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.
True narrow mindedness
Again, the author attacks man’s religions because he hasn’t any case against the one true and living God who created the heavens and the earth.
Man’s religions are man’s attempt to reach God: Rome Catholicism and Islam. Both of these religions have killed their offenders.
The true God has reached down to us through His Son and provided a way, a relationship with Him.
Mankind is basically evil and will always destroy themselves, but the one true God gives us life.
Unfortunately, the author literally can’t see the forest for the created trees.
Thus, he foolishly attacks God.
It’s really a waste of valuable reading time.
