About this title

Synopsis:

Rejecting the many magical solutions offered for human problems, Chester Dolan unmasks the folly that has passed for religion throughout history and the many dangers it poses to the human community. After recounting the hate and insecurity that religious systems have introduced in our lives, he urges that the world would be a far better place if we could exorcise our presumptous gods, reject the religion of the mystics, and realize that our destiny rests with us. Only with a discriminating use of reason can we marshall facts and establish procedures to guide human progress. Motivated by reason, kindness, and morality, we can regain not only our sanity, but the right to think and choose for ourselves.

From the Back Cover:

Rejecting the many magical solutions offered for human problems, Chester Dolan unmasks the folly that has passed for religion throughout history and the many dangers it poses to the human community. After recounting numerous examples of the fear and hate that many religious systems impose on people's lives, he argues that the world would be a far better place if we could exorcise our presumptuous gods, reject the religion of the mystics, and realize that our destiny rests with us. Rather than slavish adherence to sacred books and archaic superstitions, religion should mean, says Dolan, nothing more than a genuine fellowship among all people of good will united in mutual respect and cooperation. Only with a discriminating use of reason can we marshal facts and establish procedures to guide human progress. Motivated by reason, concern for others, and moral integrity, we can regain not only our sanity, but the right to think and the freedom to choose.
