This looks like a better forum than I’ve found before. The working title of my book is Post Script to a Christian Nation. I know that could cause some emotionaly charged reactions. Without knowing anymore about the book, is your reaction necessarily negative since I’m not Sam Harris?
I don’t know if this reference will make it through forum regs, but if it does, you can see more about the book at secularholyman.com.
A lot of my subject matter deals with the likely path of religion’s origin earlier in our evolution. Much of the more recent path is getting a little heavily trodden. I think I’ve brought some new scenarios and possibilities to this enlarged/enhanced story. Another treatment of the the subject seems warranted to me as there are a number of us nonbeliever’s rock star scientists seem opposed to the idea that there’s much in the way of heritable genetics to the story of religion.
Another aspect of the book which may be even more controversial is a spiritual aspect. Not a supernatural realm, but what we have inside or what we feel becuase of what we’ve inherited. We may be just as spiritual as beleivers, but only we know there’s not a correspondent “worlkd beyond” so our fulfillment needs to come from another source.
Any writers out there who like to swap ideas?
I see the poll has cut off some text and I’m not finding a way to modify it. It ends with the phrase “since I’m not Sam Harris.”
