    James a. Lindsay(Author) Victor J. Stenger(Foreword)
Infinity and God have been close bedfellows over the recent millennia of human thought. But this is James A. Lindsay's point. These two ideas are thought, mere concepts. Lindsay shows in a concise and readable manner that infinity is an abstraction, and shows that, in all likelihood, so is God, particularly if he has infinite properties.

This book is about math. It is about God. It is about stressing the importance of not confusing these two ideas with reality. Never the twain shall meet.

"A short and engaging read on the meeting of two huge ideas, infinity and God, that leaves us seeing both as abstract ideas that may have nothing to do with reality. Honest and accessible, Dot, Dot, Dot is a great little book to stretch your thinking." - Peter Boghossian, author of A Manual for Creating Atheists

"Timely, important and very readable, this book pulls the rug from under theists' feet." - Jonathan MS Pearce,The Little Book of Unholy Questions

"Read this to avoid making any more cardinal sins and learn how much math is an amazing human endeavor." - Aaron Adair, PhD, The Star of Bethlehem: A Skeptical View

  • By Johnny P on 7 March 2014

    Great book detailing the incoherence of notions of infinity with regards to God, from a mathematical point of view. This needed to be written because apologists consistently make mistakes in invoking meaningless or wrong ideas of infinity. Highly recommended.

    This is quite a good book, but I learned more about the mathematics of infinity than any detailed critique of those metaphysically inclined philosophers of religion. The critique was basic (anti-realist, stating and not proving that on the basis of this philosophy of mathematics talk about god shares a similar metaphysical constructivism - thus one cannot realise god from sophisticated logic about god). While all this is good, I found it frustrating not addressing sophisticated arguments such as those provided by Dombrowski, Brian Leftlow and Michael Almeida.
