I could see her point; but in my case, on the rare occasions I’ve done it, it’s been with nonfiction books read yhe the past that I didn’t have leisure to review, but didn’t want people who might browse my shelves to think I agreed with or endorsed, just because I’d read them.

Which is part of the reason I know look at my once favorite fi Let me start of by saying that I do not accept this as the truth, however the some of ideas are not as far-fetched as erihc might seem at first.

Now for my review. View all 5 comments. The book goes on to suggest that the origins of religions, including interpretations of the Old Testament of the Bibleare reactions to contact with an alien race.
