Have you ever wondered if there is a god? Then this book is for you.When people talk about “Christian children”, “Muslim children”, or “Hindu children”, they usually mean children of Christian, Muslim or Hindu parents.But all people are born with a brain of their own. Don’t you want to decide for yourself what to believe?There are many books about all kinds of religions. They contain stories and tales, sometimes beautiful, sometimes frightening, sometimes inspiring, sometimes depressing.This book contains no such tales. Instead, it explains why many believe that gods don’t exist. Read and think. You are the only person who can decide if you believe.
