Once infected, the individual [infected with a god virus] cannot detect major contradictions in his beliefs and behavior. Belief systems become self-evident to him and no amount of logical discourse will move him from his belief. If a Mormon and Catholic were to debate the merits of their respective religions, neither could see his own inconsistencies and logical fallacies, but would see the other’s quite clearly.
~ Darrel Ray
The God Virus goes beyond analogy, offering a fascinating and detailed look at the wiggling, maddening virus itself how it moves, how it survives and how and why it continues to thrive. One of the interesting discussions in the book is using the virus metaphor to explain why fundamentalists are as resistant to other religions as they are to atheism. Like a virus, a religion ruthlessly manipulates its hosts for its own ends. There is a website for the book. You can read the first two chapters online. The God Virus 20 part video : How religion infects our lives and culture. Darrel Ray holds a BA in sociology, an MA in religion and an Ed.D. in psychology. Ed.D. means Doctor of Education.
