The God Virus: How Religion Infects Our Lives and Culture

On this episode of Mormonish Podcast, Rebecca and Landon sit down with Dr. Darrell Ray, founder of the Recovery From Religion organization to discuss the theory behind his book, "The God Virus: How Religion Affects Our Lives and Cultures.

Dr.Ray's innovative theory compares biological virus strategies of survival and domination to methods of religious propagation throughout the world. Once you understand these innovative concepts, you will view religion in a whole new way.

Dr. Ray is one of our favorite guests and we just love to talk to him. We know you'll really enjoy the conversation too.
