Description - The Dog Allusion by Martin Rowson
As with dogs, so with gods by and large, you should blame the owners. particular trait, common to all human civilisations, is the worship of non-human entities with followings of devotees who claim that their reverence can transport them to transcendental heights of complete and unfettered love. o I mean God?No I mean Dog. Dogs and other pets we ve been keeping and loving since we began walking on two feet. But why do we love God and pets so much when their capriciousness sometimes suggests that they don t love us back? n this wise, witty and highly topical book, celebrated cartoonist and novelist Martin Rowson argues that rationally, the whole enterprise of religion is a monumental and faintly ridiculous waste of time and money.But then again, so is pet-keeping.What both do, however, is tell us a lot about who we are, which is perhaps a more important question than whether God exists and if so, if he is indeed great.
