TR 9:35-11:00 AM
Can belief in God be reduced to brain activity? Are religious beliefs merely by-products of our cognitive evolution? Or is the brain designed to allow us access to a higher level of reality? The Cognitive Science of Religion brings cutting edge findings from neuroscience, evolutionary theory, and cognitive psychology to the study of religion. In this course we will explore this exciting new field and grapple with its implications for religious belief and disbelief.
