After her first two books about the stripper world and her memoirs, Erin Louis offers us her new self-help book promoting critical thinking and self-confidence through humor, challenging insights, and her own true stories. A cross between Fifty Shades of Grey and The God Delusion, Louis titillates as she enlightens readers. You will learn how to find the freedom to be yourself, find confidence to take risks, and change your life. This book will show you how. As she says, you don’t even have to get naked to do it, she’s done that for you.

Faith is the psychological process by which our brains generate our beliefs. That psychological process — Automatic Involuntary Subjective Evidence Weighing (AISEW) — is the same process that generates all of our beliefs whether they are “religious” beliefs like “God exists” or “God does not exist” or “secular” beliefs like “E=mc2” or “Shakespeare wrote Hamlet.” Since the AISEW process is automatic and involuntary, our brains automatically and involuntarily generate all of our beliefs. In other words, we don’t exercise conscious control over our beliefs. In other words, we don’t have free will.
Holy Smoke: How Christianity Smothered
the American Dream
By Rick Snedecker

Since the first Christian fundamentalists arrived in the 1600s on the shores of what would become the United States, Christianity has become increasingly embedded in the nation’s social and cultural fabric. This is completely contrary to the Founding Fathers’ original vision of America. Through their efforts, God is now in evidence everywhere in the country — on our money, in our schools, even in high-level-government officials’ speeches. But freedom of — and from — religion is the American promise to all its people whatever their belief — or disbelief.
