The age-old battle among faith and technology has taken a brand new twist. as soon as the committed scientist-martyr fought heroically opposed to inflexible religionists. yet now the tables have became, and it's confirmed technological know-how crusading opposed to faith, pushing atheistic agendas within the lecture room, in textbooks, and within the media. This publication exhibits how technological know-how has now develop into a faith of its own-an usually fanatical one at that-furiously preaching atheism, punishing dissenters, dictating how and what we must always imagine, and subtly placing its worldviews in every little thing from schooling to leisure. And, with attractive readability, it proves that, with billions of bucks up for grabs within the race for stem mobilephone study, highbrow integrity has been changed with stable outdated greed. With sharp perception and fully unique reporting, this e-book defiantly exhibits the level to which technological know-how is thrashing down faith and the way this systematic tyranny is unmistakably weakening tradition and society.
