By George H. Smith,Lawrence M Krauss

George H. Smith units out to demolish what he considers the main frequent and harmful of the entire myths devised through humans - the idea that of a preferrred being. With painstaking scholarship and rigorous arguments, Mr. Smith examines, dissects, and refutes the myriad "proofs" provided through theists - subtle, specialist theologians - in addition to the common non secular layman. He explores the historic and mental havoc wrought through faith more often than not and concludes that spiritual trust can't have anyplace within the lifetime of sleek, rational man.

"It isn't my function to transform humans to atheism . . . (but to) show that the assumption in God is irrational to the purpose of absurdity. If anyone needs to proceed believing in a god, that's his prerogative, yet he can now not excuse his trust within the identify of cause and ethical necessity."
