By Peter Heinegg

Even because the variety of unbelievers keeps to upward thrust, faith in the US nonetheless will get unwarrantably reliable press. The tenets and teachings, besides the fact that nonsensical, of every and each “community of religion” will not be attacked. Secular teachers who may 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 imperative spiritual notion of the “sacred” proves, upon nearer inspection, to be fictitious. The understandably well known “holy” occasions, areas, deities, peoples, books, legislation, and eventualities for the afterlife are fantasies projected into daily adventure via humans trapped in time and unwilling to simply accept their very own transiency and long term insignificance. This e-book surveys many of the conventional “fortresses” of the sacred and reveals all of them empty and indefensible.
