9780595399864: Time Frames and Taboo Data: A history of mankind's misdirected beliefs

Looking back across the millennia and assessing the search for the Great Answer, man's history would seem to demonstrate that "religion" is the name given to the plague of spirit that cripples humankind's higher potential. The most obvious symptom of religious infection is a paralysis of rational thought accompanied by delusions in which the absurd is accepted as reality. Outwardly there are often no visible signs of this lethal disease, but the natural free-flowing cosmic essence by which that "spirit" may embrace the universal is consumed by parasitical ideologies. Such religious factions are not, as these pages have shown, exactly the champions for moral conduct and ethical behavior as they claim. And the age-old pretence of religion being the standard bearer of ethics/morality is as trite and superficial and untrue today as throughout man's bloody history. This observation is shared by more than one historian, and here is a couplet to paraphrase this conclusion.If you can get people to believe in absurdities,You can get them to commit atrocities.That is as true today as it was one, two or three thousand years ago-and it pretty much sums up the message in these pages.

Book Description iUniverse, United States, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 226 x 154 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. History is sometimes regarded as impractical in this day and age, even though the realities we face are too often the outgrowth of manipulated interpretations of past events. Societies find this acceptable because just enough truth is incorporated into the accounts to disguise the myths that are being promoted; however, many important facts are omitted. This is especially true when a chronicler pretends to record spiritual objectives or guidance. There is always a measure of the unknown in any record, but it is predominant in faith accounts. If large portions of history are covered with deceit, then mankind is rendered incapable of understanding its higher potential. In Time Frames and Taboo Data: A History of Mankind s Misdirected Beliefs, author C. M. Houck examines these discarded facts and inspects the absurdities and hypocrisies of mankind s beliefs, in an effort to push the reader toward a better understanding of history.
