Format: Hardcover
I’ve read quite a few books that all say more or less the same things about the irrationality of “magical thinking,” but none of the others matches Onfray’s hatred of churches and the religious doctrines they propagate. Even the prose of THE END OF FAITH, by Sam Harris, who is never mistaken as a model of rhetorical restraint, lacks Onfray’s contempt.

But then, Europe has a history of state-supported churches (and church-supported states), so Onfray's venom makes more sense in that context. Still, I expect many North American readers will be put off by the intensity of his disdain.

Four stars for the rational content, not the emotional context.

His logic on description of different topics in this book, is not well founded and is not based on any objective fact. It is so disappointing...
