A Chance Encounter
The writers of Why Men Made God have never met. In fact, they have never even spoken to one another except by email. They live on opposite sides of the world, one in France and one in Canada.
In early spring of 2014, they noticed that they were both frequently "liking" the same posts on a Facebook site for the World Pantheist Movement. That simple observation initiated comments, then conversations and the sharing of ideas, and this book is the outgrowth of that chance encounter.
