Fifty Writers Question Religion

The Weekly Universe received the following today:

Think You Know God? Disinformation Takes on Religion as Only It Can!

Dispensing with theory and dogma, Everything You Know About God Is Wrong: The Disinformation Guide To Religion, goes where wise men have often feared to tread for fear of lightning bolts, stoning, or the tortures of the Inquisition. One thing’s for sure: after reading this book you’ll never look at religion in the same way again.

This massive book systematically reveals the distortions, myths, and utter weirdness that have been shoved down our throats by organized religions of all stripes, including Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, new religions, and others who want to keep their lucrative franchises intact.

Russ Kick has assembled an unprecedented arsenal of writers, reporters, and researchers to invade the inner sanctum for an unrestrained look at the wild and wooly world of organized belief.

Contributors include: Richard Dawkins, Neil Gaiman, Douglas Rushkoff, Erik Davis, H.G. Wells, Greta Christina, Paul Krassner, Nasrin Alavi and more!

Russ has been dubbed an “information archaeologist” by The New York Times, recognizing his work as one of the most effective independent researchers alive today.
