Kersey Graves November 21, in Brownsville, Pennsylvania — September 4, in Richmond, Indiana was a skeptic , atheist , rationalist , spiritualist , reformist writer, who was popular on the American freethought circuit of the late 19th century.

THE BIBLE OF BIBLES;

Kersey Graves deals with the common ground from which these holy books arose. According to Graves, true religion does not regard God as a personal monarch, governing the universe by the caprices of an angry and fickle mind, but as the living, moving, all-pervading, self-sustaining, energizing, vivifying power which moves and sustains the machinery of the whole universe. Graves does not deny a divine force, but ridicules the assumption this force has a personality. Partially, by enumerating mistake after mistake made by many holy Biblical figures, including Jesus. Evil is treated in a more dialectic way and seen as a force that pervades not only the human realm, but the entire nature.
