MECHANICSBURG, Pa. -- Sunbury Press has released author A. Gimbernat's latest book "The Lust for Reverence - Undressing the Human Being to Reveal How Heroes and Gods Are Made and Demolished." About the Book: Author A. Gimbernat reviews our distant past for the answer to the ultimate question of human existence: Who created God? Gimbernat builds a record of deification from ancient rulers and gods to contemporary fascist dictators. He seeks a root cause to the need for such constructs in the natural world, and ultimately in genetics. Fans of Richard Dawkins' "The God Delusion" will find this a nice extension to that work regarding the evolutionary origin of otherworldly powers. Contents: Prologue: Numina Origins Further Aspects The Call By the Approach of the Thought Experiment, together with a Reductio ad Absurdum Submission without Fear Of Heroes and Gods Emotionalists The Nature Nurture Controversy Define Your Terms Gene Power By the Approach of Psychotherapy: Offshoots of Psychoanalysis By the Approach of Empirical Science: Experimental Psychology Differences Relatives: by the Approach of Ethology and Comparative Psychology Skeletons: by the Approach of Paleoanthropology Requiem for Lost Opportunities On the Extremes to Which Worship Can Lead What to Do with the Comforting Wall?
