The God Concept is a serious questioning of the existence of any deity other than a concept of the mind, that examines the basis of evidence in the Old Testament, early Jewish history, the gods of Mesopotamia, the emergence of Yahwism, the making of theocracy and evolution of awareness of the divine. Against this deistic tradition, Stuart A. West considers the tradition of Western rational science, philosophy and biology, in particular Newton, Hume, Kant, and Darwin. He explores the implications of Darwin's work as a non-believer, his attack on the concept of intelligent design and how Darwin's own observations of nature led to his loss of faith. West then turns to the evolutionary science, and cosmology, the work of Richard Dawkins, Erich Fromm and Dan Jacobson.He concludes that, given the global challenge to humankind of the Coronavirus pandemic, the religious could very well argue that the God of the Bible has deserted humanity or perhaps, in reality, this demonstrates the fallacy of the God hypothesis.
