"The real beauty of the book is underlain in the fact that even though the author has argued the existence of God and given his explanations of the various myths he doesn't try to burden the reader with his philosophy."

"I would strongly recommend to each and every one, not to challenge your beliefs but to know the whys to most of the things we have believed in life till now. This one book will make you look back at it all with a skeptical mindset."
"Ajay Kansal has very beautifully portrayed how the concept of religion and the fear of religion came into being. "

"True to his observation that ‘Mankind always had an instinct to explore the mysteries around,’ Dr. Ajay Kansal has made a serious attempt to explore the mystery surrounding Gods. But has the book impacted my belief in God? No, but it definitely has me pondering about certain beliefs, certain practices."

Religious scriptures the world over claim that one or the other god made all plants and animals, but science has not yet identified any supernatural power that created and governed living beings.
Was it man who came up with the idea of gods to help him cope with his own fears?
Could it be that ancient people attributed natural phenomena-unfathomable and frightening to them-to the working of invisible gods?
What kind of sufferings or fears made people bow before unseen powers or gods as we call them? When were these gods created?
Who invented morals and methods of worship?
Who wrote the ancient scriptures such as the Bible and the Vedas?
Most crucially, have gods and the scriptures shaped our responses to the world around us?
The Evolution of Gods seeks to answer these questions, and explains scientifically how, when and why religions and gods came into being. Ajay Kansal marshals anthropological and historical facts about the development of religions in a simple and straight forward manner to assert that it was mankind that created gods, and not the other way around.
