Religion

Overview

God emerges like a hologram in our consciousness and is falsely presented as the champion who will save us from death. Science, with its focused methodology, tells the true story.

God is the main character in religion, but he is a figment of the imagination. Humans experience consciousness like amnesia victims: We don't know where we came from or why we are here, and we fantasize that we keep on living after our bodies physically die.

Overview

God emerges like a hologram in our consciousness and is falsely presented as the champion who will save us from death. Science, with its focused methodology, tells the true story.

God is the main character in religion, but he is a figment of the imagination. Humans experience consciousness like amnesia victims: We don't know where we came from or why we are here, and we fantasize that we keep on living after our bodies physically die. Thus humanity turns to religion, a powerful source of consolation and comfort. Science, however, offers some more concrete answers.

Author Richard C. Johnson argues that God emerges as an adjunct of human consciousness, where he is conjured up in response to the isolation engendered by self-awareness. Huge conflict results, Johnson explains, because claims about God are made from doctrine rather than observation. The result of these conflicts has consistently been war. In an age of nuclear weapons and terrorism, religious conflict must be deconstructed by honest discussion. Johnson explores this seemingly impossible task and proposes methods by which it can be accomplished.

In Religion: The Failed Narrative, Johnson convinces us that irrational religion cannot guide us and that only rational science has proven to be a capable leader.
