A book that has challenged my thinking on issues such as environmentalism, secularism, Darwinism, religion, science, modernity and the Middle East conflict. Very well researched and written, the author argues Western thinking rooted in rationality, separation of church and state, individualism, equal rights, tolerance, freedom of thought and action is being eroded by a loss of religious belief. Reason and truth are being replaced by irrationality, ideology and prejudices. It may take another reading to fully grasp the extent of her position, but I definitely feel I've gained a much better understanding of historical and current world conflicts.
