From the New Atheist arguments of Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins to the material observations of Lucretius, Epicurus, and Democritus, the discussion of what religion is and the role it plays in our lives is the single greatest dialogue we can have. Oh, Your god! is a compelling assertion that the entire enterprise of organized religion is a thing for which the world and our species would have been better without. Drawing from timeless philosophers, modern debates, historical events and current social climes, Joshua Kelly has compiled a series of observations that will aid any budding anti-theist in their study of religious malice and provide a solid insight into the evils of religion for those sitting on the cosmological fence. Examining the murders of Nigeria's "witch children" to the subversion of sexual emancipation to the essence of psychological slavery, the hypocrisy of fundamentalism, September 11th, the definition of marriage, the pseudo-morality of monotheistic mythology, and many other examples, this book is a comprehensive scrutiny of the evils that religion has inflicted on our persons, cultures, and our "cognitive liberation as evolved primates".
