ARE YOU WAITING FOR "HOLY MEN" FROM
THE WORLD'S RELIGIONS TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH?
WHEN WILL THEY MENTION THAT ....

  • The Ten Commandments are not the earliest list of rules for behavior, and they didn't have much influence on our legal system.
  • Tibet under the Dalai Lamas was anything but Shangri-La.
  • Jesus preached damnation, refused to heal a little girl, and repeatedly promised that he would return within a few decades - all according to the Bible itself.
  • Everyone's a skeptic - about other religions.
  • Irving Berlin - the legendary songwriter who gave us "God Bless America" and "White Christmas" - was an atheist who hated Christmas.
  • For centuries, theologians debated exactly how the Virgin Mary got pregnant. (Webmaster's Comment: And she was thirteen when she got pregnant.)
  • A Muslim movie triggered a major, though largely forgotten terrorist incident in the US, involving the armed takeover of three buildings in Washington, DC.
  • Some priests have been punished by their superiors for apologizing to the children they molested.
  • Failed prophecies are actually good for business.

FACE IT:
EVERYTHING YOU KNOW ABOUT GOD IS WRONG!

This massive book systematically reveals the distortions, myths, and utter weirdness that have shoved down our throats by organized religions of all stripes, including Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, new religions, and others who want to keep their lucrative franchises intact.

Russ Kick has assembled an unprecedented arsenal of writers, reporters, and researchers to invade the inner sanctum for an unrestrained look at the wild and woolly world of organized belief. Among the revelations inside:

  • Richard Dawkins shows us the strange, scary properties of religion.
  • Neil Gaiman turned a biblical atrocity story into a comic (that almost sent a publisher to prison).
  • Douglas Rushkoff tells us why traditional Judaism is facing a self-imposed death sentence.
  • Erik Davis looks at what happens when religion and California collide.
  • H.G. Wells has Jesus of Nazareth discuss his failures.
  • Greta Christina gives us comforting thoughts about death that have nothing to do with God.
  • Paul Krassner reveals his "Confessions of an Atheist".
  • Found Magazine compiles its greatest religious hits.
  • Nasrin Alavi looks at Iranian blogs for the possibility of an Islamic Reformation.

You'll also read exclusive, nerve-wracking reports from a Muslim students' conference, a weekend at an Osho retreat, and a Macumba ceremony in Rio, complete with animal sacrifice, And you'll get a front row seat at the Da Vinci Code's plagiarism trial, with previously unreported details.

Plus, this book includes rare, eye-popping photos of bizarre religious objects, ceremonies, and sites, including snake-handlers, pot-smoking children, explicit Hindu statues, and the women giving birth on Christianity's highest altar.

As if that weren't enough, this book also delves into:

  • The definitive explanation of why America is not a Christian nation.
  • The thinly veiled anti-Semitism in the Left Behind novels.
  • How the "big three" religions curse their enemies.
  • The Catholic Church's "gulags for women".
  • The "Mechanical Messiah" built into the nineteenth century.
  • The Sixth Dalai Lama's erotic poetry.

Dispensing with theory and dogma, Everything You Know about God Is Wrong goes where wise men have often feared to tread for fear of lightning bolts, stoning, or the tortures of the Inquisition. One thing's for sure: after reading this book you'll never look at religion in the same way again.

Russ Kick has been dubbed as "information archaeologist" by the New York Times, recognizing his work as one of the most effective independent researchers alive today. His previous anthologies include the bestselling You Are Being Lied To, Everything You Know Is Wrong, Abuse Your Illusions and Everything You Know About Sex Is Wrong. He is the author of 50 Things You're Not Supposed To Know, Volumes 1 and 2 and The Disinformation Book of Lists, among other books. He is the creator of the popular website TheMemoryHole.org.
