Price: $8.99 USD. Words: 36,940. Language: English. Published: March 9, 2019. Categories: Nonfiction » Inspiration » Personal inspiration, Nonfiction » Philosophy » Contemporary philosophy

Being deliberately forced fed with historical and theological lies not by accident. The only logical reason for control is to fabricate a compelling story book called the KJV bible, filled with unrealistic ethics. It’s only fair, we get off the wagon of stupidity.
