Allah, Jesus, and Yahweh offers with the ethical and highbrow harm attributable to religion—the topic of a lot of today’s headlines. there were at the very least 5 significant spiritual invasions from Asia into Europe. particularly, the center East turns out a digital hatchery for religion and fanaticism. It’s the birthplace of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam let alone the sooner Zoroastrianism and the a lot later Baha’ism plus a plethora of adlescent cults and lunacies. The parlance fashionable for this current invasion is a conflict of civilizations—East as opposed to West! yet this isn't totally the case. there's a conflict, yet now we have pressured the fighters. Many within the West don't intend to struggle for the maintenance of Christianity; a few within the East think a similar approximately Islam. What we'll guard is freedom, democracy, and the values of the Enlightenment as opposed to submission, dictatorship, and the excitement of the hive brain. A tremendous conflict of beliefs is underway among the Enlightenment and the military of the Night—those who think they've got absolute sure bet with out proof.

There is a tide within the affairs of fellows and ladies, and we're afloat on an enormous wave of ethical and rational feedback of faith. Witness The God fable via Richard Dawkins, God isn't really nice through Christopher Hitchens, the top of religion by means of Sam Harris, and Breaking the Spell via Daniel Dennett. Allah, Jesus, and Yahweh takes a deeper view of time and a extra funny Mark Twain narrative procedure than those authors. It starts off in September 480 BCE on the conflict of Marathon—the first Asiatic non secular invasion—and strikes via background correct as much as Ayaan Hirsi Ali and beyond.

When talking of faith, Nobel laureate Steven Weinberg stated it most sensible to the recent York occasions, on April 20, 1999:

With or with no faith, you are going to have strong humans doing good stuff
and evil humans doing evil issues. yet for stable humans to do evil issues,
that takes religion.

Religion is sure bet with no evidence; technology is facts with out sure bet. From faith to technological know-how, it's been a protracted night’s trip into mild. Come, carry my hand, stroll with me via those pages, and notice the distinction and the horror we've got created.
