“There are over two billion people in the world who self-identify as Christians, but almost all of them know next to nothing about how their faith began. The most amazing thing they don’t know is that Jesus was a fictional character created by the author of the Gospel According to Mark. Peter and Paul, too, are unlikely to have lived. Peter was created as a literary foil for the character of Jesus, and Paul’s epistles may have been forged during the early second-century.
I offer two major arguments: first, that there is no evidence for Jesus (or any of the other gospel Christians) outside of the New Testament, and, second, that the diversity and confusion of the first five centuries of Christianity (the multiplicity of Christianities) was possible only because there was no human and historical Jesus to serve as an anchor for the faith”.
“Great Without Religion was written to be the first book which parents can read to their children to help them understand that there are many religions and many gods and in-fact none of them are real. This book helps parents start the conversation and answer questions which small children have about gods and does so on an intellectual level. It helps children understand that facts, evidence, and proof are the most natural ways to understanding what is happening around them and there is no need for a god or gods”.
