A sharply written treatise dangerous for the weak of faith. --Kirkus Review
MEULEBEKE, Belgium (PRWEB) January 03, 2017
In “God – Fact or Fiction: A Plea for Humanism and Atheism” (published by AuthorHouse UK), author Luke VandenBerghe examines the existence of God. Drawing from philosophy, science, history and canonical religious texts, VandenBerghe argues that there is no evidence that suggests God exists. The author is embarking on a marketing campaign to expand the book’s reach.
“When the greatest minds on Earth declare that the existence of God is not a reasonable prospect, it is the opportune time for us to reflect on the matter of religion and the role it has played in our six-thousand-year-old civilizations, its mythological origin, and its use and necessity,” says VandenBerghe.
The author hopes his book will help readers who may be questioning the validity of religion conclude that God is an invention of man — not the other way around. VandenBerghe stresses the importance of encouraging others to reconsider their supernatural beliefs, but advises readers not to underestimate the power faith holds over many believers.
“The reality is that it will be of enormous difficulty to rally people to think in depth,” he writes. “But this must not keep us from beginning to convince our fellows of the necessity of applying humanism to further the cause of the advancement of Homo sapiens.”
