Humans have been suffering from an illusion, or self-deception for thousands of years. Ancient people experienced great fear, anxiety and discomfort from unexplained natural phenomena and from the hardships of a primitive life. To control these fears, they relied on defense mechanisms; with the unfortunate result, seen even today, of the widespread belief in an imaginary, supernatural being, known as God.
The God Insanity will reveal this belief as an illusion—a mere by-product of ancient self-defense mechanisms intended to explain a confusing, mysterious world. Looking at the example of the Christian belief system, author James Andre Blunt uses critical thinking and logic to dismantle and disprove all of the laws and concepts of biblical Christianity, leaving no gray areas. In addition, we will discover that there is nothing remotely similar or consistent between the teachings of the Bible and the modern laws and sociocultural ethics of the United States.
For too long we have been shackled to an unfounded belief system—one that has even been used to promote slavery and discrimination, among other unacceptable practices. Yet, with more knowledge about the world and its workings, and by critically examining the foundations of religious beliefs like Christianity, we can free ourselves from unconscious defense mechanisms and explore these timeless questions for ourselves.
