This lecture 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 developed over the millenia that lend themselves to the generation and embrace of religious explanations.

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.
