Incredible Read !

The author uses logic , science , philosophy , and wit to lay out an iron clad case in favor of faith. Atheists who are intellectualy honest would have a rough time mounting a defense.

An articulate exposition but . . . .

Mr. D'Souza's description of the impact of Christianity in the history of the world is persuasive. He tends to gloss over the failings of the church where its warts are all too apparent, however, in order to minimize claims that organized religion in general and Christianity in particularly are the cause of much suffering in the world. As only one example, D'Souza acknowledges the horrors of the Spanish Inquisition but attempts to downplays its impact, claiming that the Church did not target Jews but only those who had claimed to convert to Christianity but in fact still practiced their original faith. He totally ignores why so many Jews and Muslims converted or claimed to convert to Christianity in the first place - after the Spanish/Christian conquest of Granada from the Moors, King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella dispossessed all Jews and Muslims from their property and drove tens of thousands from their homes and out of Spain altogether. Thus, to say that the madness of the Inquisition was limited to lapsed Christians is blatantly misleading and only adds fuel to the fire that rages between the fundamentalist Christians/Muslims/Jews on the one hand and the fundamentalist atheists on the other. This discussion is best served by a more balanced presentation of the facts.
