5.0 out of 5 stars The true history of religion, 31 Dec. 2006
Onfray shows through historical and philosophical examples how the myths of monotheism and later Christianity were created and how the whole story was trimmed to suit the people in power.

Constantine was the first roman emperor who converted to Christianity. He saw clearly how this new religion would help him to establish a totalitarian regime. For nearly two millennia others would follow and use a fairytale to gain power over large parts of the world and brutalize everyone who wouldn't comply.

The book puts into easy readable words what I thought for myself since I started to think at around 12 years of age. But I could never really articulate my thought about the subject very well. Onfray does this brilliantly.

Must read for everyone! This way of thinking should be taught in schools.
