Mistakes of Moses

Gelesen von Margaret Espaillat

(4,264 Sterne; 55 Bewertungen)

Robert G. Ingersoll was an extremely popular humanist orator in the late nineteenth century, and he wrote Mistakes of Moses after many bootlegged versions of his speeches had been published and circulated. In Mistakes of Moses, through a close, literal reading of the Pentateuch, he challenges biblical stories using science, logic and morality. (Summary by Margaret) (5 hr 58 min)

Excellent From Stem To Stern!

(5 Sterne)

Beautifully read and brilliantly written! Freedom of religion (or no religion) and freedom of speech enable the freedom of thought and action-thereby enriching our lives! What a brilliant tool. Tell the people they are born into a separation from their maker due to their evil nature. Tell them they are bound for eternal punishment and their only salvation is attending their church, censuring their own thoughts and behaviour according to a kooky bronze age morality, and giving them 10% of your pre-tax income?!?! WHAT A RACKET!!! It's almost like telling everyone there's a deadly virus running rampant and their only cure is your patented snake oil! Problem-Reaction-Solution! It works every time!
