Published by Xlibris
Never in the history of humanity has Orthodox religions been so out-of-touch with reasonable people. Religions have not learned from over two thousand years of repeated failures and bad choices. Reasonable people understand it is inconsistent to kill for the sake of peace; it is a contradiction to speak of love and choose hate; and it is impossible to have peace with violence.
How much longer can we accept orthodox religion’s definition of happiness as it manifests empty rewards, deceptions, inconsistencies, and egocentric goals? How long can we flounder in this emotional, intellectual, and spiritual wasteland before we destroy all righteousness?
Tom Dickerson openly examines orthodox religion’s history of human rights failures, inconsistencies, abuses, and atrocities according to their choices, not their rhetoric. This book does not deny god, nevertheless, it strongly questions the validity of Western Religion’s concept of an omnipotent, righteous, compassionate, domineering, vengeful, and child-like god.
This book will educate, shock, and provoke the reader; as it openly advocates replacement of orthodox religion’s strict dogma with exercises, introspection, critical thought, meditation, personal balance, and freedom of choice. Every person can come to understand orthodox religion’s evilness and achieve self-awareness with personal balance and acceptance of responsibility. Personal balance, a foundational element of a positive holistic life, is available to all people willing to open their minds to reason.
You are the creator of your destiny.
