    No value to atheists

    I consider myself a well read atheist and was sold on this book by the positive reviews it had received. I found it to have no value. Although the author claims to be an atheist, the theories set forth in this book are a mixture of anti-Semitism, Wicca and Buddhism. The author spends a good portion of the book preparing the reader for the 'truth' yet, when that 'truth' is finally revealed, it has so little impact that it can easily slip right past you. Max's 'truth' is that Jesus was the leader of an atheistic movement started by John the Baptist. Unfortunately, he doesn't support this with any facts or any convincing arguments. Although he completely dismisses the books of Moses as fabrications, he takes events from these very books, weaves grand fictions into them and arrives at the 'truth'. This book is full of contradictions, jumped-to conclusions, baseless claims, and historical inaccuracies. One of the oddest claims is that Nature, the true god, released HIV upon the world to defend itself from the pollution caused by too many people. He suggests segregating all HIV infected people into modern-day leper colonies. The cruelest joke of all will be revealed to all that read this just wasted a few days for nothing!

    All Must Read!!!

    This book is a must for anyone. For believers in religion and non-believers. The truth is here. It's about time that it's revealed. I truly believe this book will change the world. It changed my life and I'm so thankful for it. I've never been happier. Max King knows his stuff and makes it easy for you to understand. It's very easy reading but packed with enormous power that will leave you mind boggled. Buy it now!

    Very well written from someone very knowledgeable of the subject matter. I would reccomend it to those who are already atheists like myself, or anyone questioning their beliefs.

    This is not the book for the weak-minded. It's chock full of criticism and shocking facts that most people won't believe. In fact, most people would be appalled by them. But you have to think your way through this book. Despite the author's occasional repetitiveness and less than perfect grammar, his point comes through loud and clear. If you don't want an intellectual exercise, don't buy this book. But if you're curious or think you can handle it, buy it in a hurry. It is that shocking; buy it for yourself to see!! It has changed the way I look at life. I loved it!!!
