Within the tradition of Bertrand Russell’s Why I Am Now not a Christian and Sam Harris’s latest bestseller, The End of Faith, Christopher Hitchens makes without equal case against religion. With a close and erudite reading of the key non secular texts, he documents the ways by which religion is a man-made wish, a cause of dangerous sexual repression, and a distortion of our origins Within the cosmos. With eloquent clarity, Hitchens frames the argument for a more secular life in line with science and reason, by which hell is replaced by the Hubble Telescope’s awesome view of the universe, and Moses and the burning bush give option to the sweetness and symmetry
of the double helix.
