Forget Me Not - Neither religion nor science came to my rescue (Deus-hominism)
Forget Me Not is a novella consisting of 67 pages about a teenage girl named Arde who suffers Prosopagnosia - a congenital brain impairment which she inherited from her suicidal late mother whereby she cannot recognize people's faces, be they family members or just acquaintances. The only way Arde is able to recognize people is through their voices. Because of the vested interests of scientists and religious figures in her birthplace of Willow Town Arde's brain condition is exploited.
In the novella, Deus-hominism represents the convoluted, hypocritical and inhumane aspects of religions by and large. The hideous actions of the High Spelunca, a Deus-hominist priest reflect the grudge that religious figures have borne against all critical thinkers throughout history. Which characters embody the critical thinking qualities? How is the value and belief system of the Deus-hominem Temple challenged? And what is the outcome of such a challenge? The answers to these questions can be found in "Forget Me Not" Novella which is available for free download from 9 until 13 October 2015 on Amazon.
