Description : This book takes you along on a journey to make some sense out of man's history from the biblical days of Adam to present times. Specifically, it is about how the author views religion and along the way to show how religion is man-made and subject to man's whims and emotions, aspirations and vested interests, power and politics. It traces this journey from his baptism to renunciation, Sunday School to Vocation Camp, Roman Catholic to Agnostic, books to Google. It is a story that starts with a walk on the pious side, irregular excursions into the book world, romps in the wilderness, and now traversing the globe on a virtual journey in cyberspace. Like in every walk of life, there are ups and downs, heroes and villains, excitement and frustration. Most importantly, this is a personal exercise to reconstruct what he knows and brings to bear all his experiences, thoughts and beliefs in one single place as pieces of a puzzle. Uppermost is the constant search for the truth, which can often be found only in the spaces between black and white, dark and light, a claim and a lie. It is like mining for gold. As we often come to realise, truth is a funny thing. Sometimes, when we have found it, it is no more alluring. For many others, they cannot handle the stark realisation of their long-cherished but broken faith in what eventually turns out to be a falsity after all. The reader is urged to keep an open mind as a lot in this book may run counter to popular beliefs and widely-held "truths".
