4.0 out of 5 stars A new look on an old matter, 15 Nov 2010
This review is from: Gods Brain (Hardcover)
If you are looking for a book that discusses religion but you think you already had your share from the pro and the against camps' "preaching to the choir" arguments, this one is the right choice. The authors are drawing attention on many aspects of religion as its functions in an individual believer's life. The overall function for the authors is 'brainsoothe', as they put it. But while getting there, they pick interesting points, many of which we see in everyday life without paying attention. God's Brain is not leaving the domains of the scientific method at - almost - any point, hence saving the reader from the trouble of eliminating speculations from facts. It is definitely an interesting read.

Still, there are a few minus points: The authors make an unneccessary effort for political correctness, although on rare accasions. In this regard, one might find intriguing their attempt to discuss their scientific arguments with Karl Marx! Also the book is obviously written before some recent scientific advancements so you may notice they say we might be interbreds of Homo Sapiens and Neanderthal, while it is a proven scientific fact since May 2010 that we are. But certainly this one could also be in the authors' credit for their educated guessing.
