This Is Adam's development of his thought experiment 'God's Debris' and well worth a read. I guess this is a thought experiment set inside a plot. I read it in three hours (as Scott Adams predicted I could) and it was worth the investment of time although it tailed off towards the end. Some of the metaphysicaldiscussion with the torturer is extremely confusing even after several rereads.
I'm now trying to think of a way to discuss the ending without giving it away...
While I agree with the base sentiment don't see that the final revelation which is what the old man has been working towards is enough of a revelation to end a war of extermination. There have been many wars of extermination in the past and I'm sure there are covert wars of extermination going on at the moment and the emotions involved, fighting for survival of everyone you knowand love would seem to go beyond the rational enlightenment that the old man offers... even though his thoughts and ideas seem to affect everyone at an emotional level too. It would be interesting to read a review or hear the opinion of someone who has been on the receiving end rather than most on Amazon who are cossetted and removed from real danger - myself, and I suspect the author, included.

as it has some interesting ideas and will not take a long time. Does the author really hold the key to world peace? If only that were true. I think there's a lot more involved in human nature and the societies we form, and I doubt if world religions are going to be downgraded just because people fart (you'll have to read the book to make sense of that). I also doubt that world peace will be achieved by a totally free communications system. Still, it does give you something to think about.

I couldnt put this down. Then I knew it was going to be special having read "Gods Debris" which although had the same character was a completely different type of book. Whereas Gods Debris is an engaging philosophical debate between two people, in The Religion War Adams skillfully moulds it into a novel which is out there on its own in that it takes you beyond the boundaries of your own thinking. It would make a great movie!! If your mind isnt open, it will be...More of the same please Mr Adams :-)
