In this book I discuss some aspects of religion from a non-religious point of view. I do not aim to persuade you to give up your religion. If it satisfies you, that's your business and none of mine.
I believe that everyone is entitled to make their own decision about religion without being forced or coerced either for or against by other people. That is, it must be their own free decision to adopt or reject religion.
Much of what is said about religion is lies, or is based on belief which is questionable, or is a rejection of the truth. I don't believe that any of those is a good basis for accepting religion. A lie is never a good reason for doing anything. A decision, to be or not to be religious, which will affect one's whole life, should be based on the truth not on lies or mis-information.
My intention is to give you a different point of view on some religious topics that might make you stop and think. If I can start you thinking about your religion and why you are a believer, then I shall have achieved my aim in compiling this book.
If you aren't religious, then perhaps this book will give you a different viewpoint about some religious topics. Perhaps it will give you something to think about, too.
In other words, I want to make you think about religion, what it involves and entails. If I can start you thinking about it then I will have achieved my aim in putting this book together.
An author can ask for no greater reward than that his readers find his work worth thinking about. I hope that you find mine worth at least a moment's passing thought.
