Book Review: The World’s Biggest Lie AAI Blog Atheist Alliance International

Read More Atheist Alliance International Recently an AAI follower, Andrew McQuinn, contacted the blog to ask if AAI would review his new book The World’s Biggest Lie: A Trial for Truth. While McQuinn is not a historian or religious scholar—this is not that unusual as neither Hitchens nor Schweitzer were—he does a good job of summarizing the origins of many of the major faiths in the world. While there were some points I would disagree with, such as the dating of the Gospels, that mainly comes down to a matter of which scholar one cites, and they don’t agree anyway so this is to be expected. Overall, McQuinn focuses on the interesting historical aspects of religions and provides a scathing indictment of their track record, particularly conflicts with modern science such as evolutionary biology, and concludes with the latest research into the neuroscience of belief.
