This book shows how close the world came to nuclear catastrophe under President Reagan and how this was prompted by what the author calls 'biblical BS'. The book begins with a brief survey for the purpose of clarifying to the reader the nature of their own religious belief. It then continues into an explanation of the pre-historic religious impulse. After defining what is meant by 'biblical BS' in chapter 3, the author looks at the topics of 'objectivity', 'biblical criticism', and the social effects of 'biblical BS' in chapters 4, 5 and 6 respectively. Chapter 7 is a kind of pivot point in the book and the longest chapter on how Christian fundamentalism nearly brought the world to the brink of disaster and what the effects of such a disaster would be on our planet. Chapter 8 discusses who bears the burden of proof in a religious argument. Chapters 9 and 10 tie all the loose ends together with perhaps a surprise ending.
