    When Dr. Samuel Johnson had completed the first real dictionary of the English language, he was visited by a delegation of respectable old ladies who wished to congratulate him for not including any indecent words. His response—which was that he was interested to see that the ladies had been looking them up—contains almost all that needs to be said on this point.

    【宗教的是與非】


    這樣的書名大概會惹惱基督徒,引來拒讀風波,
    不過我也是基督徒,卻不會為了這樣的書名大動肝火。
    閱讀本身沒有不對,再說宗教是人類創造的,但上帝本身卻是自有永有的,兩者並無衝突。
    只要是基督徒 人手一本《聖經》翻看第一章便知,起初人創造天地的來歷,並沒有說祂創造宗教;
    祂以聖經留世,不過是期待人們能更認識祂,
    了解真理並非人們口中宗教那樣呆板,看看大自然 有哪一樣受造物不是活靈活現,充滿生氣?!

    宗教本身並無法使人徹底從惡性中悔改,除非生命遭遇非常事,身心皆受極大的調整 (敗壞之先, ...(continue)


    這樣的書名大概會惹惱基督徒,引來拒讀風波,
    不過我也是基督徒,卻不會為了這樣的書名大動肝火。
    閱讀本身沒有不對,再說宗教是人類創造的,但上帝本身卻是自有永有的,兩者並無衝突。
    只要是基督徒 人手一本《聖經》翻看第一章便知,起初人創造天地的來歷,並沒有說祂創造宗教;
    祂以聖經留世,不過是期待人們能更認識祂,
    了解真理並非人們口中宗教那樣呆板,看看大自然 有哪一樣受造物不是活靈活現,充滿生氣?!

    宗教本身並無法使人徹底從惡性中悔改,除非生命遭遇非常事,身心皆受極大的調整 (敗壞之先,人心驕傲;尊榮以前,必有謙卑。)
    神就是愛。神可沒說神祂就是宗教,有些人誤以為不信上帝就下地獄,
    若真是這樣,那我們每個人應該早被打入地獄,何苦會生在世上。
    愛神是人因受神感召,
    神愛人,透過生命受建造的關,會愈來愈緊密,如同呼吸。
    人不能不呼吸,照樣神愛人的心也同樣,祂愛人便愛到底。

    世上宗教百百款,有人因宗教受害是不爭的事實,更有人以宗教斂財,更是罪無可赦。
    神可沒允許人們自作主張,以宗教之名,行惡欲之實,
    真該要被批判的是人性裡的卑劣,竟想以宗教來遮掩惡行,萬萬不該 !

    如果要探討神學,聖經是最佳的參考指南。
    而這書只是把人們利用宗教包裝神話,以謊言敗壞人心,這才是為人所詬病之所在。
    作者也有基督信仰的背景,對聖經知之甚詳,他提出的論點在我讀來頗有趣。

    Dio non è grande
    L'ego di Hitchens, in compenso, è smisurato.
    Se ce ne fosse ancora bisogno le sue argomentazioni contro metafisica e dogmi sono davvero eccellenti.

    Hitchen's 'God is not Great' is a good read and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in reading an eloquent rebuttal of religion. Hitchens sure seems to know what he is talking about.
    The last two chapters, however, are a bit clunky and hasty and it feels as if Hitchens is writing outside his area of expertise (or maybe it was the translation, since I read the Dutch version).
    But on the whole it is a good and interesting read.

    一直很想問這本書封面設計怎麼了。
    作者對於回教與天主 / 基督教的批判很棒,但對於佛教 / 印度教等東方宗教的著墨則略顯不足,導致不足以說服我這些看起來較為溫和的宗教也如同西方主流宗教那般邪惡,期望他之後能有新作剖析一下(或華文地區作者有類似作品)。
