Beliefs are not shown to be true just because people find them comforting or inspiring. Such is the wisdom to be found in Abandon the Cave: Faith’s Seductive Virtual Reality. The fool hath said in his heart, "There is no God" (Psalm 14:1). This book is a heartfelt reply from the fool! The author, once a devout Christian and now atheist, challenges claims made by religion of any kind. Religions place significance on a unique narrative, featuring accounts of fantastic deeds or words attributed to a mystic or sage. Underlying these narratives are two core mythologies often shared by different faiths. The first is a belief that the real world is immaterial, is populated by a deity or deities, hosts of acolytes or demons, and that this world of ours is a mere shadow. The second of these myths reveals itself in magical thinking, miracles and divine activities free from physical causation. This exposes a desire to transcend physical and material limitations to find fulfilment of wishes and desires, as well as to escape from fears of failure or death. Isn’t it time to learn the truth and Abandon the Cave?
