I've written a great many articles on philosophy and religion since I started my blog in 2011 (see the first link below). They all hang together and while some are more central than others, none suffices to say everything I want to say on the subject. It's an evolving, sprawling thing, creating a worldview that tackles the ultimate questions.

But if you're looking for a critical article on the world's religions that doesn't paint with a broad brush, try the second link.

As for this article, "The Manmade Gods of Monotheism," it's actually a rewrite and a simplification of an earlier version I wrote in 2014 (third link).

Knowledge condemns. Art redeems. I learned that as an artistic writer who did a doctorate in philosophy. We should try to see the dark comedy in all things.
