About the author:
Andrew Clifford has spent 30 years in the IT industry designing and writing financial systems. For over a decade he was the technical manager for computer systems processing and settling transactions worth $10,000 million - each day.
That was the past.
The present finds him embarked on a new direction. The Geologic Model of Religion is his first book devoted to exploring the great vine of religion entwined through all of human history, and presenting his findings in a surprising new way.
The Geologic Model of Religion
Perhaps there are already 100,000 books written about religion, and you only want to read one to be fully informed. If so, then you have paused at the right place!
The history of humanity is a vast woven tapestry trailing through time, patterned with all the hopes and dreams, lives and loves of millions who have gone before. It is vibrant with the colors of the world, proud accomplishments, the memories of noisy existences.
Look closer, between the threads, it is different. There is blackness, an unbroken expanse of oblivion. Since the prehistoric dawn of humanity, while death has haunted everyone's footsteps, religion has stood firm in defence.
The Geologic Model of Religion is a sympathetic study of this defence from the beginning until the projected end. It draws upon archaeology, anthropology and comparative religion to clearly explain one of the most complex subjects known, and:
* Decomposes religion into its distinct Worldview and Afterlife paradigms...
* Identifies six long lost Prehistoric Religions, culminating in the ancient Temples of Rebirth...
* How Spirituality began with the Neolithic revolution and they spread together...
* Why Judgment in Afterlife was the keystone in the emerging edifice of civilization...
* How the interaction between Science and Religion is actually unfolding...
Read this volume and then consider "Could 100,000 books be wide of the mark?"
