God is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything

Description:
Christopher Hitchens, described in the London Observer as "one of the most prolific, as well as brilliant, journalists of our time." takes on his biggest subject yet the increasingly dangerous role of religion in the world.
With his unique brand of erudition and wit, Hitchens describes the ways in which religion is man-made. "God did not make us," he says. "We made God." He explains the ways in which religion is immoral: We damage our children by indoctrinating them. It is a cause of sexual repression, violence, and ignorance. It is a distortion of our origins and the cosmos. In the place of religion, Hitchens offers the promise of a new enlightenment through science and reason, a realm in which hope and wonder can be found through a strand of DNA or a gaze through the Hubble Telescope. As Hitchens sees it, you needn’t get the blues once you discover the heavens are empty.
