summarizes the scientific research that explains the human
inclination to create divinity.
It is not a defense of
atheism, but rather shows what science has to
say about the various modules and capacities that humans have

Although the author make it clear that he is not a man of faith, the
lecture is not an attack on faith so much as an account of why
people might believe, other than because itís true.
Very current and a good portal for
someone seeking to learn more about the field.
