God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything
Christopher Hitchens, one of the most brilliant and prolific journalists of his time, according to the London Observer, tackles his biggest subject - religion's increasingly malevolent role in the world.
Hitchens is known for his unique brand of intellect and wit, and this shines through in his descriptions of religion. He asserts that god is manmade and goes on to explain the various ways in which religion is immoral with examples like indoctrination of children, sexual repression and the proliferation of violence and ignorance. He also holds religion responsible for a distortion of what evidence has established to be our origins, as well as the cosmos.
Hitchens suggests a new and true enlightenment, one that is brought by science and reason, and spoke of a realm in which there is hope and wonder not in the surreal but in a strand of DNA and in gazing at the sky through the Hubble Telescope.
