"The best any human can do is to pick a delusion that helps get him through the day. This is why people of different religions can generally live in peace. At some level, we all suspect that other people don't believe their own religion any more than we believe ours."
"The rain made everything sound different - the engine of my delivery van, the traffic as it rolled by on a film of fallen clouds, the occasional dull honk. I didn't have a great job, but it was,'t bad either. I knew the city so well I could lose myself in thought and still do the work, still get paid, still have plenty of time for myself. When you're inside your own head, the travel time between buildings evaporates. It's as if I could vanish from one stop and reappear at the next." - opening paragraph

Back Cover Blurb:
God's Debris is the First non-Dilbert, non-humour book by best-selling author Scott Adams, creator of Dilbert. Adams describes God's Debris as a thought experiment wrapped in a story. It's designed to make your brain spin around inside your skull.
Imagine that you meet a very old man who - you eventually realize - knows literally everything. Imagine that he explains for you the great mysteries of life: quantum physics, evolution, God, gravity, light, psychic phenomena, and probability - in a way so simple, so novel, and so compelling that it all fits together and makes perfect sense. What does it feel like to suddenly understand everything?
You may or may not find the final answer to the big question inside, but God's Debris might provide the most compelling vision of reality you will ever read. The thought experiment is this: try to figure out what's wrong with the old man's explanation of reality. Share the book with your smart friends, then discuss it later while enjoying a beverage.
God's Debris is the number on best-selling e-book on the planet. it has no violence or sex, but the ideas are powerful and not appropriate for readers under fourteen.
