Newly Released History Book Examines Religion’s Seven Biggest Liars
The World’s Seven Biggest Liars, by Author Richard F. Wright, was written for those who already know that religion ruins everything and there are no such things as deities, but need help expressing their doubt.
Wright explains in the Introduction that his wife figured out the nonsense of religion very early in life, at a time when he was embracing it; but, that as time went along he came to understand as she did that the truly natural condition for humans is atheistic. Religious belief is adopted as families, communities, and habit draw infants and children into the practices and protocols of religious observance. Without any opportunity for competing opinions, children have little chance to escape the cultural and religious pressures within their homes. Atheists usually start figuring it out during their teenage years, a time when it’s especially difficult to not fit in. Wright went from being a leader in the church activities to non-believer status as a secular humanist; but, it took some time to get there.
For others who have figured out that organized religion ruins everything and that there are no such things as deities, worthy of worship, the book is a roadmap to how seven notorious prophets have created a landscape that humankind can’t seem to escape, despite the evidence of science and increasing human intellect. Ironically, the publisher who put Wright’s first book into print refused to publish this book. It was “beyond our scope,” which Wright interprets to mean he doesn’t need the expected flack from other religious authors that he currently publishes.The book is excerpted on Wright’s website: http://www.TheWorldsSevenBiggestLiars.com and it’s available for purchase on Amazon.com as a paperback or through Kindle download.
