The Omega Point (The God Series) - Mike HockneyWhat is history's biggest lie? It's that there's one "God", that he Created the universe out of nothing and made Adam from the dirt of the Garden of Eden, with Eve then being generated from one of Adam's ribs! Nothing has done more damage to the human psyche than monotheism - the doctrine of an all-powerful "Spy God" who watches what everyone does (the divine peeping Tom) and sentences to perpetual pain in his cosmic torture chamber of hell anyone who doesn't slavishly worship and obey him .
