Did you know God forbids the tying of shoelaces on Saturday? Or that humans emit an color aura which can only be discerned with a Third Eye? That bountiful harvest requires the flinging of a live goat from a church bell tower? That instead of wishing upon a star, we can wish upon a...cow? Well into the 21st century, our species continues to participate in beliefs

Overview

Did you know God forbids the tying of shoelaces on Saturday? Or that humans emit an color aura which can only be discerned with a Third Eye? That bountiful harvest requires the flinging of a live goat from a church bell tower? That instead of wishing upon a star, we can wish upon a...cow? Well into the 21st century, our species continues to participate in beliefs and customs that seem more suited to the Bronze Age than the Information Age, some of which involve poisonous snakes, holy smoke, urine bubbles, crystals, tarot cards, aliens, costumed virgins and, of course, an offering plate. Join Seth Andrews for a random romp across the planet and a humorous look at some of humanity's sacred cows.

Meet the Author

Seth Andrews is an author, video producer, radio host, public speaker and host of one of the largest online secular communities in the world. Once a faithful member of the flock, Seth ultimately parted ways with fundamentalist Christianity and now directs a more satirical eye toward "sacred" claims and customs. With a mix of humor and heart, he reminds his audience that ideas (even those considered untouchable) are fair game for scrutiny, and that those claiming The Answer should prepare themselves for a few more questions. After all, it's only when we stop questioning that we stop discovering.

Interesting stories relating to the absurd beliefs of religions. Fun book to have in your library in your journey (Run! as fast as you can) away from religious belief.

I purchased and blazed through it! Seth is a great story teller and I cant help but hear that velvety smooth voice (from The Thinking Athiest podcast) in my head as I read this informative lighthearted look into religion, odd rituals, and strange customs.
