40 I Do Believe In Miracles famous quotes: John Perry Barlow: I dont know that I believe in the supernatural, but I do believe. Dear Deb "I used to believe there were big miracles and little miracles. But, I'm not so sure God measures miracles. Dear Deb "I was raised to believe forgiveness was a gift I was supposed to give the person who hurt me, but that felt like giving a bully an ice cream cone after he pushed me down on the playground. Dear Deb "Miracles are one of God's ways of getting our attention. I believe that there is an explanation for everything, so, yes, I believe in miracles.

Robert J. from the publisher: This new book looks at how we created our gods, and the rituals that surround them. Many of society's current religious beliefs are the same as those held by ancient civilizations and even by savage tribes.

Many of society's current religious beliefs are the same as those held by ancient civilizations and even by savage tribes. All About Adam and Eve, a fascinating and revealing look at religious history, explains, in a clear and accessible way, the origin of gods from many cultures, tracing their evolution from primitive to sophisticated societies.While publishing the first opinion survey of 20th-century America's anthropologists and theologians on specific religious beliefs, Robert J. Gillooly sheds light on what science and religion have to say about some longstanding beliefs: that humans can talk with gods; that living gods such as the Dalai Llama, Buddha, and Christ exist; that evil spirits exist; that miracles are possible; that performing certain rites will serve one's god; and many more. The reasons for such beliefs are detailed in light of the various cultural settings and the available historical information.Some of the compelling ideas presented in the book include: how the Christian god originated as the volcano god of an ancient tribe; man-gods who were worshiped before Jesus; how Hebrew prophets originated as traveling fortune tellers; factual problems with the Bible, and the "magic" embedded in Christian belief.

I have read the Gnostic Gospels, How Jesus Became Christian, The Origin of Satan, and others; too many to count, really. I continue to exam religion. I have been reading about religion since my junior high school days, long ago. I studied religion in college, and it still mystifies me. This is an excellent book and I value all those who undertake writing about the complexity of religious beliefs. I would recommend this book. Very interesting.

This book is a one stop shop if you want to obtain a deeper and historically correct understanding of how humans came to their belief systems throughout time....

Gillooly sets himself a big task: explaining where our beliefs about gods and other supernatural beings come from. It would be great to have a book that does this competently for the layman, using up-to-date scholarship. Unfortunately, Gillooly's scholarship on this subject seems limited to what a high school student could acquire in a few afternoons at a (small) public library from (old) encyclopedias and magazines. Gillooly seems to think Freud is the last word in scholarship in this area, apparently blissfully unaware of the beating Freud has taken in all areas in the last decade. It's sad to see Ashley Montagu endorsing this embarrassment of a book. I can only conclude he did not read it, or if he did, his normally keen critical faculties have failed him. We have a right to expect better from Prometheus; instead, this book will add fuel to those anxious to point out that critics of religion are often just as narrow and uninformed as the believers they criticize.

Gillooly succinctly puts all the sources of derivation of Bible stories under one roof. Isn't it interesting that the ritual of Attis involved bread and wine used in a way similar to the Last Supper? that eqyptian, babylonian, and zoroastrians shared so many symbols with Christianity and Judaism?
Any of us who have looked in to the culture at the time of the Bible stories vaguely know some of these stories and their connections to the Bible. Here Gillooly keeps them tightly packed with their Jewish and Christian counter-parts.
This book will be offensive to those who are afraid to look at the facts of Bible authorship square in the face. But for those of you who are intrigued by the derivation of Bible stories and rituals, this is a gripping read.
Particularly fascinating are Gillooly's more medieval investigations involving demons, magic, and how these are intertwined with a Biblical sense of what illness is. How the Christian Church has evolved in its relationship to these doctrines in the light of science is one of the most telling aspects of what the church does.
The style and organization of the book make it difficult to put down. Gillooly finds the humor, but is likewise fair in his assessment of the meaning of the findings of archeology, and the study of ancient texts.

This book is full of facts to allow you to make your own decisions. Although some of the facts are harsh, it's an honest analysis of religion. He doesnt just cover christianity either, hinduism, buddism, etc are in there as well. He covers the bible, religious leaders, rituals. It's well written covering a good amount of topics. I learned a lot and enjoyed the book a lot.
