Awesome book on philosophy and science

I read that yesterday in a rush. All 600+ pages of it. From all the books I read, Science and sanity is clearly the most intriguing one. There are so many aspects to general semantics that I don't know where to start. I am totally flabbergasted.

Interesting, will check it out.

Best book I ever read on science/philosophy was this one:
www.lulu.com/shop/bill-gaede/why-god-doesnt-exist/ebook/product-18652106.html | this one

Basically a giant epistemological deconstruction of every irrational/supernatural argument ever made in every field. I could pretty have only read this book and forgotten nearly every philosopher or article I'd ever read in the 10 years of interest beforehand, and I'd have it all covered in that one book. Epic.

Also "converted" me from agnostic/atheist to, well, just "thinker" I guess. For reasons explained within the book.
