Harvard Divinity School Grad Indicts Religion For World’s Ills

ED: Is it any wonder
people are abandoning
there faith?
Religion, to serve man,
must not take away
our Faith and
Spiritual Development.
– Rev. Scott L. Newkirk

Vilcabamba, Ecuador (PRWEB) February 23, 2006 — Harvard Divinity School graduate and author Joseph R. Simonetta has released three companion books simultaneously that are a bold indictment of the world of religion: Religion, An Obstacle to Human Progress; The Skeptic’s Book of Religious Quotes & Anecdotes; and, Seven Words Than Can Change the World.

Simonetta writes, “One would have to have his head deep in the sand and his mind intoxicated with dogma not to see the endless problems associated with these old religions. The phenomenon of religion, with all its elaborate rituals, costumes and falsehoods, is likely the world’s longest, most magnificent, and pernicious charade. Humanity must be weaned off of this dogmatic, delusional, and divisive, war-causing form of intoxication.?

In a commonsense and uniquely refreshing approach, Simonetta lays bare the inconsistencies and incredibilities of traditional religion. Not only does he demonstrate that our major world belief systems are antiquated and dysfunctional, he ties them masterfully into seemingly unsolvable political, economic and environmental problems. In the end, he points to the direction that some of humanity is heading and that all of humanity must go.

Neale Donald Walsch, New York Times best-selling author (Conversations With God), describes Seven Words That Can Change the World as “The Formula. The Answer. The Way. A powerful book. Really remarkable. A totally empowering piece of writing.?
