Beschreibung:

The Seduction of Religion offers an illuminating and provocative guide to the religions of the world, focussing on the irrationality of religious beliefs. The point of this book is not to preach atheism so much as it is to encourage its readers to reflect more carefully on why they believe what they believe. Every religion, thinks it is the true religion. But clearly they cannot all be right. The Seduction of Religion places each of the religions in its historical context and examines some of their most important doctrines in the light of reason and common sense. At the same time, it treats its reader to a host of amusing facts and anecdotes about the various religions that make the book enjoyable to read. At the heart of the book is a paradox: All religions claim to be the one true religion, but if any one of them is right then all the others are wrong. The Sedcution of Religion introduces its readers to the fascinating history of religions -- a history that is the outworkings of this thought-provoking paradox.Paul Singh is an American scientist, philosopher and a physician. He is a scholar of western and eastern intellectual traditions. He is the author of Discovering Our World: Humanity's Epic Journey from Myth to Knowledge and The Great Illusion: The Myth of Free Will, Consciousness and the Self.
