Summary

To know how to live, do we need God and religion, or does religion only produce wars, hatred, intolerance, and unhappiness? Does giving up God mean giving up morality, or can we finally live a peaceful and fulfilling life as atheists by following science and reason instead? Anthropologist Christopher Hallpike has spent a lifetime's research on the morality and religion of different cultures around the world and shows that trying to base a moral life on atheism and science actually has some very nasty surprises in store for us.

Where theory meets reality

Thorough analysis in an easy to digest format that dismantles Hitchens and Skinner. Halpike knows primitive societies having lived with some. He doesn't base his claims on romantic notions but observation.
