history of religion

January 21st, 2007 by amy

I’m reading “The End of Faith” by Sam Harris lately (excerpts ) and the spread and influence of religion has been on my mind a lot.

It seems that if our species ever eradicates itself through war, it will not be because it was written in the stars but because it was written in our books; it is what we do with words like “God” and “paradise” and “sin” in the present that will determine our future.
