"MORE WONDERS OF THE INVISIBLE WORLD: OR THE WONDERS OF THE INVISIBLE WORLD DISPLAYED IN FIVE PARTS." Originally published in 1700 and rarely found in print, Robert Calef's "More... More > Wonders of the Invisible World" provides a more readable and empathetic view of the events of 1692 Salem than the better-known Increase & Cotton Mather book from which its title is adapted.

Text based primarily on the Salem 1823 edition. Includes footnotes by editor S.P. Fowler and header illustrations from the Salem 1860 edition.

Thoughts on Religion By Kevin A. Fox
Hardcover: $34.50
Prints in 3-5 business days
Using light humor and sarcasm to make the case for a naturalistic worldview, this little book examines contemporary issues regarding religion. Dr. Fox’s training as a natural scientist and... More > interest in religion have predisposed him to examine the evolutionary, cultural and psychological roots of religious belief and human morality. Contemporary claims that religious persons are happier, healthier, and more honest and charitable than nonbelievers are debunked. Emphasis is on Western (Abrahamic) faiths, but some Eastern and minor religions and cults are also considered. Many prosocial behaviors traditionally attributed to religious instruction are more the result of evolution than religion. Supernatural belief systems tend to inhibit scientific, social and moral progress; promote and perpetuate numerous cruel and anachronistic practices; and waste enormous global assets in their maintenance. This book examines the many disadvantages and dubious advantages of most religious belief.< Less

“... a moment might bring about the revelation of a monstrous horror—a ghastly, deadly danger, set loose and at bay, in a circle of girls and women and careless defenseless men: so...
