A Search For Truth
The story began in the 1950s when the author was rejected from a loving courtship because he did not believe in the existence of God. To quell the pain, and to understand what had happened to him, he researched the evidence as to why people believe that God exists. The result was this book, a predominance of evidence in favor of atheism.
Further, the author found that truth should always be held provisionally, not permanently, pending discovery of new evidence and insights. For example, the author’s atheism is provisional.
His search also brought a tough new world. If God doesn’t exist, we need new concepts for the meaning of life, the basis of morality, and our unalienable Rights to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. This book offers his solutions to those problems.
And one more thing: The author’s recommendation in his final chapter for a new way to search for religious truth forms the most exciting part of this book, and possibly the most prophetic.
Now, in 2016, 50 years after it had been offered to the world, and rejected by the publishers as a threat to their own interests, our society has come of age. And this book, with its eye-opening freshness still intact, is finally yours to learn from and to enjoy.
