Inherit the Wind, the Sequel



Such a strange coincidence in Friday news releases about trial lawyers with new books.

"Tragic Blessings:"

(May 23, 2008) -- Every day, trial lawyer Bret Merkle wakes up and wonders whether or not he'll make it through another day. One thing he knows for certain; if he hadn't discovered that all things are possible with God, he would have given up the struggle by now.

"Beyond Reasonable Doubt: A Lawyer's Case for Disbelief in God":

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) May 23, 2008 -- A lawyer with an upcoming book denying the existence of God is releasing excerpts from the work.

In Beyond Reasonable Doubt: A Lawyer's Case for Disbelief in God, Geoff Henley makes a sweeping indictment of scripture and organized religion.

Calling the serpent of Eden a Muppet, the former prosecutor writes that creationist accounts in the Bible and Koran are "bad alibis" that are no more reliable than myths like the Apache creator who descended to Earth on a sun-like disk or Ancient Egypt's god that created the universe by masturbating.

So who's going to organize the national debate tour?
