Some Mistakes of Moses

Ingersoll was widely known as the greatest orator of his time and could soundly thrash any challenger in a debate-especially in a debate on religion. His logic was impeccable and his mind was as sharp as a whip. Many religious beliefs have no logic in them at all and Ingersoll was a master at exposing the outright cruelty, stupidity and foolishness that religions, through their dogmatic and outdated precepts, force us to embrace. This book covers the Old Testament, worshipped and revered by Jews and Christians alike, which supports things like slavery, warfare, polygamy and the idea that women should be treated as property. He asks many pointed questions. For example: If you find slavery upheld in a book said to have been written by God, what would you expect to find in a book inspired by the devil? Also, why would God tell me how to raise my children when he had to drown his own in the flood? He also presents an interview of two men at the gates of heaven-one an honest and loving family man, the other a despicable thieving businessman. Based on their beliefs, guess who gets into heaven and who goes to hell. This book will truly make you think. It is meant to demonstrate how religion can control and affect our lives in ways that are quite contrary to our own moral fiber, modern logical reasoning and ethical conscience.
