Even because the variety of unbelievers maintains to upward thrust, faith in the US nonetheless will get unwarrantably sturdy press. The tenets and teachings, despite the fact that nonsensical, of every and each “community of religion” will not be attacked. Secular lecturers who could by no means be stuck in a synagogue, church, or mosque seldom fail to show up politically right reverence for the creeds, codes, and cults of the spiritual. regrettably, the relevant non secular notion of the “sacred” proves, upon nearer inspection, to be fictitious. The understandably well known “holy” instances, locations, deities, peoples, books, legislation, and eventualities for the afterlife are fantasies projected into daily event via humans trapped in time and unwilling to simply accept their very own transiency and long term insignificance. This e-book surveys a few of the conventional “fortresses” of the sacred and unearths all of them empty and indefensible.
