Review of Justin L. Barrett, “Born Believers: The Science of Children’s Religious Beliefs”
Quote: Belief in God is childish. So reports Justin L. Barrett, an Oxford University professor who studies the cognitive science of religion, in his new book Born Believers. To be more specific, Barrett argues that belief in gods appears to be a naturally occurring human phenomenon.
I almost bought the book for Barrett's chapter on atheism. Fascinating and provocative.
