BernardWerber said that he started to write God with an imaginary idea that there are witnesses somewhere in the universe who have watched the history of the earth from the beginning. In his opinion, the history of mankinds on the earth has been carried out based on massacre and betrayal. The current history we are aware of is the one of the winner recorded in the winner’s side.
