About the Book

   We all view the world from the individual stance we assume as a result of our social status, education, and culture. None of us can see the whole picture at any one time, for our minds are not constructed for that purpose. Each time we look at a particular facet of any problem, we do so from the position dictated by the ever changing requirements of our lives.

   This book begins at the time when the first gene packages that were destined to become humankind developed awareness, and thereafter traces the origins of faith and religion as it evolved through abuse and abusiveness into the monolithic confidence trick it presents to humankind today.

About the Author

   I began my research into Religion as Myth some 27 years ago, and it has coloured my life since that beginning dramatically. The result of that research, this book, demonstrates my concern for humanity and its future.

   The fact that it has taken me so long to reach this stage is because of my other interests: Golf, Science fiction, detective stories, and Short story writing embodying all three genre.

   I am a long standing member of a Cornish Writer's Group, and have self-published two books of short stories.
