[Mara] Einstein and the Theory of [religious] Relativity

Monday, February 09, 2009

iTunes search for "Douglas Rushkoff" produces this CUNY podcast of a forum featuring our search subject and Mara Einstein, who is hocking her book Brands of Faith. She is cogent and unafraid to disagree with such a sage as Rushkoff. I'm interested.

Order the book. Begin reading. Find this:

". . . religion is a commodity product. The majority of religions offer same end benefit for the consumer (salvation, peace of mind, etc.). Though packaged differently, fundamentally they are the same product, no different than buying one shampoo versus another."

What am I into here?

Fear not, Padawan. The problem is not that we're selling shampoo, its that we got told ours was the only kind on the market.

Frankly, I found it relieving to know that there were lots of brands.
