How and Why People Reject Religion
A thorough summing up of how and why people reject religion. The key reasons are presented and discussed. They include education; misfortune; other cultures or religions; friends, colleagues, and lovers; politics; sex and sexuality; Satan and hell; the malfeasance of religious associates, and others. A theoretical discussion follows, considering the ways in which reasons may not be objective causes, what a sociological theory of apostasy entails, and discussion of the possibility that secularity may have an innate or natural component.
