More than two centuries after the Age of Reason culminated in the French Revolution, modern society still operates based on assumptions and attitudes formed by our ancient myths. Propagated by organized religion, these myths not only hamper efforts to apply reason to our problems, but foster violent conflicts that threaten global security
Myths of the Tribe: When Religion and Ethics Diverge illustrates the negative historical impact of our major religions and their detrimental impact on modern society. Author David Rich demonstrates how centuries' old philosophy, doctrines, and belief systems plague our everyday lives, our political arena, and the way we function in the modern world.
As relevant today as it was when first published by Prometheus Books in 1993, Myths of the Tribe has been updated in its second edition with new data reflecting our views on religion and social mores in the twenty-first century.
