Buckleys Testament by Bryan Scriven

Buckleys Testament by Bryan Scriven

Edit The book targets people who are already atheists. Deciding that one no longer believes in god can be a dramatic choice. The case of Ayaan Hirsi, the author of Infidel, comes to mind; she was born a Moslem in Somalia. In the book she wrote that she no longer believed in god. Renouncing one's religion is a serious crime in Islam and she is now rejected by her family and pursued by Jihadis, out to kill her. People, from less extreme cultures, face somewhat similar problems. Now that they no longer believe, what are they to tell their children, parents or partners? The cliché is that their Life is at a Crossroads, but there are no roads - no valid choices - they are in front of an empty plain. This book makes a path across that plain and gives non-believers a religion without god, based on a proper understanding of Evolution and Conscience. The book is written in the form of an everyday pub conversation between the author and Buckley, an imaginary Indian guru. It takes place in Nairobi, Kenya. It is lively, informative, enjoyable and easy to read.
