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.

Re: ****Official RGT Article Thread****

Isn't there a law against cannibalism?

Wouldn't it fall under thou shalt not kill?

Or how about the NT: "Love your neighbor as yourself."

God controls the circumstances, yes, but why can't people control themselves? Could it be that without God's help self control is impossible?

Of course, free will and insanity get in the way of helping a lot of people. God has to overcome both of them before He helps anybody.

Atheist Diego Rivera -- My Art; My Life: An Autobiography (with Gladys March)

An Experiment in Cannibalism:

http://www.american-buddha.com/cia.d...e.cannibal.htm

Quote of Rivera: "I have never returned to the eating of human flesh, not out of a squeamishness, but because of the hostility with which society looks upon the practice. Yet is this hostility entirely rational? We know it is not."

Christian Cannibalism
http://newsrescue.com/2011/09/birom-...#axzz20FG23hAA

Quote:
on the 28th of August; Birom (Berom) Christians were recorded in these videos, eating Muslims they had killed and roasted. The event occurred when Christians surrounded Muslims observing their Eid annual holy devotion. Due to a miscommunication with the police, there was no usual requested security at the venue, a necessity in polar Jos. Christian youth surrounded the praying Muslims, burned their cars, pelted them and then killed, roasted and ate some.
