This hugely controversial work demonstrates convincingly how the world s three major monotheistic religions Christianity, Judaism, and Islam have attempted to suppress knowledge, science, pleasure, and desire, condemning nonbelievers often to death. Not since Nietzsche has a work so groundbreaking and explosive questioned the role of the world s three major monotheistic religions. If Nietzsche proclaimed the death of God, Onfray insists that not only is God still very much alive but also increasingly controlled by fundamentalists who pose a danger to the nature of human morality. Documenting the ravages of religious intolerance over the centuries, the author makes a strong case against the three religions for their obsession with purity and their contempt for reason and intelligence, individual freedom, desire, and the human body, as well as their disdain for women, sexuality, and pleasure. In their place, all three demand faith and belief, obedience and submission, extolling the next life to the detriment of the here and now. Tightly argued, this is a work that is sure to stir debate on the role of religion in American society and politics."show more

Our customer reviews

A brilliant work, exposing the hypocrisy, deceit and hatred of organised religions, and their disgraceful, murderously violent histories. A most important work that should be read by anyone who needs the nonsense espoused by these ridiculous, outmoded faiths to be dismantled and dismissed, as they surely must be before the human race can ever hope to live in more
