The Hope Press book, Did Man Create God?, characterized by Michael Shermer as "...the definitive scientific reference on religion for some time to come." was awarded USABookNews book awards in two categories -- religion and science. Winner in Religion and finalist in Science.
In an era when the vice presidential candidate, Sarah Palin, believes in creationism, and President Bush favors teaching Intelligent Design, and when religious terrorists threaten the existence of Western civilization -- it is relevant to ask the question, "Did Man Create God?"
Dr. David Comings, an internationally known scientist-geneticist-physician, has written this book for readers who are interested in why humans are such a spiritual species; whether Intelligent Design is a valid alternative to Darwinian evolution; whether evolution is incompatible with religion; whether the big bang proves God exists; whether our sacred books were written by man or by God; whether God created man or man created God; whether humans can be moral without God; why a benevolent God allows evil to happen; whether we have a spiritual brain and if so where it is; whether our rational thinking brain can live in peace with our spiritual brain; and whether people of different religions can live together in peace.
Unlike recent books that call for the end of faith and religion, this book proposes that spirituality is genetically hardwired into a specific part of the brain, is pleasurable, is critical to the evolution and survival of man, and will never go away. It strives to allow readers to develop a rational spirituality in which the fact-based rational brain and the faith-based spiritual brain can live in peace. Intolerance, wars and terrorism based on religion make the assumption that one person's God is better than another's and that the sacred books are the literal word of God. A rational spirituality illustrates the fallacy of these assumptions and allows individuals of all religions to live in peace.
