  1.  A good read about how religion undermines sanity 11 May, 2013 On Junglee.com
    The books is wrongly titled; the book is only about how religion poisons everything and has very little reference to god per say.
    However the book has some amazing facts and does not rely merely on words and phrases when he says religion poisons .
    Also the book primarily deals with Christianity as a religion with few words of Islam here and there. The research reflected in this is very detailed and the counter logic given very apt.
