This book is about the consequences of religion more than whether Christ rose from the dead (Krishna, Mithras, Osiris, Attis of Phrygia, Dionysus, all of whom besides being born on December 25th from a virgin mother, died and were resurrected, except for Mithras - who ascended directly without dying!) or whether the text of the verses of the Qur’an correspond exactly to those revealed to Muhammad directly as the words of God, delivered to Muhammad through the angel Gabriel.. It is more focused on how religious scriptures and writings have been misused to harm, torture or kill others who don’t believe, or used for justification to do what most rational persons would consider evil. Christopher Hitchens puts it not so “mildly” as he claims he does when he says “Religion poisons everything”, and “Religion Kills” [2]. Included are some religious cover-ups such as the invention of Christianity, based upon numerous previous myths and outrageous forgeries accomplished around and after 325 A.D. for political purposes ordered by Emperor Constantine and accomplished by his friend Eusebius (Bishop of Caesarea in Palestine) who has been described as "the first thoroughly dishonest historian of antiquity". Destruction of previous conflicting documents and edifices followed, including the destruction of the Great Library of Alexandria.
