Well into the 21st century, our species continues to participate in beliefs and customs that seem more suited to the Bronze Age than the Information Age, some of which involve poisonous snakes, holy smoke, urine bubbles, crystals, tarot cards, aliens, costumed virgins, and, of course, an offering plate. Join Seth Andrews for a random romp across the planet and a humorous look at some of humanity's Sacred Cows.

What made the experience of listening to Sacred Cows the most enjoyable?

Of course Seth Andrews' tremendous voice helps when listening to this book, but it wouldn't have been such a treat if the content hadn't been both funny and informative at the same time. In short: good job on the content and very well performed.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Sacred Cows?

The chapter on the pope was a blast.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It certainly made me smile and i even laughed out loud from time to time. But with all stories I made sure that I had my hand near my face making the face-palming easier....And I was amazed about some of the stories in the book. For a non-US person (the Netherlands) it was nice to have stories from all over the world.

Any additional comments?

Some of the stories I already knew from the podcast Thinking Atheist, but some were new to me. Those I enjoyed a lot!
