    I'm not Anti-Religion. I'm just not Pro-Ignorance. All religions are beneficial in one way or another. The objective is to find how they are all the same and how they are all different and to come to a common ground.

    We have Taoism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
    We also have Physics, Chemistry, Botony, Biology, and Mathematics.
    For the first time in history we all have INSTANT access to people on the other side of the planet. Everything we write can be very quickly translated and barriers can be torn down.

    This is the first step towards tearing that wall down.
    Nothing more, nothing less. Gotta start somewhere.

    Walter - I don't think anybody actually wants to read that.

    Brahman - Sometimes I don't know whether I should take you seriously or read your words as satire. [funny] @ "Reading Eyes" as a book

    I'm in the wrong profession.

    when it comes to you, my words are all seriousness

    even though i disagree with you about half of the time, i have found a lot of what you've said inspiring, thought-provoking, and eye-opening

    it still looks so cheaply done... the image looks like its from a 1980 something postcard and the text doesn't help much.

    i don't know.... just looks far from professional.

    neither cover raises an eyebrow....and if by some miracle the title were to catch my attention, it would only be brief as i keep walking down the aisle shuddering at the thought of anyone actually paying for a copy.

    bullshit aside, if i were to see that book on the shelves....i would glance at it and be jealous as the fuck.

    books aren't hard to release. A lot of my friends have books out (although, a lot of my friends actually went to school).

    hazard a try in the graphics job forum. See what they can do for a fifty. That cover looks like a copy of Little House on the Prarie. Decent, but not geared toward your market.

    Azue, You can never fool anyone. Not only is that cover photoshoped badly and corny. But It will also never see a bookshelf because there is no book. And Yes, if you had a book on christianity would have to label it fictional (unless it's about Christian history).Otherwise, If any scholar really cared to, They would simplely rip everything you say in the book apart. Then that would expose you for the fake you are. Infact, Just label it REX OPINION for the christian mind. LOL!


    Now that I think about it. You should actually go with that picture soultan provided as your book cover.

    The press release is December 16th and the book will be available December 18th through Barnes & Noble as well as Amazon on line and numerous other book stores around the country from Christian stores to Hastings, Books-A-Million, Borders, Etc. If by some chance it is not on the shelf all you have to do is go up to the counter after December 18th and order it through them.

    The price of the book will be $13.95


    Thus this cover:
