There seems to be a widespread notion that belief is, in itself, a good thing, but in this book I argue that, for at least some people, freeing oneself from all belief systems brings a huge sense of relief. I illustrate this by describing my own experience of Roman Catholicism and Transcendental Meditation. An insider's view of religion and moving beyond religion.

Meet the Author

Professionally, I am a conventionally qualified medical doctor who has experience of some kinds of alternative medicine, but I am a self-confessed generalist and have written on subjects unrelated to medicine. In so far as there is a unifying theme in these books, it is sceptical and describes the progressive questioning and ultimate abandonment of belief systems. This emerges in my two books on religion and also in my critical account of the origin and development of homeopathy. My historical study of the sect of the Assassins is an examination of a fascinating set of religious ideas in mediaeval Islam, with relevance to modern religion-inspired terrorism.

Although I am now retired from clinical practice I continue to teach modern medical acupuncture to health professionals. My textbook for the courses I teach is available here.

Finally, I'm interested in computers and I have a small book about how to prepare your text for publication on Smashwords if you are, like me, a Linux user.

The author did not know religion too well, considering he grew up with it. Most of the book was about meditation, and how he wrote other books on meditation. He even went as far to say that evolution has formed our brains to speak languages....as well a made to worship. This book is not 'skeptical', 'humorous', or anti-theistic. It should be labeled under Christian.
