Which came first: Religion or the brain?
Date:3/8/2010

not matched by nonreligious remedies.

Robin Fox, university professor of social theory at Rutgers University says, "With economy, evidence, and no little wit and elegance, Lionel Tiger and Michael McGuire look for the answer to religion's ubiquity and persistence in the only place possible: the human brain. Aserious and informative argument."

GOD'S BRAIN is "a scientific take on religion that is not at the same time trying to destroy it" adds Melvin Konner, author of The Tangled Wing: Biological Constraints on the Human Spirit. The thesis provides key insights into the complexities of our brain and the role of religion, perhaps the brain's most remarkable creation.
