The Leap Of Faith: A Leap Too Far
This book takes a look at mankind's religious needs by exploring the origins of religious beliefs, the evolution of religion, the spread of religious beliefs around the world, and some of the questions of ethics, morality and logic that religion does not, and indeed cannot answer. Mr. Shaw maintains that is not necessary to believe in a Creator in order to derive meaning out of life. Good and bad events will happen whether or not we believe in a God, and the fight against evil can be won without religious beliefs. The author concludes that mankind's religious beliefs have become entirely inappropriate, and that humans have outgrown their need for the supernatural. The survival of the human species depends upon mankind's own inner strengths and resources, and not upon any gods or spirits.
