Atheist Manifesto:The Case Against Christianity, Judaism and Islam Onfray, Michel April 1, 2011
This is a very overlooked book within the genre of Atheism and Religious Criticism. An excellent deconstruction of the world’s three major Monotheistic religions.
From Amazon Reader Reviews…
“God won’t go away. But monotheism should erode: lest we increase ignorance and blood sacrifice. That’s Onfray’s thesis: “By aiming for paradise, we lose sight of earth. Hope of a beyond and aspiration to an afterlife engender a sense of futility in the present. If the prospect of getting taken up to paradise generates joy, it is the mindless joy of a baby picked up from his crib”.
