Summary

Did you know that God forbids the tying of shoelaces on Saturdays? Or that humans emit a colorful aura that can be discerned only with a Third Eye? That bountiful harvest requires the flinging of a live goat from a church bell tower? That instead of wishing upon a star, we can wish upon a...cow? Well into the 21st century, our species continues to participate in beliefs and customs that seem more suited to the Bronze Age than the Information Age, some of which involve poisonous snakes, holy smoke, urine bubbles, crystals, tarot cards, aliens, costumed virgins, and, of course, an offering plate. Join Seth Andrews for a random romp across the planet and a humorous look at some of humanity's Sacred Cows.

Entertaining and informative

Also picked up the paper back and looking forward to reading that too!

Entertaining and irreberant galop through religion and it's many incarnations around the world.

Hits the nail on the head.

Seth Andrews look at the bewildering array of traditions around the world will amaze you and should force you to examine some of your own beliefs and customs with a more critical eye.
Well worth the time to listen.

A fascinating look

A fascinating look into the various, and often outrageous, traditions and beliefs around the world.
I particularly enjoyed the Krampus story.
