This short book, only 8,000 finely crafted words, focuses squarely on the inherent irrationality of religion, and reveals its utter irreconcilability with science. Presenting secular humanism as an alternative worldview to religious supernaturalism, it offers several "reconciliation theories" to people of faith, forcing every reader to make a choice.
