Description of this Book

Muslim extremists commandeer 'roplanes and fly them into the World Trade Center Towers, killing themselves, all the occupants of the planes, and thousands of the occupants of the towers. These Muslims firmly believe that this is the most righteous act they can commit in support of their religion. In response, an American Christian president, following the guidelines of his religion, accuses other nations of being totally evil, and primarily on that basis, believes it is his moral obligation to declare war on those nations. Judging from these actions alone, it seems clear that both moral systems, and religious reasoning, are deeply flawed. In this book, Carl Schowengerdt analyses the evolution of human morals since early biblical times. He provides clearer definitions of what we should mean by our terms of right, wrong, good, evil, fairness, justice, morals, and ethics. He discusses particular misconceptions, and how they have led us to self-destructive behaviour in our societies, using our religion as an excuse.
