Overview

Religion is a disease that has repressed and retarded learning, knowledge, education and the betterment of humanity for more than four thousand years. Jack Kolinski wants you to help him find a "cure" before religion does any more damage to our children and grandchildren. Religion claims "the Devil's greatest trick was convincing us he does not exist." Jack responds that the devil, an imaginary being without existence, much less any power over us, is quite literally "nothing" and has done nothing, especially when compared to the murder, genocide, witchhunts, crusades and repression of knowledge and science religion---a "real" institution with an imaginary friend telling it how to proceed--has perpetrated on humanity as part of its colossal fraud. "Do exactly what we tell you and give us LOTS of your money and don't worry about improving your miserable lives here on Earth because after you die , if and ONLY IF, you do what we tell you, you will get to stare at god for all eternity." Such a deal! Religion has been dying slowly but surely for the past three hundred years but it is no longer acceptible to allow it to pretend it still has relevance in the modern world. It does not but as a self-sustaining multi-billion dollar industry it will not go away quietly or any more quickly than we demand of it. It is time to "make your dissent known." It is time to take a stand for knowledge and against ignorance and superstition masquerading as something noble and ennobling when religion and god-myths have not an ounce of relevance, integrity, concern for humanity or any other positive attributes. Did I mention how funny this book is? Buy it just for the humor content and you will not be disappointed. You may also realize there is a vibrant, life-affirming, life-loving atheist within you yearning to breath freely without the smog and rancid, putrified stench of religion and the god-myth. The life you save and liberate may be not just your own, but your children's and their children's and their children's. Once you free yourself from the debilitating fog and silliness of the supernatural, you will want to free as many others similarly situated as you are able. How To Cure Religion will help you to free others just as you freed yourself. MAKE YOUR DISSENT KNOWN!

Meet the Author

Jack Kolinski is a retired trial attorney living in The Villages in central Florida. He grew up in a large, loving Catholic family before turning to the dark side, as evidenced by virtually all of his books (according to some people!). He attended Catholic schools through college at the University of Detroit where he obtained his B.A. (summa cum laude) and M.A. simultaneously in 1972. He graduated from the University of Michigan Law School with honors in 1975. In addition to numerous excellent legal briefs and articles of a slightly more serious "How did that huge stick get there?" nature (He's REALLY good at that stuff too!), he has authored The Bible (According to Jack) Part I The Old Testament, The Bible (According to Jack) Part II The New Testament (both available here at bn.com and Baker's Dozen, "Sinister" (Left Handed) Memories of Growing Up in a Large, Loving Family, a middle-aged middle son's tribute to the two best parents in the history of the world and a heartfelt, touching, hilarious memoir about growing up with his twelve brothers and sisters, some of whom are still speaking to him.
