Had I read "The Age of Reason, Parts I & II" by Thomas Paine fifty years ago, my life might have taken a different course, not wasting so many years in a bogus, self-sabotaging, guilt-engendering belief system.
Paine wrote Part I in 1793, was subsequently arrested and imprisoned in Luxembourg Prison in Paris, then followed up with Part II after his release from prison in 1795.
Despite his books supportive of the French and American revolutions, only six attended his funeral, likely because his works destroyed Biblical Christianity, both in logic and using internal evidence from the Bible itself to undermine the authenticity of every book in the Old and New Testament.
Just one example of Paine's logic:
Revelation: "Revelation, when applied to religion, means something communicated immediately from God to man. But. . . something revealed to a certain person, and not revealed to any other person, is revelation to that person only. . .and hearsay to every other."
