Bigotry, superstition and hypocrisy worse than atheism. Divided into two parts. Part I. In which is prov'd, that bigotry, superstition and hypocrisy, are not only more pernicious to society than atheism, but are also a greater offence to God himself. Wherein also is demonstrated, That it is not only lawful to reason and examine into the Truth of Faith and Religion; but it is likewise the Duty of all Men so to do: And also, that it is inconsistent with the Attributes of God to punish, or reward any one Man for his Belief, when entertain'd by Speculation. At the End of which, is a short Discourse on Deism. Part II. The autho relates a discourse that pass'd between a friend and himself: In which Discourse, his Friend recounts several Dialogues that pass'd between a Jew and himself, at Amsterdam; in which, the Former delivers his Thoughts concerning Religion. And also endeavours, philosophically, to prove, That the Soul is an immaterial Substance: And, that even granting it Matter, to be impossible for the Mind to perish at the Dissolution of the Body. And likewise, he proves it to be the Duty of all Men to think freely. At the End of which, his Friend also delivers his Opinion on Religion, under a Metaphor. By M. Robles.
