"This book about the evolutionary drivers of religiosity would have delighted [Darwin].... One by one the components of religion receive the Thomson treatment. Every point he makes has the ring of truth, abetted by a crisp style and vivid imagery. Andy Thomson is an outstandingly persuasive lecturer, and it shines through his writing. This short, punchy book will be swiftly read—and long remembered."
—Richard Dawkins, author of The God Delusion, from the foreword of Why We Believe in God(s)
"Andy Thomson, with Clare Aukofer, has written a wonderfully concise introduction to our growing scientific understanding of religion. If you would like to learn, in the span of an hour, why we have every reason to believe that God is man-made—this is the book to read."
—Sam Harris, author of the New York Times best sellers The Moral Landscape, Letter to a Christian Nation, and The End of Faith

If I wanted to debate anyone about religion, this would be the book to bring up - once you can show that god is in the mind, there's no argument to refute it.
For some infuriating reasnon, Amazon.ca files this book under NINE different ASINS not counting hardcover and kinde variants.

Great quick read and matches exactly the mentality of the people I know who are blindly devoted religious types. It's a real issue.Published 19 months ago by Robert Thomson
