Writing the Elfyverse . . . and beyond

Just Reviewed “The Spiritual Brain” at SBR

leave a comment »

Folks, I was impressed with Mario Beauregard and Denyse O’Leary’s THE SPIRITUAL BRAIN: A NONMATERIALIST’S LOOK AT NEUROSCIENCE.  Authors Beauregard (the neuroscientist) and O’Leary (the journalist) have created an engaging, thought-provoking book that deals with what they call RSMEs — Religious, Mystical, and/or Spiritual Experiences.  They also excoriate promissory materialism and all its works, and point out that many scientists, not to put too fine a point on it, worship at the altar of Science — leaving much room for doubt with regards to their worldview completely out.

Anyway, here’s a link for y’all:

Have at!
