Initially, I was skeptic of the book given my initial interactions with the author. I decided to have an open mind and read Bamboozled!. The read started out with a brief history of BCE encounters before delving into Roman history. Mr. Aldred makes a strong argument about the ways and whys of the Church. The Church's true intentions. For me, the most powerful part of the book was Mr. Aldred's use of words against the Church in court. There is power in words.
Given a person's belief system, you will walk away having questions about the beginnings of the human race, the Catholic Church, the Judicial system. Questions that will compel one to delve deeper into their selves and re-examine who they are.
Anybody who reads this book with a sincere mind can feel the passion flowing from every page of this book. Tim is juicing with determination to speak his truth on this issue of religious bigotry.
There are two portions of this book, the first covering Sumerian history, the oldest civilization in the world; their gods and their interpretation of world events during the world's first civilization. Their explanation of how mankind was created is fascinating and hopefully will encourage all readers to learn more about Sumerian history.
The latter half discusses many of the glaring errors in the bible and how Christendom ultimately is used as a tool to mislead many of its followers.
Again, this isn't for everyone. Those who are content with Sunday service in church and passing the collection plate should stay clear of this book -- it may wake you up.
I'm glad I read his ideas; I'm glad I questioned my religious beliefs; I refuse to belittle anyone because of THEIR beliefs! Mr. Aldred shouldn't use intimidation as a tool for his acceptance: just let the information speak for itself. Of course, then you have to own up to the fact that you're stating just what YOU believe and that's why there are miniscule references or footnotes to back up YOUR belief.
While you may or may not wholistically agree with its contents, Bamboozled will forever change your relationship and view of the bible as well as your faith. Excellently researched and written, Bamboozled is a welcomed addition to any reader's literary treasure chest.
