Steve Taylor‘s “The Fall” is an epic work. It’s both an academic and spiritual tour de force that covers the birth and subsequent explosion of the human ego throughout history. Using documented evidence from a wide range of archaeologists and anthropologists, he presents (what I opine is) an overwhelming argument that there is no innate “selfish gene“. You know, the one that everyone seemingly takes for granted and conveniently blames for man’s inhumanity to man.

In a nutshell, Mr. Taylor asserts that before 8000 BCE (yes, he goes all the way back to the dawn of man and painstakingly traces the life of the ego right up to us)  all the available historical evidence points to the non-existence of war, oppression, patriarchy, and human exploitation of others. Please bookmark this page, read the book for the juicy details, and report your personal conclusions back here. Regardless of whether your UCB has been altered, I’d love to hear your before-and-after thoughts on the subject.
