Book Description :

"Like a selfish gene or a parasite, the religion virus catches a free ride in the minds of our species, infecting our history and culture. What Guns, Germs and Steel did for anthropology, this book does for faith. It puts the pieces together into a fascinating, coherent model that makes sense! (Dan Barker, President, Freedom From Religion Foundation.) Craig A. James has written an accessible book on evolution and religion that manages to explain memetics while being both funny and touching. (Wes Unruh, author, The Art of Memetics, editor of alteratic.com.) Full of powerful, ground-breaking ideas, packaged in a deceptively simple, easy-reading style. James has created one of those rare books where, every few pages, I find myself thinking, "I need to send a copy of this to so-and-so." This is the most fun I've had reading non-fiction in a long time. (Phil Steele, Editor, Fragment and The Passion of Ayn Rand's Critics)"--From Amazon.com.

Book Description :

Why do some beliefs become extinct while others adapt and flourish? James shows us how genetic evolution and cultural evolution, though operating at different rates, are one and the same. Recent science has gone a long way toward explaining the origin of religious belief in evolutionary terms, but Craig James has cracked open the mystery of its tenacity. Religion does not exist for us, it exists for its own sake. Like a selfish gene or a parasite, the religion virus catches a free ride in the minds of our species, infecting our history and culture.

Book Description :

Dr. Darrel Ray, psychologist and lifelong student of religion, discusses religious infection from the inside out. How does guilt play into religious infection? Why is sexual control so important to so many religions? What causes the anxiety and neuroticism around death and dying? How does religion inject itself into so many areas of life, culture, and politics? The author explores this and much more in his book The God Virus: How Religion Infects Our Lives and Culture. This second-generation book takes the reader several steps beyond previous offerings and into the realm of the personal and emotional mechanisms that affect anyone who lives in a culture steeped in religion. Examples are used that anyone can relate to and the author gives real-world guidance in how to deal with and respond to people who are religious in our families, and among our friends and coworkers.

Book Description :

Why bother with the interpretive categories of biblical faith when in fact our energy and interest are focused on more immediate matters? The answer is simple and obvious. We linger because, in the midst of our immediate preoccupation with our felt jeopardy and our hope for relief, our imagination does indeed range beyond the immediate to larger, deeper wonderments. Our free-ranging imagination is not finally or fully contained in the immediacy of our stress, anxiety, and jeopardy. Beyond these demanding immediacies, we have a deep sense that our life is not fully contained in the cause-and-effect reasoning of the Enlightenment that seeks to explain and control. There is more than that and other than that to our life in God’s world!

Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

From any non-Christian point of view, the gospel does not make sense. Grace doesn't make sense. Grace doesn't add up. Why would Jesus come to be one of us, to pay a debt He did not owe, because we owed a debt we could not pay? Why would He do that? Free? No strings? What was in it for Him? Since the church first began, Christians have had trouble accepting God's grace. We have substituted holiness, discipleship, order, regulation, and a long list of things to avoid in place of God's free gift. The result is a "Bad News Religion" that drains the joy and life out of believers. Bad News Religion is a convicting, liberating exploration of how we, in the name of religion, have shifted the focus from the work of God to our ability to become worthy of salvation. The result is bondage and defeat. The key to success in the Christian life is not what we do, but who we know. Knowing God and knowing the fullness of His grace is a liberating experience. Most of us don't realize how we have robbed ourselves of experiencing the richness of God's grace.

Book Description :

I am writing from a place that is a long way from the halls of fame. Working through two video clips, "the god delusion" and "the virus of faith." Eminent scientist Richard Dawkins produced the clips several years ago. There has been some reviews done on these videos in the past. Each time a comment has been made--it is from either side of the 'fence.' What makes this book so different; is that I am neither a religious-fundamentalist nor a scientist. One day, we may see a follow-up video. The purpose of this book is to chip away at your worldview. Many believe that the religions of this world actually read and follow an instruction book; however, that is definitely not the case. I invite you to challenge your worldview. Come along for the ride and take a fresh look at the world's "number one bestseller."

How do we begin to think it through and cope with it?

Book Description :

In this short presentation the author delivers some hard-hitting blows to religious and spiritual beliefs, and this includes the belief in Darwin's Theory of Evolution as a secular religion embraced by mainstream science and Atheists alike. Many readers are going to take issue with the information presented in this book, particularly if they are wrapped up in any religious or spritual belief system or ideology. Don't let the size of the volume deceive you as this book has material enough to rock your perceptual world to its core. Although this is the second volume of the Beyond Second Cognition series of books, it can be read standalone for those who are unacquainted with the Bealls' work. This book is nothing if not controversial in its content, and it has the powerful potential to leave the reader very psychologically disconcerted. Yet, if the reader can take the information provided in this book and use it as a launching point for their cognitive advancement, the road that opens before them is pregnant with unlimited possibilities.

Book Description :

The world contains a bewildering variety of religions, each containing an equally bewildering variety of practices and beliefs. How have religions developed and become so widespread? Why do they matter so much to so many people? Why do some believe that their faith requires them to terrorize and kill others? Why do religions do harm as well as good? This is a book for those who ask such questions. Some of the answers we hear today seem entirely uncritical of religion, while others dismiss it as inherently toxic and destructive. John Bowker, one of the world’s most distinguished scholars of religion, delivers a timely analysis of the issues. He shows how recent research, particularly in the neurosciences, genetics and evolution, throws new light on what religions are and on the part they have played in human life and history. His explanation of why religions are a force for both good and evil offers hope as well as insight for all who want to understand the many complex interactions between religion and politics today.

Book Description :

Examines how the dynamics emerging from the pandemic affect our most vulnerable populations and shape a new religious landscape The COVID-19 pandemic upset virtually every facet of society and, in many cases, exposed gross inequality and dysfunction. The particular dynamics emerging from the coronavirus pandemic have been felt most intensely by America’s most vulnerable populations, who are disproportionately people of color and the working poor, the people whom the Bible refers to as “the least of these.” This book makes the case that the pandemic was not just a medical phenomenon, or an economic or social one, but also a religious one. Religious practice has been altered in profound ways. Controversies around religious freedom have been re-ignited over debates concerning whether government can restrict church services. Christian white supremacists not only defied shelter in place orders, but found new ways to propagate racist attacks, with their White Christian identity fueling their reactions to the pandemic. Some religious leaders, including those in communities of color, saw the virus as an indicator of God’s wrath, or as a divine test, and viewed altering their traditional practices to mitigate the virus’s spread as a weakening of faith. Religion, Race, and COVID-19 argues that there is a religious hierarchy in US society that puts “the least of these” last while prioritizing those who benefit most from white privilege. Yet these vulnerable populations draw on theological and religious resources to contend with these existential threats. The volume shows how social transformation occurs when faith is both formed and informed during crises, offering compelling insight into the saliency and lasting impact of religiosity within human culture.

"Are all religions losing adherents? On the surface, you might think everything is fine for Christian churches in America. Christianity is losing ground, but the trend is slow, just a percent here and there. But it turns out there is some very bad news hiding in the numbers..."Christianity is getting a lot bad press lately, and it's largely self inflicted. The headlines are filled with stories of pedophile priests, homophobia, Koran burning and sex scandals.But there is a much more perplexing question for American Christians: why is the Christian faith losing its grip on America? Why are more and more young people abandoning their beliefs ... forever? Why are atheists so emboldened that they've purchased giant "Good without God?" billboards all across America? Why have evangelical Christians taken such a dramatic right turn that mainstream Christians are embarrassed and alienated? Why is the separation of church and state more important than it's ever been in American history?Craig A. James, author of the popular The Religion Virus explores these and many other fascinating questions about modern religion, science, morality and society in this collection of thought-provoking essays.Each of the eight chapters explores one aspect of Christianity's decline in America. Bad Religion: slavery and stoning; biased news reports; how religion spreads diseases; bigotry in God's name; why faith makes Alcoholics Anonymous fail.The Decline of Christianity: a collection of the author's most popular articles about the slow but inexorable decline of Christianity (and all religion) in America.Morality: why secular morality is more moral and defensible than religious morality.Politics: keeping America secular and why it matters; creationism versus science in our schools; sex and drugs.Atheism: society's bigotry; the author's controversial "Atheists, get out of the damned closet!" blog; a challenge to religious scholars to debate honestly.Faith and Beliefs: Laurel's Wager (Pascal was wrong); homeopathy; miracles that aren't; little girls' dangerous pink Ouija boards. Science and Evolution: why Darwin is right; stem cell research; why comets make creationism look silly; immortality; science versus Mormonism.The Bible: God gets a bad grade; maybe ol' Satan wrote the Bible; biblical inerrancy; homosexuality.
