One little criticism I'll offer:


As I stated earlier, holy books contain pronouncements about the physical world. Such pronouncements are rooted in the incorrect beliefs of our ancestors, who lived when faith and science were not yet separate disciplines.

I don't think this last is true. In the ancient world, philosophy and the sciences were quite separate from religion. Aristotle and Archimedes did not mix references to Zeus or Athena in with their thought and study. (I found GK Chesterton's "The Everlasting Man" extremely helpful in pointing out to me things like this that should have been obvious, but never were.)
