosion that could make the Great Depression seem like child's play. Our once-enlightened American political and economic systems have been manipulated to ensure the success of only a fraction of the population at the expense of the rest of us, a "for the rich, by the rich" system that is turning our Democracy into an ancient feudal kingdom and leading to policies that only benefit the highest bidder.
