This material is largely retrospective, historical, scholarly—but its conclusions are non-standard:

  • 5 BENEFITS — The benefits of religion come from belief itself, not from a god.
  • 6 THEORIES — Religion is what got us out of 150,000 years in the Middle Paleolithic rut.
  • 6A SURVEY — We don’t all mean the same thing by ‘religion’.
  • 7 ANOMALIES — The Gospels, and Murphy’s Law, have similar recension histories.
  • 8 ARGUMENTS — The natural theology of the universe is hierarchical polytheism.
