Religion Must Die, says believer
We have a new book in our shop called Religion Must Die and it is written by a man who purports to believe in God. Rich Sanit describes himself as
a deist who thinks "there may well be a God…who created the universe, but has since left his creation to just get on with it, and has had no further input since".
He asserts that deism is not a religion in itself, rather a way of "freeing one's mind from the limits of superstition." He says "religion must die so that God may live."

By using the texts, scriptures and teachings of most global religions, the author provides ample evidence as to why religion must die. Most religions provide all the ammunition needed to use against them, while other belief systems are criticised by the author through reasoned argument and common sense thinking.
This book offers the reader a choice: abandon religion and walk forward into the light of rational thinking, or nurture religion and take a leap back into the darkness of ignorance, blind faith and superstition.
It's an interesting book that doesn't mince words – it is far more scathing and unyielding in its attack on religion than other recent books – and is worth the price if only for the witheringly honest summaries of the beliefs and practices of all the well-known religions that man has inflicted on himself, from Christianity to Scientology.
The book is available from our on-line shop or by post for £10.99 plus £1.50 p&p from NSS Books, 25 Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4RL.
