"ALPHA, OMEGA" - New Novel Exposes Religion as Addiction

SEATTLE, Washington—Fresh from the keyboard of science-thriller writer Lori Stephens, Alpha, Omega is—like Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code—fiction with a forceful message. The story starts with a corpse. A defector from a cult called Omega has bled to death, and the only clue is the book he’s clutching: the Librah Vae-ta, the holy scripture that the Omega founders engineered over a century ago. Dr. Gatsby Donovan resolves to help solve the bizarre murder. As she spirals deeper into the danger zone of spies and assassins, she discovers that the Omega script is based on the ancient languages of the Bible, Torah, and Koran.

Alpha, Omega’s back cover cautions, “WARNING! Read at your own risk!” Could the mere act of reading this novel be dangerous? Readers may wonder if the holy book in their own home libraries contains much more than maxims for living.

Alpha, Omega is an intelligent (and wild) ride through cults, religious scriptures, ancient languages, neuro-addiction, murder, betrayal, revenge, and ultimately, love. As it challenges readers to rethink the agendas of the religious organizations that have become global superpowers, it poses startling questions that deconstruct the very nature of belief.

Well...in the interest of letting sleeping dogs lie, I was going to refrain...but here goes.

The person you accused of being a spammer...for one post...which almost certainly does not equal spam...did contact me. She an atheist author, who has written a book with atheist views. Her views and ability to post here is just as valid as anyones, including yours. How is her book any less valid than your (or my) ramblings? Trouncing on her 1...that's one...O*N*E post as spam, really just shows that you are looking for contention and crusing for attack material rather than truly interested in the free exchange of ideas...which would most certainly include a heads up from an atheist author about a book she has written that we all may be interested in. Or not. If not...move on to the next post.

And for the record, I gave you nothing, you pinned the badge on yourself when you decided to ride range on who posts what here, rather than reading what you want and letting others do the same.

Lori...I wish you success...thanks for the kind words. I am looking forward to the read. And I am very glad that the other atheist sites you posted on treated you better. I am all for promoting atheist authors and views, and think forums like this are great places for us to hear of the work or to spread the word.

Looks like...eh? Ok, guess that is proof enough. Shoot her!

I am glad the Atheist Nexus has people like you watching out for us...after all, since we all shucked off religion we are unable to fend for ourselves and we may be exposed to....da da dum....advertising! eeek.

Sorry...I would rather belong to a group that would passively let something like that slip by than a group intent on passing off-hand judgements with no real proof, cause or need. Makes me think that at any moment I might type the wrong thing and get ushered to the dustbin, because of what it "looks like" to you. But keep up the good work. *gives you the thumbs up sign for being such a good blog cop*

LOL...we sit here and blog away, whether people want to read what we have to say or not...then an author comes along and gives a concise and interesting plug for her book, and we treat her post as if it is spam. What makes anyone think that her book is any less interesting that what anyone else has to say in their blog posts?

Sounds interesting Lori...I love a good novel that creatively weaves in theology and intrigue. I will look into it. Thanks for the info. And I can come back here to the Nexus to let you know if I liked it or not...makes it worth the read right there. :-)
