This is just one among the many dramatic and exposing questions asked in this book, Why is it. Another question deals with how humanity came to be.
Why is it that believers cannot agree that we have a common ancestry with the monkeys but rather accept that we descend from incest?
Could it really be that God who is all-knowing, all-seeing and all-powerful could in any way be surprised at the outcome of his creation?
What is the difference between what we have been taught to believe and what our holy texts really say?
