Some people believe that crushed rhino horn can cure a range of illnesses and it is even viewed as an aphrodisiac in Traditional Asian Medicine. However, the rhino horn is comprised of keratin, the same material as our fingernails and has no medicinal value. As a matter of fact, if rhino horn proved to have medicinal benefits, it would mean that we too can acquire these effects by biting our own fingernails! Unfortunately, this ill-conceived notion is the reason why rhinos are being hunted to extinction. Look at what belief can make people do.

If you are a theist, the purpose of this book is to reason you out of something you had no reason to believe in the first place. If you are already on the fences, I look to burn down that structure.
