Mr. Shaw maintains that is not necessary to believe in a Creator in order to derive meaning out of life. Good and bad events will happen whether or not we believe in a God, and the fight against evil can be won without religious beliefs. The author concludes that mankinds religious beliefs have become entirely inappropriate, and that humans have outgrown their need for the supernatural. The survival of the human species depends upon mankinds own inner strengths and resources, and not upon any gods or spirits.
