Overview

Former NASA scientist Dr. Reginald J. Exton presents a succinctly powerful case for the human origin of religions. Lists of events, scientific observations, and religious developments lead inexorably to the conclusion that humanity itself created gods and religions to shield itself from the unknown.

“My sincere hope is that the book will help to relieve people of their historical guilt and clarify the individual rights and responsibilities of all human beings,” Exton says. “These hopes are particularly meaningful at the beginning of the twenty-first century as two major religions again conduct crusades against one another, and the political arm of religion in the U.S. strengthens itself to secure by ‘democratic’ means what it cannot obtain by argument.”

Make the Break (If You Can) concludes with a positive, reality-based alternative to god-based religions that captures the best parts of the religious philosophies practiced today.

I wanted so much to like this book, but I came away very disappointed The treatment of the subject was so cursory that anyone with a foundation in atheism and skepticism will immediately be familiar with the brief critiques of theism presented in this volume. Anyone with a theistic viewpoint will be nonplussed by the shallow analysis of their belief system. At only 74 pages, the scope of the work is a mile wide and an inch deep. Spend 99c on Thomas Paine's marvellous book "The Rights of Man" and you will be much more intellectually rewarded for your efforts.
