Myths of the Tribe: When Religion and Ethics Diverge


KELLY D. Good Food For Thought February 23, 2020

Format : Paperback A very interesting treatise on how ethics & religion are often separated. A fascinating analysis of the history and current application of the major world religions to the ethical problems of today. Reinforced my belief that most organized religions are at the root of the worlds problems regarding military conflicts, terrorism, most types of extremism, and a general disbelief in scientific facts. Well worth the read!

The author must have taken years to research and write this book. This is the kind of stuff you really don't learn in school. Tells about the origins of the world's major religions and how they correspond to the problems we face today, from illegal drugs to abortion and ethics in general. Absolutely fascinating reading.
