The Bible doesn't make BuzzFeed's list of books that could make the world a better place

I don't spend a lot of time on BuzzFeed, but every once in a while a link will catch my attention. Like "21 Books That Could Make The World A Better Place." Here are the books that made the list:
  1. Reason for Hope by Jane Goodall
  2. Sold by Patricia McCormick
  3. Night by Elie Wiesel
  4. A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah
  5. A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
  6. Long Walk to Freedom by Nelson Mandela
  7. The Big Necessity by Rose George
  8. Room by Emma Donoghue
  9. Les Misérables by Victor Hugo
  10. The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch
  11. The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz
  12. Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer
  13. If I Just Had Two Wings by Virginia Frances Schwartz
  14. His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman
  15. Quiet by Susan Cain
  16. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou
  17. How to Lie With Statistics by Darrell Huff
  18. The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls
  19. Siddhartha by Herman Hesse
  20. The Tao of Pooh by Benjamin Hoff
  21. Walden by Henry David Thoreau
Naturally, the only book that actually could make the world a better place didn't make the list.

Ah, but notice what did make the list at # 14--atheist Pullman's inferior C. S. Lewis knock-off. By itself that tells us something about the list compiler's worldview.
