READ & DOWNLOAD ✓ Small Gods Ing in the form of a tortoise a manifestation far below god like status in anyone's book In such instances you need an acolyte and fast Preferably one who won't ask too many uestio. One of the Discworld novels that doesn t belong to any character sub series Small Gods is nevertheless one of the best ones I ve read so farTerry Pratchett was a humanist That is to say he wasn t religious He apparently distinguished between religion as in religious institutions such as The Church and faith as in what people believe in their own hearts and minds and was especially critical of the former I m much the same Personally I find religion silly period It has had its place in the evolution of mankind surely but not nowadays And yet look around I keep hearing people talk about all the good this or that person or institution is doing for religious reasons and maybe some are but they are not the norm and many do it for ulterior reasons anyway eg wanting to get recognition for what they are doing or being afraid of some form of hell or whateverThis and are points Sir Terry is addressing in this book as wellWe meet Brutha a novice in the temple of the Great God Om The problem Well for starters Brutha might be honest to a fault and have an impeccable memory but he also just wants peace which he is unlikely to get to enjoy since he s been chosen as the new Prophet And then there is the tiny problem of The Great God Om who is speaking to Brutha currently being trapped in the body of a cute little tortoiseIn a world full of gods and saints and whatnot with almost everyone believing something else they have to find a way to restore Om to His Former Glory and possibly make things a little better in Brutha s home country and some neighbouring ones as wellAuthoritarian systems the Discworld version of the Inuisition gods saints demons lions eagles philosophers priests and some mysterious monks safeguarding history The reader gets a wide cast of characters that are all tragically funny and always spot on when it comes to condemning wilfull ignorance and promoting free will Pratchett nails it with his snarky and bone dry observations on religious upbringing I should know because despite being an atheisthumanist I was born into a Roman Catholic family In his signature funny and light way he shows how these oppressive systems work often so that those trapped in them don t even realize it Moreover he makes valid points such as that either you do nice good things because you want to and because it s the right thing to do or you shouldn t bother However despite all that the book is never preachy see what I did there P or boring On the contrary the mad romp through several hitherto unseen countries on the disc was delightful and fast paced and I was constantly laughing about the clumsiness and bad luck of Om and Brutha

READ & DOWNLOAD ✓ Small Gods Just because you can't explain it doesn't mean it's a miracle' Religion is a controversial business in the Discworld Everyone has their own opinion and indeed their own gods Who co. It s one of Pratchett s best works retelling what has happened happens and will happen as soon as faith goes mad uncontrolled and vicious tries to expand it s sphere of influence and doesn t care about the foundations and rules contradicting its own commandmentsThe idea of the manifested power of belief imagination and prayers is an often seen trope in fantasy and sci fi in this case defined by the simple formula of believers power But it can go many directions for instance mind viruses and plagues infecting other faiths systems programming errors turning the persons mad fractions trying to manipulate to get the most beliefs different ways of psi magic and fantasy systems to control harvest and use the power for peace and war combining it with technology etcIt s great how the deity view spoileris irritated by the way humans invented many rules holy books misused its name for product placement and branding institutionalized torture and holy wars and in general didn t take the advice it gave to them seriously The it gets to know about the real world the shocked and disgusted it is hide spoiler
