Has anyone read God is Not One by Stephen Prothero, or read parts of it? If not, I highly recommend everyone go and buy it. It has an insightful description of each of the 8 major religions (atheism is included, although as Prothero says it is questionable whether it meets all requirements for a religion), and counters beyond doubt the silly notion that "all religions are the same".
"We are half-hearted creatures,
fooling about with drink and sex and
ambition when infinite joy is offered us,
like an ignorant child who wants to go on
making mud pies in a slum because he
cannot imagine what is meant by the offer
of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily
pleased."—C.S. Lewis, "The Weight of Glory"
