From the Publisher
We all view the world from the individual stance we assume as a result of our social status, education, and culture. None of us can see the whole picture at any one time, for our minds are not constructed for that purpose. Each time we look at a particular facet of any problem, we do so from the position dictated by the ever changing requirements of our lives. This book begins at the time when the first gene packages that were destined to become humankind developed awareness, and thereafter traces the origins of faith and religion as it evolved through abuse and abusiveness into the monolithic confidence trick it presents to humankind today.
