Publisher's Summary

This book is not just for atheists, but for antitheists - for people who celebrated the writing of Christopher Hitchens and miss his voice.
Making the provocative assertion that the entire enterprise of organized religion is a thing for which the world and our species would have been better without, Oh, Your God! follows in the footsteps of the material observations of Lucretius, Epicurus, and Democritus, and the more recent anti-theistic arguments of Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins.
Drawing from timeless philosophers, modern debates, historical events, and current social climes, Joshua Kelly illustrates the shameful and debilitating damage religion has caused - and continues to cause - whether to our psyches, our bodies, our societies, or our world. Citing the murders of Nigeria's "witch children", the subversion of sexual emancipation, the tethers of slavery, the attacks of September 11, the pseudo morality of monotheistic mythology, the subjugation of women, and much more, he provides an abundance of damning evidence to back up his claims. Only by acknowledging and grappling with the real and potential dangers of religion, he argues, will we be able to thrive and develop as a species.
