Science, Skepticism, and the search for God. 2nd Edition By Michael Shermer (330 Pages)Publisher: W. H. Freeman, 2000
Drawing on studies that bring scientific fact to such phenomena as out-of-body experiences, coincidence, and extrasensory perception, best-selling author and science historian Michael Shermer dissects the workings of the human mind, exploring how and why humans put their faith in a higher power, create rules of morality, turn to apocalyptic myths, and negotiate compromises between science and religion. In this new edition, Shermer explores findings and theories from neuroscientists, psychiatrists, and epidemiologists, as well as recent polls on religious belief, to illuminate how reason and skepticism can shape our understanding of the universe and our place in it. An all-new afterword covers the latest scientific research on how the brain makes us believers or skeptics.
