The End of Faith: Religion, Terror & the Future of Reason

Naive, illogical and arrogant. The author's true colors and political agenda are blatantly evident readingpages 138-152. "Where ethics are concerned, intentions are everything
"(Pg. 147). If that is true, how can the author possibly justify GWB's invasion of Iraq or any of the actions enumerated on the previous page? Answer: cultural prejudice and ideological arrogance. "Without faith, most Muslim grievances against the West would be impossible even to formulate, much less avenge."(pg. 138)". Are you kidding me?? If you want a taste of cognitive dysonance, give this one a read. If you get enough of that watching the news each night, skip this book and go read a good mystery.
