We don't need outdated religious dogma to guide our lives. We know enough about nature and our own history that we can put aside our superstitions about an all powerful supernatural being that holds sway over our existence. Humanity faces a series of very serious challenges including climate change, overpopulation, disease, mass extinctions of plants and animals and a potentially catastrophic astronomical event. There is no supernatural force that will intercede and rescue us from the consequences of our actions or inaction. Religion is the source of much of the strife that exists among people and cultures across our planet. So what we need is not religion and the accompanying dogma but a set of practical guidelines that we can all agree to for charting a proper course forward for living in harmony among ourselves and with nature and to assure our future survival. This book offers such a set of guidelines, tells the real story of creation and provides a detailed summary of our history to date. It also offers some of the great wisdom, in the form of quotations, from men and women across history, as evidence that we don't need the specter of a supernatural being or outdated religious dogma to guide how we live. Finally, the book includes a sampling of the poetry and prose that represents the power and beauty humans have created through our words that help inspire all of us to greater life experiences.
