Here's wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Thank you for all your support so far - I think / hope 2015 will be the year that we get to 100% funding and finally get the DISSENT OF MAN into your hands and onto the bookshelves.
The book draft itself is in fine shape, but needs a thorough going over in the light of recent advances in Cognitive Science, and how those developments improve our understanding of why we, as a species, have religions. Applying my nominal yardstick, the “Distance-from-Darwin”, it’s fascinating to explore the elements of our nature that have become subsumed into various belief systems, or entirely excised from them. Delving further into our past, it's increasingly possible to understand why humans even need faith, whether we individually consciously subscribe to one or not.
I can’t wait to see the DISSENT OF MAN in print, and I’m sure the wait is testing your patience too. You’ve done so much towards supporting the book already - thanks once more - still, I’m (un)bound to remind you that if anyone you know needs a last minute Christmas / New Year present, gifting them a pledge to the book, with their name in the roll call of honour, might be a nice idea,
