God Is Not Great

God Is Not Great ஁ Free Read Kindle @God Is Not Great ⚤ Kindle Author Christopher Hitchens ⚾ Hitchens, one of our great political pugilists, delivers the best of the recent rash of atheist manifestos The same contrarian spirit that makes him delightful reading as a political commentator, even or especially when he s completely wrong, makes him an entertaining huckster prosecutor once he has God placed in the dock And can he turn a phrase monotheistic religion is a plagiarism of a plagiarism of a hearsay of a hearsay, of an illusion of an illusion, extending all the way back to a fabrication of a few nonevents Hitchens s one liners bear the marks of considerable sparring practice with believers Yet few believers will recognize themselves as Hitchens associates all of them for all time with the worst of history s theocratic and inquisitional moments All the same, this is salutary reading as a means of culling believers weaker arguments that faith offers comfort false comfort is none at all , or has provided a historical hedge against fascism it mostly hasn t , or that Eastern religions are better nope The book s real strength is Hitchens s on the ground glimpses of religion s worst face in various war zones and isolated despotic regimes But its weakness is its almost fanatical insistence that religion poisons everything, which tips over into barely disguised misanthropy

God Delusion 2006 have questioned the existence of any spiritual being and met with enormous success Now, noted, often acerbic journalist Hitchens enters the fray As his subtitle indicates, his premise is simple Not only does religion poison everything, which he argues by explaining several ways in which religion is immoral, but the world would be better off without religion Replace religious faith with inquiry, open mindedness, and the pursuit of ideas, he exhorts Closely reading major religious texts, Hitchens points to numerous examples of atrocities and mayhem in them Religious faith, he asserts, is both result and cause of dangerous sexual repression What s , it is grounded in nothing than wish fulfillment Hence, he believes that religion is man made, and an ethical life can be lived without its stamp of approval With such chapter titles as Religion Kills and Is Religion Child Abuse Hitchens intends to provoke, but he is not mean spirited and humorless Indeed, he is effortlessly witty and entertaining as well as utterly rational Believers will be disturbed and may even charge him with blasphemy he questions not only the virgin birth but the very existence of Jesus , and he may not change many minds, but he offers the open minded plenty to think about June Sawyers Copyright American Library Association All rights reserved Westboro Baptist
