"The Curse of Ignorance" by Arthur Findlay
Paperback, 2 volumes:
Volume 1: ISBN 0 947823 33 6
Volume 2: ISBN 0 947823 34 4
Arthur Findlay OBE (1883-1964) took seven years to complete this two-volume history of the Christian era, which was first published in 1947. The Curse of Ignorance records past follies and achievements, and acts as a guide for present and future generations. This work is no less than a revolution in thought.
Arthur Findlay writes:
"There are two ways of life, one leading to righteousness, which brings happiness, and the other to unrighteousness, which produces misery. One leads to kindness, mercy and sympathy, the other to hatred and cruelty; one to tolerance and the other to intolerance; one to justice and the other to injustice; one to truth and the other to error; one to peace and concord and the other to quarrelling and war; one to mental development and the other to mental contraction.
One is the Secular way (non religious) and the other is the Theological (religious); one is the Democratic and the other the Despotic; one is the sane and the other the insane."
This passage sums up just how badly the British people have been deceived:
"Such, however, is still [the Church's] influence that this book, which tells the story of the past honestly and fearlessly, will be kept out of our schools and universities by the authorities, and consequently, only in later life will those with enquiring minds discover the truth."

Arthur Findlay's other works include:
The Psychic Stream (1939)
The Psychic Stream has been the cause of every religion, the interaction between the Earth and the etheric realms. The outcome of 35 years of study, this book traces the streams influence upon religious thought throughout the ages.
The Rock Of Truth (1933)
The author makes incisive commentary on Christianity and compares it to Spiritualism.
Subtitled "Spiritualism, the coming World Religion," the author examines such far reaching points as "What did Jesus really teach?" "Spiritualism, and what it stands for," "The Philosophy of Spiritualism" and all important points. This superb book investigates - and indicts - orthodoxy, and can rightly be regarded as a classic in the annals of psychic literature.
"I am one of the first to admire the unselfish social work of many clergy in the slums and elsewhere, but these activities are quite apart from those with which this book is concerned. Many others besides the clergy of the orthodox faith are engaged in missions to the poor. It is not the social side of the Church's work that this book attacks, but orthodox Christianity as preached from nearly every pulpit in Christendom, and it is this which affects the great majority of the people."
"If I were not able to put before the people a better religion, a truer religion, and a greater religion for them to observe and follow, I would not trouble to attack what is false, as it gives a certain measure of comfort to many. Spiritualism, however, is an infinitely greater help to us in our lives and also in our deaths than the old faiths which satisfied our ancestors. My wish is not to knock down and destroy. My aim is to build a nobler edifice, but before this edifice can be built decaying rubbish about its foundations must be cleared away."
The Unfolding Universe
This completes Arthur Findlay's much acclaimed trilogy, the two previous books being 'On the Edge of the Etheric' and 'The Rock of Truth'. This volume represents mature conclusions which have not been reached hastily.
On The Edge Of The Etheric
Findlay's first book made it very clear that the subject of survival after death comes within the laws of nature, that it is the scientific discipline called subatomic physics the study of the invisible part of the universe.
The Way Of Life
About the journey through death to a much more intense and wonderful life.
Where Two Worlds Meet
The verbatim record of a series of nineteen seances with John Sloan, the famous Glasgow direct voice medium.

"There is no greater crime in the cosmos than to deliberately indoctrinate young trusting minds with false teachings for selfish ends. From this one heinous crime stems all crime. The perpetrators of this evil deed will pay a terrible price in mental remorse when they pass from this world."
