WARNING: CONTENT MAY BE DAMAGING TO RELIGIOUS BELIEFS In 1995, C.W. Wilson’s life was changed forever when he discovered satanic iconography veiled in the Catholic Church’s venerated “Our Lady of Guadalupe”. He shares this insight in a new novel inspired by actual events. The leaders of the most powerful religion in the world are not who they claim to be... And they have a secret. In the shadowed underworld of the illegal narcotics trade, Kentucky, a seemingly normal young man of questionable morals and principals, unwittingly discovers a blasphemous subliminal image in one of the world’s most beloved icons, and his search for answers uncovers a deception so malevolent it could destroy the very foundation of Christianity. In a world void of physical and mental limitations, Kentucky struggles to come to grips with Christianity’s darkest and most closely guarded secret. Will the promise of an eternal life in heaven still hold sway once the world discovers death is merely an option?
Philosophers have been thinking about lying for several thousand years, yet this topic has only recently become a central area of academic interest for philosophers of language, epistemologists, ethicists, and political philosophers. Lying: Language, Knowledge, Ethics, Politics provides the first dedicated collection of philosophical essays on the emerging topic of lying. Adopting an inter-subdisciplinary approach, this volume breaks new methodological ground in exploring the ways that a better understanding of language can inform the study of knowledge, ethics, or politics - and vice-versa. How can we lie when it is unclear what exactly we believe, or when we have contradictory beliefs? Can corporations lie, and if so how? Is lying always wrong, or always at least prima facie wrong? What can one learn from a liar? Can we lie to mindless machines? These engaging questions and many more are explored at length in this accessible reference text.
