People who don't like this book make me laugh

All of the people who harshly criticize this book are so lost in their own petty thoughts that they fail to realize truth even when it is placed right in front of them. "Neale" asks stupid questions," they all say. When in fact, he asks just the right questions. What do you want him to ask?? What his favorite color is, or to more thoroughly explain the E=mc2 theory? Obviously the most important questions would pertain to personal life, why we are here and our relationship to God. Moreover, other critics briefly skim the book and then criticize God for speaking in layman's terms or for using incorrect English. Did you snobs ever think that ANY concept is easier to learn if the verbiage is not as complex? Is God "too good" to come down to the level of the average person and speak his or her language? And for crying out loud, God did not say "I don't like alcohol," he said the body was not meant to intake it. Is that too hard fo! r you critics to understand? He did not forbid anyone to take it, nor did he make a value judgement on it. He only stated that in its original form, the body (mind) would ultimately function better (if just a little better) without it. Then I see critics saying God is contradicting himself, because he wrote the Bible. Hello, God did not write the Bible, MAN did, and edited it at his will. There ARE truths in the bible, but mostly mythologies and biased interpretations. And for those of you that would say, "Well, the bible has been believed by TONS of people for thousands of years," did you know that at one time, nearly the entire world believed the earth was flat, until one man found the real truth, which MADE SENSE (like this book), but everyone STILL refused to believe him, and actually persecuted him for making sense. Lastly, this is not some "God says do whatever you want so isn't that great, we will all now go out and rape, loot and pillage" boo! k. He only states that he gave us all true freedom in that! he himself would never set out to punish us for something we did. He DESIRES that we improve, as he would like us to be happy. But besides that, do you think that means that you do not sow what you reap in life? Be a selfish, mean jerk your whole life and see where you end up when your older. I guarantee that even if by chance you end up materially happy, you will not be happy internally. So, this is not some "free reign do what you want" hippie philosophy book. READ it, and understand it, THEN criticize, but not before, lest you waste your time.
