Some people believe that crushed rhino horn can cure a range of illnesses and is even viewed as an aphrodisiac in Traditional Asian Medicine. However, the rhino horn is comprised of keratin, the same material as our fingernails and has no medicinal value. As a matter of fact, if rhino horn proved to have medicinal benefits, it would mean that we too can acquire these effects by biting our own fingernails! Unfortunately, this ill-conceived notion is the reason why rhinos are being hunted to extinction. Look at what belief can make people do.

How can we subscribe to the belief of a God when we do not prescribe the same method of critical thinking imposed upon Santa Claus to religion as well? We depart on a guided thought experiment to understand how religion came to be, why religion has been a mainstay in modernity and what armamentarium to use in our fight against religious zealots.

If you are a theist, the purpose of this book is to reason you out of something you had no reason to believe in the first place. If you are already on the fence, I look to burn down that structure. As I plant the flag for all to see, we will journey through fables, morality, science, and sin and verify if religion can, in fact, be eradicated.
