  • Description

    Is there really a God out there, or is it something that human created so we could have something or someone to fear in cases where we go wrong? This book asserts the it is the highly imaginative human mind that invented God using scientific research.

    Summary of the Book

    For most people it is blind faith in a God that they believe existed, and for some there is doubt as to how this whole concept came about. This book takes you back to the era that was about 400,000 to 200,000 years ago when man and woman just came to existence. About 100,000 years ago, humans discovered language as a form of communication. This helped them analyse and think about the world around them. It makes sense that the things that they feared the most were what they would eventually worship. For example: they feared the cold, so they turned to the sun for help and in turn started to worship it. They felt threatened by thunder and lightening, so they worship the sky. Several years ago diseases came into being which brought about another God that served that purpose.
    This book sets apart religion and science. It tells us that there is a scientific reason for the creation of every God that is worshipped, and that it is the work of the humans themselves.

    The knowledge that changed my convictions.

    I rarely write a review, even then I am writing, since I absolutely loved this book. I am surprised to read the contents, which are altogether new. This book has compiled several religious practices prevalent during the prehistoric and historic time. After reading those, a clear cut picture appears how and why humans would have created or imagined their gods. Humans imagined and worshipped the divine powers or gods in order to explain their mysteries and miseries. The author has established ...

    Pure Facts? I doubt it.

    First of all it's an okay book. Now I am no religious type at all, but as a keen seeker of knowledge from both side, I constantly read the books of both side. Now, here author AJAY KANSAL tried to prove that "God doesn't exists."

    First of all what he did is asked a simple question, "Have you ever wondered why there is so many religion, but only one Science?". This very question is worth making you ask, "Seriously why?" After that he dwells into the history of human civilization showing how ...

    A Great Eye-opener Book: Every Young Must Read it.

    I liked this book very much. Since my childhood, I was much skeptical and confused about gods and their roles in our life. Whether some divine power created and nourished humans or this dogma was a human projection. I always asked if one God made us then why He created poor & rich, beautiful & ugly and so on. This book taught me that all gods are imaginary and made by us for our convenience.
    The author has provided several interesting evidence to support his main argument that humans created...

    A perspective changing, splendidly written book that answers questions on the existence of God...

    A beautiful and a sincere effort to utilize Science to explain the why, how and when of the evolution of life and the subsequent evolution of the God phenomenon. A fascinating read from a very promising author. Its written to the point and greatly adds to our understanding and knowledge of the origin of life, religion and evolution of Gods. I have always believed that there is a God and that everything that happens is part of a bigger plan known and devised by him. But The Evolution of Gods,w...

    A disappointing Hypothesis of the pathology of time and belief

    When I got this book i was so underwhelmed it took me a weak week to read the whole thing and felt that its some creative writing that seems to reek of disappointment. Too much importance has been piled on about how illiterate our ancestors were with their superstitions, Vishnu and Shiva have been sidelined for Indra. The stories of the Vedas and Upanishads which contain a hidden knowledge meant for those whose eyes have been opened by a master has been dispatched to the realm of bedtime tale...

    Just Amazing

    The Title says it all. We heard about evolution of organisms and mankind before but this time Gods have been proved to be evolved. Such kind of books should be included in school text-books so that the young minds can set themselves free.

    The author never becomes judgmental at any point. He just provide details with solid & concrete evidences.

    And yes.. Very Lucid English so that you dont have to consult dictionaries too often. A pleasurable and well,... "Divine" Reading.

    The best thing about this book is its simplicity. It provides the most important of the fact in such a simple language to understand and after reading the book you find a huge shift in your thinking on the concept of God. I sincerely feel that this book should be included in the curriculum of our education in schools. I strongly recommend this book for everyone.

    good book, but not great in answering the quest of god.

    This book is definitely not philosophical as it was categorized. But indeed a good book to read.
    ........
    This book relies too much logic and give wonderful explanation that our simple mind could take. But never answers the man greatest mystery source of life end of life. Initial chapters assumes every nomadic culture would have behaved in similar way. and every nomadic would have evolved at the same time.
    ........
    As a famous saying " Logic is a prostitute, It goes with any one who pays fo...

    rubbish and delusional

    this book is rubbish and nonsense.Does this man know what he's talking about.He has reduced the GITA,the vedas,and the entire concept to nothing.it is sad that a man of medical science is talking such crap.The GITA is PROFOUND WISDOM about all that is and beyond and not about god in itself .Scriptures such as the mahabharata,ramayana,the puranas,propagate this SAME wisdom in their own unique ways.YOGA,MEDITATION.AYURVEDA etc are all higher forms of science which the world is understanding no...
