|About the Book|
For far too long across the modern world, intellectuals have ignored religion as an irrational belief. They’ve kept religion out of intellectual discourse. In intellectual circles, science, technology, politics, history, and even the life of celebrities are often given far more importance than religion. Consequently, religion has been left to the whims, fancies, illusions, and above all beliefs of religious leaders to propagate and preach. For lack of alternatives, the majority of humans are forced to follow the interpretation of God preached by these religious leaders. It is high time intelligent people took charge and led religion. Religion, an idea that impacts the lives of billions of people all over the world, is too important to be left in the hands of religious believers who keep proclaiming the existence of a God in the heavens, waiting to punish each of us in the afterlife. These believers have hijacked religion to propagate their belief systems. As long as God is perceived only from the perspective of belief systems, humanity will never build a world of coexistence and peace. Most importantly, the truth of God will always remain a mystery. If there is a God, that God must be rationally explained to the masses. If there is a God, that God must be accessible to all humans. There is an urgent need to humanize and rationalize God. There is an urgent need to bring God down to earth. Only a rational God can bring sanity to religion and thereby to humanity. Only a rational God can elevate humanity to a higher plane of evolution beyond its animal instinct.
