Beyond All Religion: Beyond Mythical and Outrageously Forged Religious Origins and Scriptures and Practices That Support Intolerance, Violence and Even War, a Peaceful World Awaits by Samuel Butler (Paperback / softback, 2012)
This book is about the consequences of religion more than whether Christ rose from the dead (Krishna, Mithras, Osiris, Attis of Phrygia, Dionysus, all of whom besides being born on December 25th from a virgin mother, died and were resurrected, except for Mithras - who ascended directly without dying!) or whether the text of the verses of the Qur'an correspond exactly to those revealed to Muhammad directly as the words of God, delivered to Muhammad through the angel Gabriel.. It is more focused on how religious scriptures and writings have been misused to harm, torture or kill others who don't believe, or used for justification to do what most rational persons would consider evil. How is this for religious intolerance? Rabbi Yaacov Perrin said, One million Arabs are t worth a Jewish fingernail. Muhammad married a 6 year old girl. Joseph Smith, the founder of Mormonism had 24 wives, one was 14 years old. Smith was convicted of fraud (of being an imposter - a con man), in a court of law.. Then he wrote The Book of Mormon... The story of Moses is patterned after the story of Sargon the Great. Moses did t exist. Christianity was invented for political purposes by the Roman Emperor Constantine ( The Great ) in 325 A.D. based on the myth of Mithra (Persian savior god born on December 25th).. Do a web search on: How Christianity was Invented: The Truth!, without the quotes. Constantine's friend, Eusebius (Bishop of Caesarea in Palestine) has been described as the first thoroughly dishonest historian of antiquity. He is also described as The Father of Church History. Destruction of previous conflicting documents and edifices followed, including the destruction of the Great Library of Alexandria. This book is an attempt to create awareness of the true origins and the fraudulent and forged self-serving writings of the main religions. Their purpose is to control and mislead us to follow them, without question, essentially putting us in a prison in our own minds. Like the elephant with the rope around one foot, it is easy for us to break free, but we don't kw it. This book is an attempt to encourage us to follow an alternative, a humanitarian secular ethical road moving beyond all religion. The orgins of the main religions are shown to be copycats of previous myths, with outrageous fraud and forgeries exposed. Covers all four major religions.
