Seven great myths of organized religion: A closer look
Over the centuries, billions of people have fallen prey to religion run amok. How many Jews and Gypsies suffered in Nazi concentration camps while churches in Germany turned their heads? How many people were murdered in the Crusades during the middle ages–in the name of God?
- Some religious leaders seem to tell us that we’re not smart enough or good enough to discover God on our own. Who says?
- If God is good and perfect, why is there so much evil and suffering in the world?
- How can anyone rely on the Bible for answers, if it’s just a loose translation of ancient myths anyway?
- How can we trust a religion that has advocated slavery and the subjugation of women throughout history?
These are serious questions-hot potatoes that nobody wants to touch. So I wrote a 7-day course called “The Seven Great Lies of Organized Religion.”
