Some Mistakes of Moses, by Robert Ingersoll


Some Mistakes of Moses, by Robert Ingersoll

Pointedly illustrates how many religious beliefs are completely outdated, based on logical reasoning and moral values.

Product Description

Many religions have no logic in them and Ingersoll was a master at exposing the outright cruelty, stupidity and foolishness that religions, through their dogmatic and outdated precepts, force us to embrace. This book covers the Old Testament, worshipped and revered by Jews and Christians alike, which supports things like slavery, warfare, polygamy and the idea that women should be treated as property. He asks many pointed questions. For example: If you find slavery upheld in a book said to have been written by God, what would you expect to find in a book inspired by the devil? Also, why would God tell me how to raise my children when he had to drown his own in the flood? This book is meant to demonstrate how religion can control and affect our lives in ways that are contrary to our own moral fiber, modern logical reasoning, and ethical conscience.
