God's Debris isn't a conventional book. It is written on three separate levels by Scott Adams, better known as the creator of the Dilbert comic. What is less known about Adams is that he's a trained hypnotist.

God's Debris is what happens when creativity and hypnosis intersect. On the surface, God's Debris is a simple fictional story of a delivery man who encounters an Avatar who knows literally everything. The Avatar reveals the truth about God, reality, science, probability, human perception, and even social success. Adams uses a writing trick to make the Avatar's answers appear more persuasive than they should be.

The second level of the book involves arguing with your friends about what parts the Avatar got wrong. Some of what the Avatar says is consistent with science, and some of it is pure fiction. See if you can tell which is which. You and your friends will come to very different conclusions.The third level of the book is the most provocative, but it won't have the same effect on all listeners. The story is designed as a very subtle hypnotic induction, with the intent of giving some (but not all) listeners the sensation that the Avatar's words actually contain the wisdom of the universe.

For some listeners, especially those under 30, God's Debris can be a mind altering experience. Fair Warning: Because of the hypnotic writing style, listeners tend to have strong reactions to the work. If you are in the top 5% of the population in terms of scientific knowledge, or philosophical reading, there's a good chance you will have an angry reaction to God's Debris. But if you are more of a seeker than a know-it-all, your experience could be something special. Download and start listening now!

    " Thus proving that brilliancy in one area does not guarantee brilliancy in any other. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marissa | 2/6/2014

    " Interesting. Changed my perspective on shit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 1/26/2014

    " Love Scott Adams for Dilbert, and this book is quite interesting too. Looks at religion in a way I had not previously. Good stuff! Short read, easy read, fun and unique. All around great book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard Mulholland | 1/21/2014

    " Less fun than the first time "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dorit | 1/20/2014

    " It really did make me think. I love Scott Adams. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jamie | 1/17/2014

    " I was blown away with the first few chapters but then it got too much into physics and string theories and just plain gibberish. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Saellys | 1/16/2014

    " While this is mostly bollocks, it's fun to think about. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jared Reck | 1/13/2014

    " Twists your brain all over the place: students have loved this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 allimo | 1/11/2014

    " A little silly, especially in the discussions of science, but somewhat interesting, and a really quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mohamed Awada | 1/6/2014

    " Really provocative way of thinking and it makes you scratch your head. Worth reading and questioning. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Geoff Little | 1/1/2014

    " Human? You *have* to read this. Wildly self-effacing (Scott Adams is the creator of Dilbert, BTW), super creative, and perfectly surprising. One of more mind-expanding books on God I've read. And I've brushed up against a few... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nirmal S | 12/28/2013

    " From the mind that cooked up Dilbert comes an equally stimulating and enjoyable experience. God's Debris captivated me from start to finish with it's simplistic yet unconventionally brilliant look at life. A must read for anyone who enjoys getting their minds blown up into debris! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karishma Raghunath | 9/26/2013

    " Phenomenal! Guaranteed to be enjoyed by anyone with an open mind. Be prepared to get ya brain spun! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aric | 7/5/2013

    " I was given this book to read one weekend. After finishing it, I wondered "Why isn't this book handed out to grade 8's? it's the perfect book for them!" "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wombok | 6/25/2013

    " While this book presented an interesting theory, one I hadn't heard of before, the way it was written became quite annoying to me. I also found that important questions to the theory were not asked. However, it was a nice quick read that presented a theory I was eager to think about. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Satyen Rai | 11/8/2012

    " Nice thought provoking book. "

    " Fabulous ! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Betsy | 5/25/2012

    " Loved it..very thought provoking and entirely plasusible. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Virochan | 5/11/2012

    " mind twisting and thought provoking !! good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daphne | 12/6/2011

    " Not heavy on plot, but plenty of substance for thought. I took my sweet time reading it, but at less than 150 pages, it's easily an afternoon read. Looking forward to re-reading and pondering the ideas presented. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Martin Spernau | 8/14/2011

    " It is thought provoking AND it is funny. It also makes a lot of sense. So my only gripe? Too few people have read it, so there's not a lot of people you can talk to about it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bartee | 5/16/2011

    " Definitely makes one think. Best complement I can give is that it makes you want to argue/discuss its bold statements which are sometimes contradictory and uninformed. But it is a thought experiment after all and in that sense it flourishes quite nicely. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jared | 5/1/2011

    " Twists your brain all over the place: students have loved this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela | 4/29/2011

    " I read this for free online and then had to buy a hard copy - WOW "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ggroogle | 3/10/2011

    " Absolutely a great book for those with an open mind who dare to look at life void of the constraints of traditionally accepted ideas. A truly refreshing experience. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Merebear | 3/10/2011

    " Hilarious and thought provoking book. It is short and to the point. Excellent story with an essay format. "

    " This book certainly does make your think. I liked the way that it made you question the things you take for granted. Very fascinating and a quick read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Eveningstar2 | 1/30/2011

    " An interesting conversation with some interesting theories. I finished this in two hours; it wasn't worth the price tag, but was worth reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anabel | 1/14/2011

    " Not for the faint of heart or religiously devoted. But if you're "open-minded" this book will mess with your head. In a good way. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wombok | 1/13/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rouslan | 12/16/2010

    " Interesting idea, but writing feels a bit stretched to invoke an emotional appeal. The author jumps among random topics with little connection. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Virochan | 12/15/2010

    " mind twisting and thought provoking !! good read. "
