Synopsis

Every statement that a person makes is either true or false?that is, a lie. In his comprehensive study, Lies Have Ruined the World, author Dennis Proux seeks to expose the dishonesty, myths, and fabrications provided by powerful influences in the most important areas of our lives, including religious institutions, government, and our legal system.

Proux feels that all humans yearn to be free to discover their own worlds and realize their full potential. While relying on the wisdom and insight from such authors as Charles Darwin, Thomas Paine, Carl Sagan, and countless others, Proux offers a compelling glimpse into the lies surrounding western monotheistic religions, Wall Street, and our nation?s government and justice system. As he examines biblical tales, reveals corruption within our society, and dissects many painful realities, Proux offers insight and potential solutions that will ultimately inspire a life based on fact and honesty, rather than on fiction and lies.

Lies Have Ruined the World encourages seekers of the truth to explore their own perceptions of the failure of western institutions to garner and hold trust.

Proux admits in his introduction that he is not a writer. He is not setting out an academic defence of his worldview. But he has read a lot of free-thinking literature, and encountered many deceitful people, and he's as mad as hell about - well, just about everybody, but especially theists. I think it was worth reading this book, firstly for some amusing personal anecdotes, and secondly to be reminded what I would sound like if I abandoned norms of politeness, respect and restraint to let all those people who disagree with me know just what I think of them and their stupid beliefs.

Overall it's a very insightful book. Can't say it's very well written, but it doesn't have to be. The book is trying to make a very clear point, which is, do not trust people or institutions.
