Naturally this gave me similarly high expectations for a book that exposes the blatant hypocrisy & ridiculousness of religion in the C21st.
Needless to say I'm very pleased that this book is just as good if not better than the previous one.
Here are a few quotes that show what I mean by the absurdity of religion such as the impossible task of reconciling free will & an all-knowing god who knows down to the letter what will happen in your life.
"You cannot possibly have free will in a predetermined plan. Either there is no plan & free will or there is a plan & no free will." Ch IV P76
So if Christians for example truly believed in the above, murderers shouldn't be imprisoned because they are simply pawns executing God's plan by killing innocent people & rapists also should be free since the poor women (& men) should be grateful that they had sex against their own will and possibly having to pay for raising a bastard child.
This could go on & on but I think the above two should suffice in emphasing the incompatibility of free will & a plan executed down to the smallest detail by an all-powerful creator.Read more ›
The only problem with this book is some typos and the fact that the cover of my copy is curling and starting to lose its protective plastic coating. So what? say I. It is self-published and I bought it to enjoy the content, not to worry about the occasional error. I mean, it's not poetry!
As with the first book, the photos and illustrations add a fun touch to the text! Hilarious!
Here's a rundown of the contents of the book by chapter:
1. If god existed and he wanted to sum up his expectations of your relationship with him, this would be it. It's a legalese laden contract with god, including a version of the 10 commandments. Example: "X. CLIENT SHALL NOT DESIRE BELONGINGS OF OTHER CLIENTS. During time spent on Earth, CLIENT may notice that GOD, Inc. has provided other CLIENTS with material possessions, spouses, or circumstances that are superior to those of the CLIENT. CLIENT shall not desire anything that belongs to other CLIENTS of GOD, Inc. including, but not limited to, food, shelter, spouses, flat-screen televisions, or any other material possessions. CLIENT agrees to suppress all notions and emotions of desire based on observations of other CLIENTS."
2. A takeoff on belief in god as illustrated by belief in Lard Santa.
3. All about how christians can't agree on what god wants, but they still all think they know the answers anyway.

In the book, Christianity is nakedly exposed as a vestigial cultural appendage which is mired in an ancient backwater of barbarism. As the anthropologist Clifford Geertz called such allegiance, "primordial sentiments " toward religious communities above all others. In short, those who find this work blasphemous are encoded with a pathological smug certainty with a dissonant disregard of facts.
